 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      3/4   lb           Belly of pork
      3/4   lb           Smoked bacon
    2       lb           Potatoes
      1/4   lb           Mushrooms
    1       t            Rosemary
    1       lb           Onions
      3/4   c            Stock
                         Salt and pepper
    2       oz           Butter
 
   (Irish pork belly has a fatty layer, vital for the flavor, and a meaty
   layer.  See if you can get your butcher to give you pork that has about
   equal amounts of pork and fat. Plain lean pork will not taste as good.) Cut
   meat into one-inch cubes. Peel and thinly slice potatoes. Peel or wipe
   mushrooms, and slice if large. Grease a large ovenproof dish with some of
   the butter, and place a layer of sliced potatoes in the bottom. Add half
   the meat pieces, seasoned and sprinkled with rosemary. Layer with half the
   vegetables, plus another layer of potatoes.  Repeat, using all meat, veg
   and potatoes.  Pour stock over and dot potatoes with remaining butter.
   Cover and cook in a moderate oven, 325F, for 2 1/4 hours. Uncover for the
   last half hour of cooking to brown the potatoes.
