Pork Rinds?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

So my Exec Chef and I have decided to start curing and smoking our own BACON!!!! We are also making some PANCETTA!! But after we have the pork belly in the cure we are left over with quite a bit of pork skin. We have decided to try and make some pork rinds. but neither of us have made them before we have looked into some recipes and watched a few videos. But there are soooo many different ways people have made pork rinds. we cant really decide which way to do it.

 

So, have any of you made them before? If so how? Your input would be greatly appreciated!!

This should be in food and cooking.  It'll get a lot more action there.

It's a time-consuming process I think.  Boil the skins until they're very soft, scrape ALL the fat off the skin, dehydrate (very low-temp oven / dehydrator). Then deep fry, just like a prawn cracker.  I believe the momofuku cookbook has a recipe for that.

Spot on with the chef above except i run them in the oven on full steam, scrape them slice julianne dehydrate and store in airtight boxes until i need them. fry them in something that you can push them fully submerged for the best result and salt after.

Save them for yourself.  Season with Lawry's and bake 'til crisp.  Pretty tasty.  Not healthy. 

Fun to eat while watching health-conscience people gag.

Be kinda careful,  though, they can be tough on teeth.
