This special season calls for a special dish. Pork belly is our absolute favourite! And there are many ways to cook this versatile cut of meat, with roasting being our first pick! Who can resist good old crispy siobak skin right?
This time we decided to play dress-up a little and give it an Xmas twist! We began by rolling up the pork belly and tying it into segments using a butcher’s twine. By doing this, the Siobak is divided nicely into serving portions. Coupled with honey roasted apples which is infused with soy sauce, dijon mustard and five spice to cut through the porky grease. This will leave you CRAVING for MORE!
Merry Christmas everyone and share all your wonderful cooking with all your loved ones!!
