QWeekly - Roasted Porkie and me

I've been enjoying yummy roasted pork (xio ba) a lot these days cox bf and i have been making it at home. Like at least twice a week. My bf made them first time and it tasted so yummy that i had to learn how to do it.

Continuing the success of my aglio olio recipe, i shall share this roasted pork recipe with you cox it's REALLY simple and fuss free!

Things you need!

1. Salt (i'm using sea salt)
2. Preserved Soy Beans (Dao Jior)
3. Oyster Sauce (Hoy Xim sauce)
4. Slab(s) of pork belly

5. Sesame oil or normal oil - OPTIONAL
6. Hua Diao Jiu - OPTIONAL
7. Black Pepper - OPTIONAL

Lolol. Items 5 - 7 is my bf act pro go add one.

STEP 1: Mix oyster sauce, preserved beans and optional hua diao jiu together, crush the beans a bit.

STEP 2: After placing slab of pork on the mixture, sprinkle salt and optional pepper and drizzle oil on skin. Leave it there for at least 45 minutes.

At least 45 minutes later....
STEP 3: Poke the skin of the pork belly. Make sure you poke the whole skin surface area!
STEP 4: Bake at 220 degree celcius on top heat for 35-45 mins depending on size and thickness of pork belly, on a grilling tray.
STEP 5: Scrap off the black burnt part. Actually my bf hold wrongly for the picture. I think if you use the knife back and scrape it downwards direction it'd be easier. And you're done!!! =DDD
Tadang~~~ Juicy and yummy and the skin is OMG CRISPY!!!

Tell you all first okay, if you never poke the skin, it will be tough and rubbery very soon after taking it out from the oven. One time my bf forgot to poke it before baking it, the skin turn out really rubbery and hard. Thou the rest of the meat is still fine but roasted pork belly is all about the skin, agree?! =D

So yippie! Good luck on that! ^.^

Oh no need to ask me how much of what to add, i go by feeling one O.O Lololol. I'm an artist.

So that's all bye! Lol. Kidding~ How can i let you come here without getting a pixome!
