A recipe allowed in a / / / diet.

Pork belly is marvelously layered with meat and fat, but thanks to that, you need to be careful and cook it properly. If you want to make sure it’s well done, boil it before you roast it. Then cook it slowly, until it develops a wonderful crust and serve it with a twist: orange marmalade.
