Pork Belly Chinese

Leave a comment

I do eat things other than pork but looking at the blog lately, you would be wondering. This was actually a dish that I made some weeks ago; I have just been incredibly unmotivated to do the actual work necessary to post it (how lazy can I be?)

Anyway, pork belly slices were on special when I went into the store, coincidentally I now have a freezer full of them.

Pork Belly Chinese

8x Pork belly slices – about 2 per person
2 to 3 tsps Chinese five spice
1 to 2 tsps depending on taste Chilli flakes
2 cloves Garlic
3 Tbls Soy sauce
3 Tbls Honey

Place the pork belly in the baking tray and season with the five spice and chilli flakes.
Add the garlic, soy and honey and make sure the meat is well coated in the mixture.
Cover with tin foil and leave to marinade for as long as you can.
Cook in a preheated oven at 160C for 1-1½ hours. Turn occasionally if you want.
Turn the oven up to 210°C
Remove the tin foil and drizzle with another tablespoon of honey if you want them extra sticky.
Return to the oven for another 20-30 minutes.

40, on my way to 40 something...Still not sure what I want to do when I grow up, retire probably... Food obsessed, love to cook it, read about it, eat it... Chock full of useless information that crowds out the useful stuff sometimes.
