Total Time3 hrs 35 mins
Servings: 24 deviled eggs

Ingredients

Beer Braised Pork Belly

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 pound boneless pork belly
  • 2 large carrots chopped
  • 2 stalks of celery chopped
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • 1 bottle of beer I used a pilsner

Deviled Eggs

  • 1 dozen room temperature eggs
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • salt and black paper to taste
  • Garnishes: paprika freshly chopped parsley

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, salt, black pepper, and crushed red pepper. Rub the mixture all over the pork belly, pressing it in to adhere. Set aside.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large oven-safe dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the pork belly and sear it on all sides until brown, about 15 minutes total. Add the carrots, celery, garlic and beer. Season with salt and place i in the oven, uncovered. Bake for about 2 hours or until the pork belly is tender.
  • Remove the pork belly from oven and then let it rest for 15 minutes before cutting it into small pieces. Set aside or refrigerate until you are ready to use.
  • Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add the eggs, and cook for 12-14 minutes for hard-boiled eggs. Remove from heat and transfer the eggs immediately to an ice bath to cool down quickly. Once cool, peel the eggs and slice them in half, lengthwise. Scoop out the yolks into a medium bowl.
  • To the bowl with the egg yolks, stir in the mayo, mustard, paprika, cayenne, salt, and black pepper. Stir and fold the ingredients together until smooth and creamy.
  • Scoop the filling into each egg and top with a small piece of pork belly. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and paprika. Serve immediately or place the eggs in the refrigerator, covered, until you are ready to serve.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

For the hard boiled eggs, the time will vary depending on where you live. We live at 7500 feet, so water boils at a much lower temperature here (about 198 instead of 212) and takes much longer for eggs to get to a hard-boiled state. I would use your best judgement when boiling eggs, and if you have a tried and true recipe, use that one.
