I bought some pork belly yesterday and I was just about to cook it when I saw thick hair on it. I tried to cut it with a sharp serrated knife but it didn't budge. I was really put off an put the pork back in the refrigerator. Can someone please save my pork belly and let me know how to get rid of the hair?
If you have a blow torch or a brûlée torch, just burn the hairs off.
If this is not an option, I've heard that you can use a normal safety razor. In this case I would definitely choose a razor without a lubricating strip along the top.
