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.
Having spotted some good looking pork loin all rolled up, I decided to give it a go in making pork roast myself. Scoring the skin, pouring some hot water over it, patting it REAL dry and then sprinkling it with generous amount of sea salt, olive oil and pepper.. I stuck it into the oven for a good 30 minutes on high 230C. Then I slow cooked it for another 1.5 hours before blasting it in the hot oven for another 45 minutes for a real crisp skin.
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.
