Crackling has to be one of the best things known to man.
This recipe takes a cheaper cut of pork, and cooks for plenty of time so it becomes moist and succulent on the inside, and creates the perfect crackling on top!
Served with vegetables and an apple mash, this is one dish you won't want to miss.
preheat an oven to 160°C.
place the pork belly on a board and score the skin into the fat, but not as far as the meat about 1cm apart.
massage the salt into the skin and leave for half an hour in fridge.
take pork out of fridge and pat dry with a kitchen towel to remove salt and water that’s been drawn out.
put the chopped vegetables into a deep roasting tray with the herbs, crumbled stock cube and plenty of boiling water to half fill the tin.
place the pork into the tin so the skin it sticking out of the stock and cook for about 2 hours until the meat is tender.
