Pork Belly recipe to die for:

1 x Pork Belly, approx 1.5kg (I prefer bone-in, so mine was just over 2kg, for the flavour)
1 tbsp Sichuan peppercorns
1 tsp black peppercorns
2 tbsp Maldon sea salt
2 tsp five spice powder
2 tsp caster sugar
Pak Choi in oyster sauce, to serve
Steamed rice, to serve

Score the pork skin with a sharp knife at 1cm intervals. A stanley knife is the best tool for this job. Alternatively, you can spike the skin all over with a sharp needle. Boil a kettle of water and pour it over the skin of the pork. Leave to drain.

Dry roastthe two types of pepper in a large pan until they smell aromatic. Add these to a spice grinder and grind to a powder before mixing with the salt & five spice.

Dry the pork off completely with some kitchen paper. Flip it over so it's flesh side-up. Rub the aromatic spice rub all over the meat, but not the skin. Make sure to rub it on the sides too.

It's best to let it sit for a few hours, to allow the flavours to permeate. When you're ready to roast the pork, preheat the oven to 230 degrees. Roast the pork for 30 minutes at the high temperature.

Reduce the heat to 160 degrees and roast the pork for 30 minutes for every 500g of meat
