        H-Mart only has slices as far as I know. It's also origin unknown ;-).

            I got a boneless 7.5 lb slab a couple of weeks ago. Do not know its provenance, but it was good.

              Ruprecht, where did you find that?

                H-Mart Cambridge. They cut it for me while I waited, but I'd recommend calling ahead.

            I wouldn't expect this to be "the best" but we've tried it a couple of times liked it and for the money $5, ease to find and cooking convenience it can't be beat:

              If there was pork belly listed somewhere in that flyer I couldn't find it. Could you elaborate?

                it looks pre-cooked on the image.

                  Never mind - the link didn't work on my tablet. Fully cooked pork belly?

                  It's not bad at all, cut a couple slices off, brown and ready to eat. The price is now up to $6.50.

                  oh and not berkshire or pastured, but have gotten excellent quality at puritan meats on blackstone st. any size you want. skin-on or -off.

                    I once got a rotten one at Puritan (perhaps an anomoly for sure, so I wouldn't say steer clear yet), and was told it's wise to ask for them to cut it for you (as opposed to what's in the case out front) to insure freshness.....just an fyi, other than that though, the price is right
