The Au-Chews roast some pork belly!!

ok this is another really overdue post.. but in March this year, I decided to attempt roasting some sio ak (pork belly).  I can’t remember why I wanted to (this is why i need to blog about it when it is still fresh) but i think it was just on whim really. So after scouring the internet for a few recipes, I used the recipe from Noobcook which is my usual go to recipe site.  The woman who writes the site always manages to make seemingly complicated recipes so simple to follow.  Like seriously, other sio bak recipes have so many steps it just makes a noob like me afraid to try. 

The only thing i would do different from this recipe is to get THIS torture device to prick the skin rather than use a satay stick. This is much faster.. 20130825_180318

Let the meat rest before slicing it.
