Crispy Pork Belly known as Moo Grob in Thailand is so delicious that just thinking about it makes my mouth water. Crispy Pork Belly is made from a piece of Pork Belly with the skin still on. Pork Belly is called Moo Sam Chan which means 3 layered pork which perfectly describes this taste exploding cut of pork.
Moo Grob will have a crispy skin, a succulent layer of fat and a moist layer of pork. Whilst you can buy Crispy Pork Belly in the markets in Thailand, if you make your own it will be much fresher and crispier, and of course if you don’t live in Thailand you have no choice.
Moo Grob is a common ingredient in many of Thailand’s popular dishes including Kana Moo Grob and Pad Phet Moo Grob.
