1.3kg piece boned pork belly, skin on and scored, ask the butcher for the thin end

2 tsp Chinese five-spice powder

For the dipping sauce

4 tbsp soy free seasoning sauce

small knob fresh root ginger, grated

1 tbsp Thai sweet chili sauce - click here for recipe

1 scallions, finely chopped green end only

Serves - 4


Rub the pork with the five-spice and 2 tsp sea salt then leave, uncovered, in the fridge for at least 2 hrs, but preferably overnight. When ready to cook, heat oven to its maximum setting.

Lay the pork on a rack over a roasting tin, making sure the skin is exposed.

Roast for 10 mins before turning down the heat to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4, then leave to cook for a further 1½ hrs.

Have a look at the pork – if the skin isn’t crisp, turn up the heat to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7, then cook for another 30 mins until crisp. Leave to rest on a board for at least 10 mins.

To make the dipping sauce, mix all the ingredients together with 2 tbsp water.

Cut the pork into small pieces, then serve with the sauce, plus boiled rice and steamed greens, if you like.
