Compliments of the Chef: Pork Belly Benedict from K Restaurant

Written by Scott Joseph on .

Pork Belly Benedict

I stopped in a few weeks ago to try K Restaurant's (now regularly scheduled) Sunday brunch. Previously, brunch was an every now and then thing, so it's nice to have a reliable standby.

It was also the first time I'd visited since the College Park restaurant got its full liquor license, so it was also nice to have a proper adult beverage with my brunch.

I sampled the Pork Belly Benedict, a take on the classic dish with pork belly instead of Canadian bacon and Southern style biscuits instead of English muffins. It was delicious.

And afterwards, I went into the kitchen and chef de cuisine Ryan McLaughlin showed me how he makes the yummy dish. He also agreed to share the recipe, which you'll find below.

Unfortunately, pastry chef Michelle Hulbert wouldn't part with her biscuit recipe, so you'll have to find one of your own (or see if you can buy a bag of them from the restaurant).

Take a look at the video, then give the recipe a try. For inspiration, stop by K and try the real deal.

K Restaurant is at 1710 Edgewater Drive, Orlando. Brunch is served Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The phone number is 407-872-2332.
