Manx Belly Pork
£3.50 – £4.50
Manx belly pork refers to pork belly sourced from the Isle of Man. Pork belly is a popular and versatile cut of meat known for its rich flavour, tenderness, and succulent texture. It is taken from the underside or belly of the pig and contains layers of meat and fat. Manx belly pork, specifically, comes from pigs raised on the Isle of Man. The quality and taste of the pork can be influenced by factors such as the breed of the pig, the animal’s diet, and the farming practices employed on the island. This cut of pork is highly regarded for its marbling, which refers to the intermingling of meat and fat within the muscle. The marbling in belly pork contributes to its succulence, juiciness, and flavour during cooking. Manx belly pork can be prepared and cooked in various ways to enhance its taste and texture. One popular cooking method is slow roasting, which allows the fat to render out slowly while the meat becomes tender and flavourful. The result is a melt-in-your-mouth texture with crispy, golden skin.
