The Secret To A Perfect Pork Crackling Joint

The Secret To A Perfect Pork Crackling Joint

Here is my secret to a perfect pork crackling joint. For any of you who wonder how it's done follow this simple recipe for perfect results every time.

  1. My first tip is to source good quality pork then the night before cooking, store uncovered in the fridge, this will allow the skin to dry out. Before roasting allow the joint to stand at room temperature for an hour.
  2. Pre-heat your oven to 220℃ / gas mark 7, place the pork onto a rack inside a large roasting tin, drizzle with a little oil then rub in a liberal amount of salt. Roast for 25-30 minutes before reducing the heat to 180℃ / gas mark 4. Calculate the remaining cooking time by allowing 30 minutes per 500g. If the crackling is going too dark cover with a piece of foil, alternatively if you like darker crackling you can crank the heat back up to 220℃ / gas mark 7 for the last 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave to rest under a piece of foil for 20-30 minutes.
