Pork Belly With Crackling

Your friends and family will come running when you make this pork belly with crackling. I make this recipe about one a month and our guests are always asking when we will be serving this one again.

A lot of the recipes I make are not overly complicated and do not have a lot of ingredients. You will want to be sure to score the entire pork belly with an exacto knife in a diamond pattern. This will allow the fat underneath the skin to rise to the surface and drain.

The secret is cooking the pork belly at a low temperature and then finishing the pork belly on a high temperature. This will ensure the meat in tender and skin is extra crispy.

The sauce on the side is a must. The sweet sauce goes perfect with the pork. If you have any questions about this recipe please let me know.
