RECIPE: Paleo Crispy Pork Belly

Delicious crispy free range pork belly - perfect for the Paleo diet

1 kg or 2 lbs pork belly (get the butcher to score it!)

2 cloves garlic crushed

1/4 cup macadamia oil

1 tbs. pink Himalayan salt (and extra)

1 tbs. ground coriander

1 tbs. dried thyme leaves

1 tbs. paprika

1 tsp. onion powder

1 tsp. chilli powder

  1. Preheat the oven to 220*C.
  2. In a small bowl combine all the herbs, spices and garlic.
  3. Place the pork belly skin side up in a greased roasting pan.
  4. Pour over half the oil and season really well with salt.
  5. Sprinkle the spice mix over and rub it in to the pork skin, make sure you get the spice mix into those scores!
  6. Pour over the remaining oil and season with a little extra salt.
  7. Place the pork into the oven for 20 minutes, watch that skin puff and crisp up!
  8. Turn down the oven to 160*C and cook for a further 1 hour.
  9. If the skin isn't quite crisp enough (boohoo!) place under a hot grill for 5-10 minutes.
  10. Allow the pork to rest for 10 minutes before cutting and serving
