  • Skillet (cast iron is best) with lid
  • Tongs/fork for stirring
  • Paper towels


  • 1 pkg fresh side pork
  • Dash salt optional


  • Preheat skillet. Lay strips evenly over skillet. Keep the heat at medium-high until the skillet is hot and the meat begins to cook. Once the fat starts to render, turn down to medium/medium-low heat.
  • Stir the meat, so it cooks evenly. (You may need to continue adjusting the heat up and down, depending on your stovetop, pan, etc.)
  • Once the side pork is brown and crispy to your liking, remove from pan and drain on paper towels. Serve immediately.
  • Save grease and pan for future use (if desired).
