Hey /cocks/ im making a roast pork belly for xmas dinner but I've never really worked with the ingredient before. Im looking for tips from people who have used pork belly before as well as some suggestions for sides. My plan is to roast the whole belly with the skin on using fennel seed, garlic, oregano and star anise. Hopefully it will come out like pic related.

Do you prefer /pussies/?

Get the skin DRY. As in leave it sitting open in the fridge overnight dry.

i have had success using the lemon juice method and a slow roast to get a crisp rather than chewy crackling

Be sure you generously score the surface of the skin, the more time you take doing that the more crispy deliciousness will follow. Be sure you salt liberally, and maybe include a sweet element in your spice mixture (honey, black strap molasses, sourgum)

Thanks for the tip. I will definitely try that. I've also heard that rubbing the skin with baking soda helps to crisp it up but I'm worried it might impart a chalky flavor.

more like meme belly

Never heard of the lemon juice method. I'll check it out thanks.

I plan to score the skin as well as prick it with a small nail. Pork goes great with sweet flavors so I will definitely use your suggestion thanks!

somethin like this
http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/775672/slowroast-rolled-pork-belly-

there are plenty of techniques for getting crispy skin...this was one that worked consistently for me

i do agree with the other poster about getting the skin dry......as in not just straight from the vacpac packet

Slice it up, marinate it, and make korean spicy pork.

Check seriouseats for the porchetta recipe that your OP comes from.

I haven't tried it myself but it looks promising.

Also like others said, make sure the skin is bone dry.

I've used this recipe and have been very happy with the results. You can probably do whatevs for the marinade, but the salt really works like a mother fucker for crispy skinz. Good luck opie.
