No. of servings: 5 pax

Preparation Time: 8 hrs | Cook Time: 2hrs| Total Time: 10 hrs


  • 1.5kg pork belly
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp five spice powder
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper

Cooking Direction

Step 1: Cook the pork belly in water

  • In a large wok, heat up water. Place the pork belly into the boiling water and cook it for 20 – 30 mins until meat is fully cooked.
  • Remove pork belly from water and place it on a kitchen towel. Pat dry.
  • Using a fork/skewer, prick skin all over, making small holes that just puncture the surface. The more holes there are, the crispier it gets.

Step 2: Marinate the pork

  • Mix salt, five spice powder and pepper into a bowl.
  • Rub the marinade thoroughly onto the pork, but not on the skin.
  • Leave the pork aside uncovered and skin side facing up. Let it marinate in the chiller overnight.

Step 3: Roast the pork

  • Preheat the oven to 180OC. Place the meat, skin down, on the wire rack. Below the meat, place a tray to collect the excess oil that drips from the meat. Roast it for 1.5 hrs.
  • Remove the wire rack and tray with oil dripping from the oven. Brush the oil dripping onto the skin.
  • With the skin facing upwards, grill it for another 10 – 20 mins.
  • Remove from oven, and the dish is ready to serve!
