Here are a few tips for prepping the pork belly:
In order to prepare pork belly, it is best to freeze it for 15 minutes before cutting. This will make the meat firmer and easier to slice. Slice the pork belly in sections and leave the meat you are not working on in the freezer until you are ready for it.
If you want to cut your pork belly into thin slices, be sure to sharpen your knife before cutting. The skin should always be facing down while you are cutting.

What are the benefits of cooking a braised pork dish in an Instant Pot?

It is an excellent way to prepare braised pork dishes because it can cook the meat for hours without drying it out. Braising is a cooking technique where the meat is first seared on all sides and then cooked in liquid at a low temperature. This ensures that the meat stays moist and tender while still developing a rich flavor from all of those tasty brown bits that develop from searing.
