Budget-Friendly Pork Belly

This is the part of the pig and is also used for bacon. And it is what covers the ribs. I’m not saying you should have this daily but I am saying this is a keeper. Throw a load of veg in and in my eyes, this is a balanced plate of food.

Also when you have meat that’s so tasty a little really goes a long way. I love everything stir-fried and this is no different. It really does tick all the boxes for family-friendly budget stir fry. It allows you to stretch your meals to meet your family’s needs. Recipes such as these are tasty and satisfying which I think is a key component to enjoying the process of making food at home.
