Roast Pork

What inspired me to do this...!?

...coz the roast pork seller is charging me RM10 for a strip of roast pork !...Ridiculous !

For RM20+,....I got this !

...1kg of pork belly...I can feed 5 person at least. Very simple to do...not tedious at all, all you need to do an oven ! Not microwave oven..ok !

The most important thing when preparing a roast pork is how to have a perfect crispy crackling roasted skin....and I have xplore from few chefs. Each of them have different methods....!

Lesson no 1, I've learned, after rinse the pork belly you need to make sure that it's super dry.

Lesson no 2, poke the surface of pork belly skin so that the skin will be able to crack.

Lesson no 3, rub some vineger on the skin.

....if not, you will not have a perfect crispy crackling roasted skin.

Then give the pork belly a body rub with Salt, Five Spice Powder, Pepper, and Coarse Salt on top the skin. Optional, garlic if you want to....!

Pre-heat the oven for 10min at 200°C. Lay the pork belly into the oven with skin facing up.

Let it roast for 30min, then take out the pork and remove the coarse salt. Place it back into the oven and roast for another 25min at 220°C. 

Let it rest for 10-15min before slicing the roast pork
