Nothing tastes better than tender pork belly with sticky barbecue sauce. Grill it for a perfect finish, then pile into buns and serve with coleslaw and fries


500g pork belly slices

For the BBQ sauce:
4 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp light brown sugar
1 tbsp cider vinegar
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tsp English mustard
1 clove garlic, crushed


Heat the oven to 320F/fan 285/gas. Dry the belly slices with kitchen paper, then season with salt and pepper. Mix together the ingredients for the sauce and toss the slices in the sauce in a roasting tin. Cover tightly with foil and roast for 1hr 30 mins, until completely tender.

Remove the foil and turn the grill to its highest setting. Grill the meat for 3-4 mins, turning it halfway and brushing over the sauce from the tin, until the sauce is thick and sticky and the slices are charred. Alternatively, put the braised slices on the barbecue and baste in the sauce from the roasting pan as they sizzle away. Serve on buns with coleslaw.
