Experiment with all different cuts of meat. Some people like to use Pork Belly with the rind still on. If you can't find rindless Pork Belly, ask your butcher to remove the rind or use a very sharp knife. You can also sprinkle some of the spices over the rind and make some crackling in a very hot oven!
Cook Ahead Tips:
If you are short on time you can steam the Pork Belly and keep in the fridge until ready to do the last steps when ready.
