@instantpotsa Vortex Airfryer
700g-1kg pork belly
2 tsp of salt
1/2 cup sweet and sour sauce
Score the rind of the pork belly with a sharp knife.
Rub salt into the skin, ensuring it goes into the scores. Set aside for ten minutes.
Place pork belly in the air fryer basket skin-side up and air fry at 160°C for 45 minutes.
Check it to see whether the crackling is done to your liking and prevent burning.
Once the pork belly is roasted to perfection, slice it and baste with the sauce and air fry it for a further 3 minutes. Remove it from the air fryer and cover with aluminium foil to rest for ten minutes. Serve!
