“HERE IS MY RECIPE FOR THE MOST DELICIOUS PORK BELLY.
Take a nice thick pork belly and have it scored in squares or thin strips – this will make the carving easier when cooked.
Pre-heat the oven 180˚ C.
Using medium coarse salt and white pepper, season on both sides – be generous with the salt.
Place half a cup of water in the roasting pan, this prevents the belly getting stuck to the pan and burning.
Place in the middle of the oven and roast for about 2 to 3 hours depending on the size and thickness of you piece of meat.
The top should be beautifully brown and the crackling fit for a king.
I like to serve it with a butternut puree and seasonal vegetables.
And of course, a glass of MURATIE GEORGE PAUL CANITZ PINOT NOIR.”
