    • Then add water (just enough to cover the meat), spring onions, tamarind and pork belly. Season with salt and pepper.
    • Boil the belly until soft. Remove from the broth and let the water drop from the meat for about an hour.
    • Place pork in a roasting pan and roast pork in a preheated 350 °F oven, skin side up until the meat is cooked and skin is crispy or until the desired doneness is achieved.
    • Place on a plate then serve.
