    Default Pork belly recipes?

    Hello everyone

    Just after a really good pork belly recipe?

    I've only cooked one before and it wasn't that great it had star anise in it and neither myself or dp were big fans, so if you've got a recipe you swear by please let me know!

    if you don't like star anise you can omit it from the recipe, but still have an 'asain/bbq/sticky' kind of flavour it. Or you can do it plain like a normal roast?

    this is a great blog that explains how to cook the meat and get the best crackle.

    http://www.atablefortwo.com.au/2010/...3%A7%E8%82%89/

    When I do my crackle I do the same boiling water thing - but I also add lemon juice and salt.

    Yeah I'm not sure if the star anise was wrong because I used too much or what, but it was definitely over powering!
    Will try the tips on that site though

    the link doesn't have any suggestion for a marinate, it just shows you how to cook the crackle and meat.

    if you want an asain flavoured marinate you could combine
    -soy
    -rice wine vinegar
    -honey/sugar
    -hoi sin (or if you don't have you could use normal bbq sauce not quite as nice but ok still)
    -a bit of chinese 5 spice
