Cooking time: 30 minutes
- 1kg boneless pork belly
- 1 Tbsp sea salt
- 1 Tbsp olive oil

- Place the pork belly onto the tray, close the drawer and select the Ribs icon. Use the +/- icon to increase the default temperature to (200°C) and the cooking time to 20 minutes and press start.
- After 20 minutes, reduce the temperature to (160°C) and cook for a further 10 minutes or until the internal temperature of the pork reads (60°C) on a kitchen thermometer.
- Allow the pork to rest for 10 minutes before slicing into portions. Serve with a fresh crispy slaw and enjoy!
