Preparation Time: 10 mins day before + 15 mins Cooking Time: 120 mins Serving: 6

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp Chinese five spice powder
  • 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp annatto paste (natural red food colouring)
  • 1kg boneless pork belly, skin scored
  • Thai basil leaves
  • Rice
  • Black pepper caramel
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 200ml fish sauce
  • 1 long red chilli, sliced
  • 2 1/4 cups (500g) caster sugar
  • 2 tbs mixed peppercorns

Instructions:

  1. Combine five spice, oil, annatto paste & 2 tsp salt in bowl, mix & then rub over pork belly skin. Place pork on a wire rack set over a baking tray and refrigerate, uncovered, overnight to dry out the skin.
  2. Following day, preheat oven to 220°C. Pat pork skin dry with paper towel, then roast for 45 minutes or until skin is starting to crisp. Reduce heat to 160°C and cook for a further 45 minutes or until meat is tender and skin is crisp. Take out and rest.
  3. Meanwhile, for the black pepper caramel, combine the lime juice, fish sauce, chilli & 2 tbs water in a bowl and set aside. Place the sugar, peppercorns & 2 cups (500ml) water in a saucepan over high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes or until a deep golden colour. Remove from heat & carefully add fish sauce mixture. Swirl to combine.
  4. Place pork in an ovenproof ceramic dish & pour over caramel. Return to oven & bake for a further 5-10 minutes until golden & warmed through.


Note: Serve with Rice & top with Thai basil leaves.
