When it comes to Roasted pork – the Chinese version is always my benchmark. I am a great fan of “Siew Pai” – Roast Pork Belly.
Benchmark of a perfect Roast Pork Belly is a real crisp with the right amount of salt infused marinate. Chef of this “Siew Pai” spent a great deal of time to poke the Pork Belly skin with a special nail type of hammer to poke whole so that when it is grill the heat will penetrate and make the skin very crispy and crunchy. Moreover this method will extract out the fats layer making the pork belly more succulent and tasty.
The version serves here is slightly different and it comes with the sweet caramelized sauce which was served with the meat. Frankly speaking, I would have preferred the sauce to be served as a special dip instead of spreading onto the meat. This makes the skin to be a little softer and causes the skin to lose the crisp and crunch which turn off a great dish.
