Spicy Marinated Pork Belly Hand Rolls
Today we’re reposting our Spicy Marinated Pork Belly Hand Rolls, because grilling season is basically here and these little guys are fantastic when the pork belly is cooked on the grill with a slight char! These make really yummy, unique and fun appetizers/party food and it’s always such a crowd pleaser. Memorial Day is at the end of the month and these would be perfect for a get together that weekend! Enjoy! xx, Jenny

Memorial day is in a couple of weeks and I’m already prepping my grill! I don’t know why, but I like to think of memorial day weekend is the unofficial start of grill season. This year, I’ve made it a goal to widen my overall grilling repertoire. Im going to do my best to try our rotisserie out more with fun and different cuts of meats, etc.

While I have all these plans for the grill this year, I like to start off with something simple, delicious and familiar. That brings me to these glorious little bites! These spicy marinated pork belly hand rolls are SO good and make a great appetizer for any get together. I love that they’re a great grab and go treat that don’t require any utensils. The marinade is a basic Korean style marinade that can be easily altered depending on your desired spice level.

If you’re looking for something a little different for your next get together, these spicy marinated pork belly hand rolls are callin’ your name….seriously. Enjoy! xx, Jenny

    I have never seen soy wrappers in my local store. Could a rice wrapper be subbed?

      I wouldn’t go with rice paper, I would do nori instead. The rice paper would totally work, but the soft texture would make them more like fresh spring rolls instead of hand rolls

    great idea, I’ve never grilled pork belly, what a wonderful flavor, I think, to add char to pork belly, also like the serving/appetizer here as a hand roll, thank you!

    Still my favorite recipe from you guys. This was the biggest hit at my barbecue a few years back.

    I have never used soy wrappers. Is it necessary to slightly grill them for this recipe, or used right out of the package?
