Making a pork roast with crackling is really easy and is really worth the wait to get that delicious crispy crackling everyone at the table will be eyeing. Follow these easy tips to get the perfect crackling every time.
Once you remove the pork roast from its packaging, make sure to dry it thoroughly with paper towels. There is always moisture remaining behind in the packaging. That moisture will prevent the rind from going crispy in the oven. It is therefore always best to leave the pork uncovered for at least an hour. This will help dry out the rind. Another important tip is to score the rind at 2 cm intervals. Just be careful not to cut into the meat. Finally, ensure to rub the rind with oil and coarse sea salt. You really need to work the salt very well into the rind.
Just follow these easy steps and you will have a delicious, flavourful pork roast with crackling to serve with a variety of veggies. Don’t be surprised if this becomes a weekly Sunday meal to look forward to.
