31 pork belly recipes to see you through those crackling cravings

You won't regret it.

How to make the perfect roast pork
Pork belly proves the golden rule that all good things come in threes. Here, it's the yielding pork flesh, a thin layer of gelatinous fat, and the crisp-snap of that pork crackling. Pork belly benefits from slow, patient cooking – the porchetta alla Ariccia (Ariccian-style roast pork belly), babi guling (Balinese roast pork) and Mike McEnearney's guide to roast pork will be welcome at your dinner table. If it's a braise you seek, you could do worse than Kylie Kwong's take on sweet and sour pork with Davidson's plum, Victor Liong's masterstock-braised meats with tofu, or Tony Tan's rich and savoury braised pork belly with soy sauce.
