  • 1 boneless pork belly (around 800 g)
  • 3 t miso paste
  • 3 t Sichuan pepper oil
  • 3 T honey, warmed
  • 3 t chopped chives
  • 50 g oyster mushrooms, sliced
  • Fresh lemon juice, to taste

Preheat the oven to 140°C.

Submerge the base of a deep roasting pan in warm water and place a roasting rack on top.

Using a sharp knife, score the skin and fat of the pork belly, then rub the miso paste and Sichuan pepper oil all over the belly. Roast for 90 minutes to 2 hours, or until the meat is tender and the skin crisp and golden.

Slice the pork into serving size pieces and dress with honey, chives, oyster mushrooms and lemon juice, to taste
