This has to be the easiest way to cook pork.
Juicy tender meat and crispy pork skin or crackling as we call it in the UK.
Firstly you need good quality pork, the best you can afford. I bought this joint from a local butcher that uses locally sourced meat.
Then, you need a slower cooker or crock pot and and oven. I use a @Crock-Pot
Let’s get going.
First you need to remove the skin from your pork. I used pork shoulder. If you don’t feel comfortable taking the skin off, ask your butcher where you buy the meat.
Season you pork. Place large frying pan on the hob and get it hot. Now, sear your pork in the hot pan. Don’t be tempted to add oil. Sear the pork all over. You’re not cooking it, your just browning the outside.
Once you have done that, pop it in the slower cooker turn it on and leave it until its tender and falling apart.
Turn your attention the crackling. Turn on your oven and you want it HOT.
Score the skin, but don’t cut all the way through it. Season.
Place it in a rack over a tray in the oven and let it cook until its nice and crisp. Keep an eye on it though. You don’t want to burn it and create a smoke filled kitchen.
And that is it.
Check out my short for a top roast potato tip, these go beautifully with the pork.
