Thank you #Lionfresh for delivering this delicious chunk of pork belly within 2 hours of ordering online - the quality , packing , everything was superb . This was my second attempt at making Pork Belly and wow - how delicious it was !
Score the fat side of pork belly with evenly spaced full length cuts - 1/5th " deep.Coarsely pound all the above ingredients and rub nicely into the pork belly - leave covered to marinate 4-5 hours or overnight .
Heat up a pan , without oil place pork belly fat side down to sear - maybe 5 minutes.Remove and place pork belly in a dutch oven along with all fat and marinade .Bake covered at 160C for one hour , turn over baste with juices , add 60 Ml white wine , cover and bake another 30 minutes at 140C. Rest the meat 20 minutes and dig in , it will melt in your mouth !
