Chicharrones . . . .
Chicharrones are made from fresh pork belly and a cut that doesn't include much meat (the meat doesn't really hold up well to the process, it's the fat that counts here). You cannot compare store bought chicharrones to these. And they are so easy....
During our holiday food festivties, we are not really interested in huge quantities of chicharron but a taste. Cut off some pieces of fat with a sliver of meat from your pork and fry, fat down and then turn to fry the skin part. Remove from the pan and place of paper towels to drain excess fat. Salt well and enjoy!
How easy is that?
