    Completely changed the way I thought of Chinese roast pork. The salt crust is the key. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars. My family is from Southeast Asia, so lots of friends, relatives and many of my favorite local restaurants make roast pork, but invariably the rind turns out tough or chewy. Another huge gripe I have is the pork itself being under-cooked — often the meat (or even worse: the fat) is chewy and unpalatable. The fatty layers should be rendered and the meat should be fork tender, melt-in-your-mouth. This recipe was the first one I tried that fixes ALL of those problems, and it fixes them without stupid black magic like piercing the skin a million times, basting with vinegar every 10 minutes, scalding with hot water, boiling, charring and scraping, scoring, hairdryers, etc. With this recipe, I'm sure almost anyone can make great roast pork that beats standard restaurant quality ... unless you live in Hong Kong.
