Roast crispy pork belly with egg fried rice
And I was particularly excited this sat as one of my all time favourite chef's Ken Hom was on!!
His recipe was Roast crispy pork belly with egg fried rice, which I cooked last night.
It was so easy but the results were fantastic! great flavours from the egg fried rice and the belly pork gorgeous.
I am not a fan of pork fat unless it's the crackling from a Sunday roast, but this was so tasty.
I think because you need to let the pork dry out for several hours once you have rubbed the warm spices into the skin, it gives an incredible flavour to the end result.
The piece of free range pork I used in the picture was just enough for two people.
It was about 2lbs in weight as you will get some shrinkage.
This recipe can be found on the BBC's food website, and I can highly recommend this simple but delicious meal.
