roasted pork belly with fennel seeds

roasted pork belly with fennel seeds

not vegan. roasted pork belly with fennel seeds, sea salt, and garlic, from the moro cookbook. the recipe is here, but i made a modification in cooking which yielded a successful crackling, and tender meat. instead of a blast of heat at the beginning of the roast, i started with a cooler (convection) oven (190c/375f/gas5), and roasted the meat for just slightly over an hour. i then raised the temperature to 230c/450f/gas 8, for a half hour or so, until the skin was deep brown and blistered. success!
