Pork Belly

There are probably very few food products in the world that can immediately produce blocked arteries and induce high blood pressure in their victims but pork belly is one of them. It is roughly two thirds fat and one third meat and when cooked well will transport you to gastronomic heaven.
It is tricky to get a balance bewteen moist tender meat and crispy skin but if you succeed you will never look at a pig the same way again. We have experimented with various cooking methods and this time we grilled them to try and get some of the skin crackled.



Serve with roasted potatoes and cauliflower cheese.

I know how delicious pork is cooked this way and no-one loves crackling more than I; however, I doubt my stomach could take such rich food any more. But oh my dog, it's insanely delicious.
