After transferring to Kuala Lumpur with my husband, what I miss most is the taste of Taiwan’s hometown. , I seldom cook Taiwanese cuisine in Taiwan. After I came to Malaysia, I thought about how to satisfy my Taiwanese stomach every day.
What I want to share with you today is the crispy roast pork roasted with pork belly.
I have seen many ways on the Internet, such as poking pig skin or adding baking soda powder, etc.; but because poking pig skin is really tiring, I gave up after trying it once!
Here I would like to share with you a super simple and practical method. As long as there is an oven at home, even a novice cook can make crispy pork skin with super crispy pork skin.
First, prepare a piece of pork belly with skin, and adjust the marinade according to your favorite taste.
I use the spice salt bought at Costco to lightly rub a layer on the pork, or you can drop a few drops of cooking rice wine to remove the fishy smell, and the marinating step is completed.
Next, wrap the pork belly around the pork belly with parchment paper, leaving the pork skin side up and not wrapping it, exposing the pork skin.
Remember! The part of the pig’s skin should be completely exposed, this step is the key to success!
Next, put the pork belly with exposed pork skin in the refrigerator for two to three days and let the pork skin air dry. When the skin of the pork skin becomes as hard as a stone, there will be a sound when you tap the skin with your fingers, and you are ready to bake.
First preheat the oven at 200°C for 10 minutes, put in the dried pork belly with pork skin (skin side up) and bake for 20 to 30 minutes, you can eat the whole skin burst, invincible crispy Crispy Char Siew!
The step of air-drying the pig skin is the key. Remember to let the pig skin air dry to the point where you can make a delicious crispy char siu when you tap it with your fingers.
If the pork is too large, you can also put it in the refrigerator to air dry for a day. The drier and harder the skin, the crispier and crispier the skin of the crispy barbecued pork will be!
This little method I love to share with you, those who love crispy roast pork, come and try it now!
