Ingredients


1.3kg piece pork belly, boned, rind left on and scored (ask your butcher to do this)

2 tsp sunflower oil

1 tsp white peppercorns, crushed

2-3 tbsp maple syrup

2 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp red chili paste









Method


Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Lay the pork, skin-side up, on a rack in a roasting tin.

Trickle with a little oil, then lightly press on the crushed peppercorns and a sprinkling of coarse sea salt.

Place in the oven, then cook for 1 hr. Remove from the oven and baste with the juices. Continue to cook for a further 1½ hrs, basting every 20 mins.

Mix the maple syrup together with the cumin and chili, brush it over the pork, then increase the oven to 200C/fan 180C/ gas 6.

Cook for a further 30-40 mins, basting occasionally, until caramelised with a rich, golden glaze over the pork.

Once cooked and tender (this can be easily tested by piercing the flesh with a knife), remove pork from the oven, then leave to rest for 10-15 mins.

Carve pork into 6 portions, then serve on top of the onions. Pour any remaining liquor over and serve.
