Pork Belly Roast

Roast Pork Belly with crackling is one delicious meal and with its high-fat content it suits the Keto Diet perfectly. Cooking pork belly is much easier than you think!

If you find that the pork skin isn’t becoming as crispy as you would like, place it under the grill or broiler and keep an eye on it as it can burn quickly.

To reheat, add 2 tablespoons of butter to your frying pan. Then fry the slices on medium to high heat for 4 minutes on each side until it’s crispy and heated through.
