Pork Belly is the piece of flesh that runs around the "belly" of the pig and surrounds the stomach. It is NOT the stomach. It is one long cut of meat with plenty of fat worked into the meat, which is why it is prized for curing and turning into bacon or pancetta. This is where BACON comes from. How about that?
