I’ve probably mentioned before that I love slow roasting stuff. Not only is the meat spoon tender but it’s just that much tastier – I think in general the cuts you use to slow roast are more flavoursome. Plus I’m a sucker for easy and slow roasting is easy. So no surprises this Christmas season that I decided to make slow roasted pork belly.
I plan to make this for Boxing Day to celebrate my birthday and make up for the lack of cooking that’s going to take place on Christmas day – my mother has enforced Christmas lunch at the local golf club, less stress apparently. My inner foodie struggled with this concept though and I demanded a rerun. The way I had envisioned Christmas this year was lounging out under my parent’s small orchard sipping on mint tinted icy beverages with my belly full of good food. I’m just going to have to make up for it by making Boxing Day a feast to remember!
