1

kg

pork belly, skin on

3

tbsp

fine sea salt

1

tbsp

light soy sauce

1

tbsp

five-spice powder

2

tbsp

garlic powder

1

- Wash pork belly under cool running water. Pat dry.

2

- Score the skin with a sharp knife, making a diamond pattern.

3

- Rub the meat side of the pork belly with light soy sauce.

4

- Combine 1 tbsp sea salt, five-spice powder and 1 tbsp garlic powder together and rub the meat side of the pork.

5

- Rub remaining salt and garlic powder into the skin side of the pork.

6

- Set on rack in a roasting pan or a cookie sheet. Place in a cool spot or in the fridge and allow to dry at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.

7

- Preheat oven to 350F. Roast at least 30 minutes or until the meat is cooked.

8

- Turn the oven to broil and continue roasting until the skin is crispy. Remember to keep a watchful eye on it so it does not burn and to turn on your hood and open the windows. It will probably get smoky.

9

- Remove from oven and allow to rest 10 - 15 minutes before slicing. Serve with rice and a soy chilli dipping sauce or hoisin sauce if desired.
