We're starting with the classic pork belly with crunchy crackling. This has a clever but simple method that keeps the meat so soft and melting, renders the fat but then crisps up the crackling perfectly so that you can hear that crunch!

2 - Kakuni Japanese Pork Belly

I LOVE Kakuni! It is a Japanese simmered pork belly, slow cooked so you get the most delicious melt-in-the-mouth pork flavoured with ginger. You don't have to go to a Japanese restaurant for this - it's so simple to make at home too!

3 - Pork Belly and Apple Pie

I'm a little obsessed with making things in a rice cooker and this ginger pork belly is a meal in one - there's even rice and boiled eggs in this Asian flavoured pork belly and all you have to do is add everything into the rice cooker and let it do its thing!
