Pork Belly Buns

Pork Belly Buns

There are times that I want to be lazy but still eat good quality food. This is why bottled marinades are so important! Marion’s Kitchen was so sweet to send me a set of their marinades and sauces to try out. I have been wanting to make my own grilled pork belly buns for a while now and the marinade helped cut down on prep time. It was so simple: put pork belly in a ziplock bag, pour on marinade, let sit in fridge for at least 10 minutes (or overnight), cut, sear, put inside a bun, and eat.

These sauces and marinades are amazing. Made with all natural ingredients, gluten free, non-GMO, and no artificial flavors or colors. The sauces are delicious and we’ve been putting it on top of so many different things. The Coconut Sweet Chili has been my favorite. It packs a lot of heat and flavor but it’s creamy. I’ve been using it in place of ranch. We had broccoli and cheddar tater tots and I dipped mine in the Coconut Sweet Chili Sauce. Ah-may-zing.
