Some love it with crackling so go for a portion that has enough fat and rind. The parts that are suitable for roasting include rolled loin, shoulder, leg and rack. If you do like crackling then go for rindless portion which can be pork scotch fillet. Remember the cuts have less fat so they are much healthy to eat.
It is important to store it in the coldest portion of the refrigerator if you are not planning to cook it for 2 days. Place it in sealable bag or in an airtight container. Place the pork for 24 to 48 hours to thaw it well. Now preheat the oven to 200 degree Celsius to make the rind crisp. Then you can reduce the temperature to cook the meat properly.
To make the pork juicy, cook it in medium flame. Cover the meat with a foil and allow it to settle down for about 10 minutes before carving it. This helps to make the meat tender and juicy.
Instructions for crisp cracking
You need to brush the rind with oil and sprinkle salt on it. Then roast the pork. When it is cooked well remove the rind and leave the meat to rest for a while. Now it is time to place the rind on pre-heated grill until the crackling puffs and becomes crispy.
