Roast Pork: Two Homemade Recipes


My friend JL ‘s  Roast Pork Recipe:

  • 3 lbs  ( 五花腩)pork ; fattest  portion.
  • Use 四季雞粉 (1 bag) — A special chicken broth  mixture or powder.
Cooking directions
  • Rub the powder to the meat only.
  • Cover with foil except the skin.
  • Put into refrigerator for 3 days
  • Put into the oven, 450 F for half an hour .
  • Unwrap the foil. Pour away the juice,
  • Cool down after 15 min.

My sister LM’s Roast Pork Recipe:

  • Same as above.

Cooking Directions

  • Clean the meat and dry it well.
  • Rub the powder to the meat only.
  • Make sure that the meat is real dry before the next step.
  • Put into the  refrigerator one night before cooking.
  • Before baking, rub the skin with vinegar several times.
  • Bake 400 F x 50 to 55 mins.
  •  broil for a few seconds.  Watch the meat to make sure that it won’t burn.
  • You will see that the skin puffed up.  Take it out.
  • Let it cool down. Cut into pieces. and serve.
  • Yum!

My sister said adding the vinegar to the skin makes the skin pop and crispy.  These two photos were her first experiment. She had tried several times and modified the recipe to this one as posted.

Readers should try out the two different recipes and experiment with each. You may find something different from your experience as well.

I got these two recipes a while ago.  I didn’t post it because i wanted to try it out myself first.  The reason why I suddenly posted this one last night, was in response to a fellow blogger’s recent post on Spicy Crackling Pork Appetizer.

    1. OK, I have made changes to the recipes to further clarify. Last night, i quickly copied from the notes written on my iPhone. Please see the revised version. The 四季雞粉 is rubbed into the meat only, not the skin. My sister added vinegar to the skin. See the revised recipe.
