Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Sticky Asian Pork Belly Noodle Salad

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6

Pat the pork belly dry with kitchen paper

Score the fatty side of the pork belly in a criss-cross pattern by drawing a sharp knife through the skin, deep enough to reach the meat below

Season with a very generous pinch of salt and rub it deep into the criss-cross pattern

2 Sticky Asian Pork Belly Noodle Salad

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a very high heat

Once very hot, add the pork belly, fat side down and cook for 4 min or until coloured and crispy, then flip and cook for 2 min on the other side 

Once done, transfer the pork to a tin foil lined baking tray and put the tray in the oven for 40 min

3 Sticky Asian Pork Belly Noodle Salad

Meanwhile, boil a kettle

Add the wholewheat noodles to a pot and cover with boiled water until fully submerged

Bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for 5-7 min or until tender with a slight bite, then drain and run under cold water until cooled

Once cooled, set aside for later

4 Sticky Asian Pork Belly Noodle Salad

Meanwhile, combine the chilli jam with 2 [4] soy sauce sachets (you'll use the rest later!) in a small bowl – this is your pork glaze

Bash the roasted peanuts with a rolling pin until they are finely crushed (keep them in the bag so you don't lose any!)

 

 

5 Sticky Asian Pork Belly Noodle Salad

Peel (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and finely chop (or grate) the ginger

Combine the chopped ginger, rice vinegar, remaining soy sauce, toasted sesame oil and 1 tsp [2 tsp] sugar – this is your dressing

6 Sticky Asian Pork Belly Noodle Salad

Rip the little gem[s] and chop the cucumber into rough, bite-sized pieces 

Trim, then slice the spring onion[s] finely

Top, tail, peel and grate the carrot[s]

Pick the coriander and mint leaves from the stalks and chop them roughly

Cut the red chilli[es] in half lengthways, de-seed (scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon) and chop into thin strips

 

7 Sticky Asian Pork Belly Noodle Salad

Add all of the above to a large salad bowl with the cooled noodles

Once the pork has had 40 min, remove the tray from the oven and spoon over the pork glaze

Sprinkle over the crushed peanuts and return the tray to the oven for 5-7 min (scrunch the foil edges up to stop the glaze escaping!)
