Lovely piece of pork, I ignored the instructions and cooked for 2 hours at 160 and then turned it up to 200 for another half an hour at the end. Ended up with gorgeous soft meat that pulled apart. Was tricky to get crackling to crisp up but stuck it under the grill and it was great!
Sliced strips of belly way in front, not again.
Fatty but not juicy, shrinks and the crackling is soft and rubbery, nice flavour in parts but harsh on the old gnashers, the Tesco belly in strips already sliced is much better. Bought twice now but will stick to Tesco strips.
This is the second of these joints that I've bought. The first one I had, when cooked, was very tough. I liked the idea of this joint so in case the one I'd had before was a one off, I purchased joint again and but unfortunately once again it was still tough.
The cooking instructions do not match the weight of this piece of meat - 700g. It was tough, overcooked and inedible. You need to look at the cooking instructions on the packaging.
Nice and tender, but when unpacked I saw it hadn't
Nice and tender, but when unpacked I saw it hadn't been scored - hence the dropped star. Check before you buy!
