Pot Roast Bacon / Pork Belly Question

SocksManly | Jan 27, 2008 03:09 PM

I'm making a braised potroast called "Christmas Etoufee" (I think, the recipe says it's the mother of all pot roasts, takes a few days for all the steps) and it calls for a pigs foot, a beef chuck roast, and a 1/2 pound of slab bacon..

I went to the asian grocery store here and got everything I need, but I bought "pork belly" thinking it was slab bacon.. wrong right? Pretty sure this is the non-smoked version?

Also they would only sell me the pieces they had, so I bought like 2.3lbs worth.. I'm guessing I should go tomorrow and buy the proper bacon?

What else can I do with this slab of pork belly?
