Prep time 25 min
Cooking time 5 hours
• 350g pork bell
• 70g butter
• 125ml teriyaki sauce ( I like Kikkoman)
• 1 clove garlic, diced finely
• 1 small piece of ginger (1cmx1cm) grated
• Pork Rub of your choice
• 1 cup rice
• 1 spring onion
• Cut the pork belly in to 2-3cm wide strips and rub down the pork with the pork rub.
• Put the pork in a grill basket over a very smokey fire with the ambient temperature at about 100deg (or around 6 seconds of holding your hand there) for around 2 hours, flipping every 30min to ensure it cooks evenly.
• Once the pork looks and feels cooked, place it over a medium/high heat skin side down to create crackling, then check it every 30-45 seconds to ensure it doesn’t burn. Remove when the skin is a medium brown with crispy bubbles on it.
• Wrap the meat in aluminium foil with the butter, 100ml of teriyaki sauce, ginger and garlic. Ensure the sauce doesn’t leak and put back over a medium heat for a further 2 hours or until very tender.
• Serve with rice, a bit of extra teriyaki sauce and spring onion garnish
