Coffee Barbecue Pork Belly

  • Author: Kyndra Holley
  • Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


  • 1 1/2 cups beef stock
  • 2 pounds pork belly
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil 
  • 1 batch Low Carb Barbecue Dry Rub (get the recipe here)
  • 2 tablespoons Instant Espresso Powder (I use this brand)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Heat the beef stock in a small saucepan over medium heat until hot but not boiling.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the barbecue dry rub and espresso powder until well combined.
  4. Place the pork belly, skin side up in a shallow dish and drizzle 2 tablespoons of the olive oil over top, rubbing it over the entire pork belly.
  5. Sprinkle the rub all over the pork belly and rub in well to evenly distribute.
  6. Pour the hot stock around the pork belly and cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil. Bake for 45 minutes. Slice into 8 thick slices, or 16 slices if you like a crispier pork belly.
  7. Heat the remaining olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and sear each slice for 3 minutes on each side or until desired level of crispiness is reached.
