Pistachio-crusted pork with roasted peaches


You'll need

1 kg piece of pork belly 2 tbsp olive oil 4 yellow peaches, halved, stones removed To serve: frisée salad (optional)   Pistachio crust 140 gm (1 cup) pistachios, coarsely chopped 70 gm (1 cup) coarse fresh breadcrumbs Finely grated rind of 1 lemon 1 garlic clove, crushed 1 tsp mustard powder

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 150C. Place pork in a 3-litre baking dish, drizzle with olive oil, season to taste and roast until very tender (3 hours). Remove pork skin (discard) and set pork aside.
  • 02
  • For pistachio crust, increase oven to 190C. Combine ingredients in a bowl with enough juices (at least 1 tbsp) from the base of the baking dish to allow the crust to stay together, then press onto pork belly. Add peach halves to baking dish, then return to oven and roast until crust is golden and crisp and peaches are tender (15-20 minutes).
  • 03
  • Serve pork belly and roasted peaches drizzled with juices from the baking dish, along with a simply dressed frisée salad.
