  • 700 grams pork belly cut into strips, seasoned with salt and pepper, dredged in flour and fried until golden with a crisp coating
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 large onion sliced into rings
  • 3 tomatoes roughly chopped
  • 1 to 1-1/2 cups corn kernels (if using fresh or frozen, pre-cook in a minimal amount of lightly salted water then drain well)
  • 12 large large sweet basil leaves thinly sliced
  • leaves from one small sprig of oregano
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste


  • Heat the cooking oil in a frying pan. Add the onion rings and tomatoes cook just until a bit softened.
  • Add the corn, basil and oregano. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, just until heated through.
  • Add the pork, cook over high heat, tossing often, just until the pork is heated through.
  • Off the fire, adjust the seasonings, as needed. Serve the crispy fried pork with corn, tomatoes and basil at once.
