How to get Crackling to Crackle

As the winter draws to a close, we have been enjoying one of our favourite meals, a Pork Belly Roast. It took me awhile to perfect the art of getting the Crackling to Crackle but this winter....I got it right!

Here's how........

  • Pork Belly Roast
  • Sea Salt
  • Vegetables of your choice

  1. Preheat Oven to 180 degrees
  2. If it has not been done by the butcher already, make some scores in the fat about 1-2 cm apart and rub in some sea salt.
  3. Place to Pork in an oven proof dish and roast for 60 minutes (may need a bit longer if its a big cut of meat).
  4. After 60 mins, take the meat out of the oven, remove form the dish and place your chosen vegetables in the dish so that they cook in the meat juices
  5. Place everything back into the oven for 45 mins, tossing the vegetables every-so-often so that they cook evenly
  6. For the final 10-15 mins, turn up the heat to 220 degrees until the fat starts to form bubbles and turn really crispy.
  7. Enjoy!
