Honey and Sweet Mustard Pork Belly

Cooking Directions

Serves: 4

Place all the ingredients in a saucepan, except for the root vegetables and glaze. Bring to the boil.

Immediately reduce the heat to a very low simmer for 2 hours until the meat is tender and soft. Take out of the liquid and, when cool, remove the rind. Do not take off too much of the fat.

Pre heat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4.

Mix together the glaze. Put the root vegetables in a roasting tray and drizzle with a little oil. Put the pork belly on top of the vegetables and brush with the glaze. Roast for approximately 30 mins, basting regularly with the Sweet Mustard Ketchup and honey mixture.

Share out the vegetables between 4 plates with slices of pork belly on top and serve with a spoonful of mustard mash.
