Place pork belly slices on an unheated deep pan or pot in a single layer. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and pour ½ cup water. Turn on the heat to medium and just let it simmer without stirring until water evaporates and renders fat. Once oil comes out, stir from time to time to even out the browning. Let it cook until golden and very crispy.
