Crispy Pork Belly Split Pea
- 1 package of split peas, soaked overnight*
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 2 carrots, diced small
- 3 stalks of celery, diced small
- 1 tablespoon italian herbs
- 3-4 cups of water depending on thickness desired
- 1 cup of pork belly meat, shredded
In a container or pot, cover peas with 2 quarts cold water and soak overnight. *If you need a faster method, simmer the peas gently for 2 minutes, and then soak for l hour.
Heat butter in a large stock pot, add onion, carrot and celery to mix and cook for 5 minutes. Add soaked peas and italian herbs, add enough water to cover the mix of vegetables and peas.
Cover, bring to boil and then simmer for 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally. Once vegetables and peas have been cooked, add the pork belly meat.
Cook slowly, uncovered for 30 to 40 minutes. Stirring until smooth.
