Apple and Onion Pork Belly (Pauper's Roast Pork)

Introduction

This is a stand-by favourite in my family - a great 'I am too tired to cook', low effort dish that tastes wonderful and looks after itself in the oven after a mere 5-10 minutes of kitchen time. Make sure your pork belly strips are lean - if they're too fatty you'll end up with a dish of rendered fat.

Ingredients

Serves: -

Metric Cups
  • 6 pork belly slices
  • 1 apple popper (100% juice in tetra pack)
  • 1 onion
  • 1 large green apples
  • 6 pork belly slices
  • 1 apple popper (100% juice in tetra pack)
  • 1 onion

Method

Apple and Onion Pork Belly (Pauper's Roast Pork) is a community recipe submitted by kgw and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Pre-heat oven to about 180-190. Cut apple and onion into slices (you can peel the apple if you want, but I can never be bothered).
  • Take a Pyrex/ovenproof dish and put the pork belly strips, "Crackling" side up (so they're standing in a row), stuffing the apple and onion slices in between to help them stand up. You'll need a fairly snug fitting dish. Squeeze contents of popper into the dish, so the meat is covered (but not the crackling).
  • Place in oven to cook; takes about an hour, which, by happy chance, is the exact amount of time baked potatoes in their jackets take to cook as well when bunged in the oven at the same time.
