I'm so excited to share this with you. I made roast pork with CRACKLING! I know!! Proper crispy crackling. I have always thought that roast pork with crackling is difficult to do, but having do some research, I realised it's not too difficult but just time consuming.
The result was so worth it. The pork was tender, the skin was crispy. I think we found our favourite roast dinner now!
1.8 kg of pork loin roast
heaps of olive oil
Preheat Oven 230 C.
Score the skin. Pour hot water over it. Pat very dry with paper towels. Season with generous amount of olive oil, salt and pepper on the skin and meat. Roll and tie it up with kitchen string.
Stick in a hot oven for 30 minutes. Remove and season with a little more olive oil. Reduce heat to 170C for around 1 hr to 1 hr 30 minutes.
For the last 30mins -45 minutes, increase heat til 230 C. See the skin crack!! Enjoy with vegetables.
