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.
