Homemade Chinese Roast Pork Belly

Roast Belly Pork

This is so simple to make.  All you need is a good cut of pork belly (approx 1kg for 4 -6 people).  To guarantee amazing cracklings, cover the skin with salt.  Then place the meat on a rack and into a deep tray.   Pour approx 1/3 of water into the tray and put into the oven (fan) at 180C for approx 30 mins. When the salt starts to form a crust, take the meat out and remove the crust.   Top up water if necessary.  Place the meat back into the oven and then turn it up to 230C for another 20 mins.  Once cooked take it out of the oven and rest for about 15 minutes. I normally cut the pork (skin side down) into small bite size pieces with a chopper.  I serve this with plain boiled rice, steamed vegetables and sweet chilli sauce or soya sauce.  So easy and my kids love it.
