The instruction how to make Pork belly with apple cider gravy

  2. Preheat the oven to 140C. Place the pork in a large flameproof roasting pan and roast for 2 1/2 hours. Add apple and fennel, and baste with the pan juices.
  3. Increase heat to 220C and roast for a further 30 minutes or until the skin is crisp, the meat is tender and the apple and fennel are soft. Remove from the pan and rest for 20 minutes.
  4. For the gravy, drain all but 2 tablespoons fat from the roasting pan, reserving the pan juices, and place over low heat. Stir in the flour, then add stock, cider and thyme. Simmer, stirring, for 6-8 minutes until thick. Slice the pork and serve with apple, fennel and cider gravy.
