Crispy Pork Belly with Roast Veggies

Ingredients

1 Cut of Pork Belly
Salt or salt flakes
Cooking Oil
Potatoes
Pumpkin
Zucchini.
Optional Salad:
Assorted Salad Leaves
Dry roasted Pine Nuts
Tomatoes
Gorgonzola or Blue Cheese
Balsamic glaze

Method

Carefully slice some cuts into the rind of the pork belly. Boil a jug of water and pour over the rind (use the sink to avoid mess). Use a paper towel to dry the pork then coat with  oil. Cover the rind with salt or salt flakes and rub it in - both the rind and the cracks. Add another layer of salt then place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Leave uncovered for 30mins to make sure the rind is dried out (put in the fridge in hotter climates).
Place the tray on the top shelf of your MAX RACK and bake on full for 20 mins to crisp up that crackling. Reduce the gas to ‘low’ and place a tray on the lower shelf to stop the bottom of the roast burning and distribute the heat evenly. Cut up some potatoes, pumpkin, zucchini or whatever veggies you want to roast and coat them with a little oil. After 20 minutes cooking time you can add the veggies onto that bottom tray, keeping the gas on low.
Turn the potatoes after 15mins but leave the pork in position. (depending on your BBQ, you may need to rotate the tray but no need to turn it over). Another 15-20 minutes and you're ready to serve you succulent roast pork belly with crispy crackling and roast veggies!
You can also serve with a delicious salad - try using assorted leaves, dry roasted pine nuts, tomatoes , gorgonzola or blue cheese chunks and some balsamic glaze - easy and awesome!
