Method
  • Preheat the oven to 230°C
  • Prick skin of pork all over with a sharp knife (the more holes, the crispier the skin). Place pork, skin side up, in a colander and pour a kettleful of boiling water over skin. Dry pork well with paper towel.
  • Rub pork with plenty of salt, pepper, spices and sugar
  • Place pork skin side down on the rack of a roasting pan. Half-fill pan with water (to reduce smoke) and roast for 30 minutes. Turn and roast for a further 30 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to 180°C and cook for another 1-1.5 hours. Crackling should be golden and puffy, and sound hollow when tapped.
  • Allow meat to rest for at least 20 minutes, carve and serve with Asian greens, soy sauce and steamed rice
