    Followed the recipe, no crackling . So I put it back in for another 35 mins at 240dg Celsius and still only cracking around the edges. Not sure what went wrong

    Turned out as expected...really perfect crispy skin! The marinade was okay, I made a dipping sauce because it wasn’t flavorful enough for my liking even though I marinated it overnight.

    It turned out well. Next time I will cook longer to allow salt to truly crust so it will be easily removed

    Delicious!! My small oven only goes to 435 so skin wasn’t as crispy as I like but it was still so good. And instead of the brown sugar or garlic I used five spice. My family devoured it. So good!

    Excellent but we now cook it 60 mins. With the salt and also 55/60 mins on the second go round.

    Ohhhhh yeaahhh! This, indeed, has been my best result so far with the pork belly. I'm so happy I finally got the entire skin to be crispy. Thanks so much for this technique. The family was very happy eating it. Our friends are calling and asking for the recipe and... perhaps some leftovers? Lol I didn't use the Chinese marinade. I dried it up by itself in the fridge overnight, and then only spread the salt on top before cooking. I served it with some gnocchi with homemade marinara sauce, grana padano, and sautéed spinach.

    This recipe is pure pork belly/crisp skin heaven! This was my first time cooking pork belly ever and it was AMAZING! The skin is so crunchy and not gummy at all and the meat is so tender and flavorful. This is to die for. The only thing is that I already had my pork marinated when I found this recipe. I used oregano, orange juice, pepper, some salt and some goya seasoning. 2 days passed before I could make the recipe and it was worth it. lOOOVED IT!

    I have cooked pork belly so many times in so many ways, trying to get the crackle to crackle was entertaining... one time we had to open all the doors and windows and move outside until the smoke cleared the house..! I have to say I am going to cook this recipie forever!!!!!! Tasty meat crunchy crackle and no smoke or mess. Oh and my dinner guests loved it and one of them never ever eats pork or YUK crackle. She is still raving about it and her husband took home the leftovers for his lunch next day. So Thank you my search for the perfect belly is now over.
