On many occasion i have tried many ways to perfect this recipe. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. But, i found using air fryer increase the chances to success.
Choosing a good quality pork belly is quite important too.If the skin is too thin, it will never crispy. The idea is to get a slightly thick pork belly.
The ingredients to make this pork belly are too simple, only about 5 ingredients. But, the hard work will be the poking.You really need to spend more time poking the holes. Poke as many holes as possible but try not to penetrate too deep, stay near the skin.
Every time i make this, my family will finish it off in second.
Hopefully, you’ll enjoy this recipe.
