Ingredients

  • 1kg Belly Pork
  • salt
  • Olive oil

Method

  • STEP 1
    Score the pork belly using a very sharp knife. Lay the pork, skin-side up, on a rack in a roasting tin. Rub with oil and scatter with salt. This process helps the fat run out and the skin to crisp. Transfer to a heated oven.
  • STEP 2
    Cook at 180C/ fan 160C/ gas 4 for 2 hours 15 minutes then turn up the oven to to 200C/fan 180C/ gas 6 for a further 35 minutes to crisp the crackling.
  • STEP 3
    Once cooked and tender (this can be easily tested by piercing the flesh with a knife), remove pork from the oven, then leave to rest for 10-15 minutes before carving.
