Honey Roast Pork Belly Strips with Anise

Nigel Slater used ribs for this brilliant recipe of his, Honey Roast Ribs with Star Anise.

But I didn't have any and was desperate to make it, so instead I used boneless pork belly strips and the end result was amazing.

Honey Roast Pork Belly Strips

I chose quite lean belly slices since some can be a lot fattier but that said, most of the fat seemed to disappear during cooking and they just melted in your mouth.

If you're thinking they look burnt, they wasn't but I can see you could easily burn them towards the end of cooking so you need to keep an eye on them. Mine took 20 minutes less than Nigel Slater's recipe.

  1. That looks delicious. You could enter it for Dish of the Month with a chance to win a copy of Real Fast Food, we'd love to have it included.

  2. It is not often that I allow myself such decadent morsels of meat. But, if I go to H-Mart soon, I may just try this recipe your way. These images are perfection. They beckon me to eat one or two or perhaps even three.

  3. OOh love Nigel Slaters recipes. Nothing 'poncey' just nice do-able dishes. Im making this for lunch today with roasted root veg. Thanks for the recipe.
