Heat a thick bottomed frying pan then brush with a little oil. Lay the pork belly slices side by side and cook over very high heat until browned on both sides.
Sprinkle the pork with salt and pepper.
Pour in the balsamic vinegar and simple syrup. Stir.
Add about a quarter cup of water.
Lower the heat, cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes until the pork is done and the liquid is almost dry.
