Gluten Free Smoked Pork Belly Strips

Pork Belly Strips
It may be a cheap cut but pork belly has always been my favourite cut of meat. It has an amazing rich flavour and though it can be fiddly cutting all the fat off once it's cooked, it's absolutely worth it, it's the fat that gives it such a great taste.

If you don't want to smoke the ribs, either grill or fry them, they'll still taste great, but for me smoked foods win hands down.

This is a really, really simple recipe and the marinade though made from just 3 ingredients definitely packs a punch complimenting in the flavour stakes.

To serve 2/3 people.


600kg / 1.3lbs Pork Belly Strips
3 tablespoons Honey
1 tablespoon Rice Wine Vinegar
8 tablespoons Tamari Soy Sauce

Marinating The Pork Strips

  • Put the rice wine vinegar, honey and soy sauce into a container large enough to lay the strips flat and mix thoroughly
  • Add the strips and cover well with the marinade
  • Leave for at least 30 minutes

If using a stovetop smoker these will take 10 - 20 minutes to cook, should be roughly the same time if grilling or frying but it will all depend on how thick they are.

We usually serve ours with chips but you can have all sorts of sides with this, egg fried rice would work great too. I love this meal, it's so easy to make but the flavours are immense.

Weekend fast approaching, Yay!

  1. Just a quick question - are you using Tamari or regular soy sauce? Regular soy sauce contains gluten. I will be making this recipe today using low sodium tamari.

  2. Always Tamari!!! Have edited the mistake - thanks for pointing it out!
