You've heard this one before I can hear you groan! Yes, pork belly has been done to death. But in my opinion it's a fantastic, if not better, alternative to the usual Sunday roast and at £3.99 per kg it can't be ignored - it's the perfect comfort food to comfort us during recession. The twice cooking method does take some time (overnight) and it will need attention but the results are truly amazing.
Hi, a 1.2kg piece (without the bone) should be no more than £5.50, otherwise your butcher is a bad butcher! You can get from sainsburys for around this price. Paul - 18 Jan 2010
This sounds interesting. Not sure if the pork belly would have the bones in it or not. Is it easy to bone yourself? When I ordered a piece from the butchers and asked him to bone it, thinking it was a "cheap joint" I was surprised how much it cost. - 16 Jan 2010
