  • 1.5 kg Skin-on pork belly
  • 1 piece Large pan with boiling water
  • 1 kg rock salt

Crispy pork belly rub

  • 1 part Fine salt
  • 1 part Paprika powder
  • 1/2 part curry powder
  • 1/8 part onion powder
  • 1/8 part garlic powder
  • 1/8 part ginger powder
  • 1/8 part black pepper


  • Puncture the skin with a mechanical tenderizer, a sharp knife, or an awl.
  • Hold the pork belly above the boiling pan of water and spoon hot water over the skin for 10 minutes.
  • Take a non-Ferro tray and make a layer of rock salt and lay the pork belly skin down in the salt. Place the tray in the fridge overnight.
  • The next day you brush off the rock salt and mix all the ingredients for the rub. Sprinkle the rub in an even and thick layer on the meat of the pork belly.
  • Prepare your grill with a temperature of 190°C (375F). Lay the pork belly skin on in your grill and close the lid. Let the meat cook till the skin is crispy and the meat is cooked.
  • Let the pork belly rest for a few minutes and dig in!
