Ingredients:

  • Pork belly slices, about 1.5 cm thick
  • Indonesian Pig Roast Spice Blend

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Pork Belly: Pat the pork belly slices dry with kitchen paper.
  2. Season the Pork Belly: Generously rub the Indonesian Pig Roast Spice Blend into both sides of the pork belly slices.
  3. Preheat the BBQ: Preheat your BBQ to a medium-high heat, around 180°C to 200°C, ready for direct grilling.
  4. Grill the Pork Belly: Place the pork belly slices directly on the grill. Grill for about 5-7 minutes on each side, until the fat renders and the slices are golden brown and crispy.
  5. Monitor and Turn: Keep an eye on the slices as they cook, turning them occasionally to prevent burning and to ensure an even char.
  6. Rest and Serve: Once the pork belly is cooked and has a nice char on the outside, transfer it to a plate and let it rest for a few minutes before serving. This allows the juices to redistribute, ensuring the meat is succulent and tender.

Ingredients:

  • Pork belly slices, about 1.5 cm thick
  • Indonesian Pig Roast Spice Blend

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 160°C.
  2. Prepare the Pork Belly: Pat the pork belly slices dry with kitchen paper.
  3. Season the Pork Belly: Generously rub the Indonesian Pig Roast Spice Blend into both sides of the pork belly slices.
  4. Arrange the Pork Belly: Place the seasoned pork belly slices on a wire rack over a baking tray. This setup allows the heat to circulate around the pork belly slices, cooking them evenly.
  5. Slow Cook: Cook in the preheated oven for 2 hours. This low and slow cooking method will render the fat gradually, ensuring that the pork belly slices become tender and are infused thoroughly with the spice blend flavors.
  6. Finish for Crispiness: If you desire a crispier finish, increase the oven temperature to 200°C during the last 10-15 minutes of cooking to crisp up the exterior of the pork belly slices.
  7. Rest and Serve: Allow the pork belly slices to rest for a few minutes after removing them from the oven before serving. This resting period helps in retaining the juices within the meat, making it more flavorful and tender.
