Flavourful and delicious Crispy Five Spice Pork Belly, an old school dish that usually deep fry in hot oil. By using Ninja Foodi Air-Crisp function, this dish is cooked without adding oil. It’s pretty simple, just marinate and air fry till crispy. Actually I’ve tried making this dish using another air fryer, the result was not as good as Ninja Foodi. 

The Ninja Foodi multi cooker that I’m using is a combination of pressure cooker and air fryer in one pot, it’s super efficient and time saving. Besides pressure cook and air frying, there are other functions such as steam, slow cook, sear/ saute, bake/ roast, grill and keep warm. I also use it for stir frying dishes with the 5 heat levels. Overall, Ninja Foodi is a good all-in-one product, just like a portable kitchen with rice cooker, pressure cooker, air fryer, oven and stovetop functions, reasonable price and highly versatile.

1. Place pork belly in a bowl, add all marinade ingredients, mix well. Cover and marinate overnight in the fridge. 

Cut the pork belly into small chunks like I did or slice thinly if you like it more crispy.
I like it this way, the meat is crispy on the outside, inside still juicy and tender.  

I find it hard to chew the cooked pork belly skin but my hubby and kid requested skin-on pork belly, they said the skin are nice. So, it’s really up to individual preferences whether to remove or keep the skin on the pork belly.  

2. Remove pork belly from the fridge, return to room temperature, mix in some beaten egg and potato starch. 

3. Preheat Ninja Foodi for 5 minutes – Set Air Crisp mode 210’C 5mins. Place pork belly in the Cook & Crisp basket, air-crisp/ air fry 210’C for 10 minutes or till crisp and cooked through. Serve right away. If cooking bigger portion, flip once halfway cooking and adjust the cooking time accordingly.
