What's Cooking for Xmas

When I was in HK I bumped into one of my close friend and what you know,...I was cordially invited to her Xmas party...cool !

But what I was not aware, after a couple of beers.....I realized that actually I was the party so called chef...huh !!??? BBQ for thirty people ! Simple thing...sausage, chicken wings, pork ribs, baked potatoes, corn, grilled prawn and what else ?

It's Xmas...so let's stirred up something additional and unusual !Roast Pork and Kerabu Beehoon for a treat...

...check out the Roast Pork Recipe!...also check out kerabu beehoon recipe

Ingredients; Pork Belly, Five Spice, Parsley/Rosemary, Mixed Herbs, Garlic, Vinegar, Coarse Salt, Salt and Ground Black Pepper.

Make sure the pork is dry,...dry,...if not, you won't have a nice perfect crispy skin.

Mixed the Five Spice, Mixed Herbs, Parsley, Ground Black Pepper and Salt together,...rub evenly on the pork belly. With a small knife pierce bottom of the pork and gently force garlic slices into the cuts. Rub vinegar and coarse salt over the top of the pork.

Roll up and tie the pork belly. Bake in the preheat oven over the temperature of 230C for 60min to 75min.

Half way through turn the pork to ensure the skin cracks evenly (Haha...this step is only necessary if the oven is small and insufficient heat)

Once the roast pork is done, let it rest for 10min before slicing.

3kg Pork Belly
20g Garlic
10g Parsley
1tsp Salt
1tbsp Coarse Salt
1tsp Ground Black Pepper
2tsp Five Spice
2tsp Mixed Herbs
1tbsp Vinegar
