    Ready In


  • PORK BELLY:
  • 2 -lb. pork belly
  • Salt
  • 1 Tbsp. five-spice powder
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • CARAMELIZED MISO-SESAME MAYO:
  • 1/2 cup white miso
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise
  • 3 Tbsp. toasted sesame oil
  • FOR ASSEMBLY:
  • 12 steamed buns
  • 2 Persian cucumbers, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • Scallions, sliced thin
  • Sriracha
  • Chili Sauce
  • Sesame seeds


  1. For Pork Belly, Preheat oven to 300°. Season pork belly with salt and the five spice powder using a touch of oil to coat. Create a pouch using aluminum foil. Lay sliced onion and garlic on the bottom followed by pork. Seal the pouch seam side up and roast on baking sheet until tender, 2 to 2 1/2 hours (you want the belly to be tender when punctured with a knife but not falling apart). Cool in pouch overnight in the refrigerator so the belly is firm enough to cut.

  2. For Caramelized Miso-Sesame Mayo, preheat oven to 400 °. Spread miso on a silpat lined rimmed baking sheet and bake until golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Place cooked miso in a blender along with brown sugar and a few tablespoons of water. Blend on high until smooth. Add mixture to a bowl and whisk in Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise and sesame oil.

  3. When ready to serve, slice chilled pork belly across into 1/2-inch thick slabs (they should look like thick bacon pieces), then slice each slice in half, or thirds if the belly is large. Heat a wok and sear pork belly on both sides, allowing to caramelize fully. Set aside.

  4. For Assembly, open buns and smear with Caramelized Miso-Sesame Mayo. Lay cucumber slices on the bottom, top with warm pork slices, scallions, and a squirt of Sriracha, chili sauce and sesame seeds (optional). Serve warm.
