Un Fu Kupable Asian Pork Belly

Grill & BBQ


Serves 6

  1. Mix Chinese five spice, sweet Thai chilli sauce, soy sauce and seasoning in a plastic bag. Add the pork belly and marinate overnight
  2. Preheat oven/BBQ to 170°C. Take pork out of plastic bag and place on oven tray
  3. Roast/Indirect grill pork for 30 minutes
  4. Mix Hoisin sauce with food colouring and brush over pork
  5. Continue roasting/BBQing for 15 minutes. Then turn pork and brush the coloured Hoisin mixture over the other side
  6. Continue for another 15 minutes
  7. Total roasting/grilling time is 60 minutes


This is perfect with rice but udon or hokkien noodles are pretty good with it too. For veg, chop up a cucumber and sit it in salted water for a few minutes, then drain and serve with the pork belly slices.

Take a photo of your masterpiece, whack it on our facebook page and you could very well be NZPork’s Man of the Month. And then all kinds of wonderful things will happen to you.

Setting the stupid table.

Laps are not tables. So don't even bother.

Choosing utensils is no time to innovate – stick with the classics – knives, forks, etc..

Turn the telly off. Turning your head at a 180 degree angle whilst chewing makes digestion problematic.

Get the table sorted before you cook. Otherwise your genius creation will sit there, going cold.

Washing the damn dishes.

It sucks. There's no getting around it.

But leaving it to others will undo all the good work you've done.

So harden up, and put those rubber gloves on baby. Yes, the pink ones.

No-one likes a one hit wonder.

The true test of a man, or a cook, is the ability to follow up. So make your pork dinners a routine, and man o man, will you in for some treats.
