  1. Prepare Pork Belly:
    • Pat the pork belly dry with paper towels. Score the skin side of the pork belly with a sharp knife, making shallow cuts.
  2. Marinate Pork Belly:
    • In a bowl, mix together soy sauce, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, five-spice powder, garlic powder, black pepper, and salt to create the marinade.

  5. Air Fry:
    • Air fry the pork belly at 375°F (190°C) for 20-25 minutes, or until the skin is crispy and the internal temperature reaches 160°F (71°C).
  6. Optional Broil (for Extra Crispiness):
    • If desired, transfer the pork belly to a preheated oven on broil for 1-2 minutes to achieve an extra crispy skin. Keep a close eye to prevent burning.
