  • 2 tbsp Soy Sauce or Coconut Aminos
  • 2 strips Pork Belly
  • 6 tbsp Chopped Garlic
  • 1-2 Bay Leaves

  • Braise the Pork Belly in 100% pineapple juice and coconut, soy sauce, garlic, and bay leaves on a low simmer for 1-1.5 hours

  • Meanwhile, chill remaining coconut pork broth in fridge.
  • Remove pork belly from fridge and leave at room temperature for 30 min. Preheat air fryer to 400⁰F, then add pork belly and cook for 20-30 minutes until skin is crispy.

  • Meanwhile, remove soup from fridge and skim off excess fat layer on top.
  • Heat coconut pork to a boil then add greens. Cook for 1 min before turning off heat and serving.
