Crispy Pork Belly

 

 

Ingredients:

1 Kg Pork Belly (Scored)

Marinade:

¼ tsp pepper powder

½ tsp fennel powder

¼ tsp garam masala powder or spice powder

¼ tsp ginger powder or ginger garlic paste 1 tsp

2 tsp Oyster Sauce

1/4 Cup Soy Sauce

2 tblsp Olive oil

½ tsp salt

¼ cup water

Method:

Mix the marinade in a deep tray or roasting dish. Score (cuts parallel or crisscross ) the Pork belly if not already done by the butcher( butcher will do this if requested). Wipe the skin dry with a paper towel to remove any moisture. Place the pork belly immersing only the meat part into the marinade and skin dry. Place in refrigerator overnight uncovered. The skin will become dry in the fridge.

Line a roasting dish with aluminium foil. Take another aluminium foil and place it inside the dish. Now cut out the core and slice an apple. Spread this on the foil. Slice an onion and spread on top of apple slices. Add some sage to the mixture. Sprinkle two tsp of fennel powder on this mixture. Now place the pork belly on top of this mixture. Pull the sides of the aluminium foil to cover the meat but not the skin. Spread two tsp of Olive oil on the skin and then cover it with salt.

Preheat the oven at 200 degrees for 15 minutes, then place the pork belly dish in the oven and bake for 2 hours. Reserve the marinade for sauce.  Put some water in the dish around the foil containing the pork belly. Continue adding water when it evaporates. After two hours, remove the dish from oven. Take the excess salt from the skin. Place it back in the oven but this time under the grill at 250 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes. This will make the skin crispy (crackling). Remove from oven, if it looks burnt, don’t worry only the salt would have burnt. Let it stand on a cutting board for 10 minutes. Scrape the burnt salt and also excess salt. Cut the pork belly to your required slice sizes.

Apple Sauce: In a vessel add the reserved marinade, the apple sauce from the aluminium foil and the water in the roasting dish. Add ½ tsp salt and boil for 5 minutes. Your sauce is ready.

Have your sliced pork belly with a little apple sauce spread on it.
