spoon__32609Directions
In a small bowl, combine salt with 1 tablespoon of the sugar. Sprinkle the salt-sugar all over the pork belly. Wrap the pork in plastic, transfer to a plate; refrigerate overnight.
Preheat the oven to 375°. Rinse the pork and pat dry. Set the pork in a small baking dish, fat side up, and add 1/2 cup of water. Bake for 45 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 325° and bake for about 45 minutes longer, until the meat is very tender. Let the pork cool, then cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 400°. Cut the cold pork belly into 1 1/2-inch cubes. In a medium cast-iron skillet, heat the caramel over moderate heat. Add the pork and turn to coat with caramel. When the sauce starts to bubble, transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 20 minutes, turning the pork 3 or 4 times until the cubes are evenly crisp.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer the pork belly to plates. Spoon the caramel over the pork. Sprinkle with the cashews and serve.
