Gourmet Retailer of the Year Award 2022

Crispy Golden Pork Belly



  • 800-1.2kg Pork belly, skin on
  • 1 ½ tbsp Chinese cooking wine
  • 1 tsp Chinese 5 spice powder
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar (helps conduct heat evenly)
  • 200g rock salt
  1. Use an ice pick / sharp metal skewer or another tool to prick holes in the skin. Be careful not to pierce into the fat or flesh.
  2. Turn the pork belly upside down. Rub the flesh (not skin) with Chinese cooking wine, dribbling it on gradually.
  3. Sprinkle over the five-spice powder, salt and pepper. Rub all over the flesh (not skin)
  4. Turn right side up and place in a container. Deb skin dry with paper towels. Refrigerate uncovered for 12 hours (max 24 hours).
  5. Preheat oven to 180°C (all oven types).
  6. Remove pork from fridge. Place onto a large sheet of foil. Fold up sides of foil around the pork to enclose it snugly with a 1.5cm rim above the pork skin (to hold the salt in).
  7. Transfer pork to baking tray. Dab skin with paper towels.
  8. Brush skin with vinegar.
  9. Spread rock salt on the skin (the foil edges will stop it from falling down the sides).
  10. Roast for 60 minutes.
  11. Remove the pork from oven and transfer onto work surface.
  12. Switch to grill/ broiler on medium high. Move shelf so it is at least 25cm from the heat source.
  13. Fold down foil and scrape all the salt off the top and sides. Return pork only (without foil) to baking tray.
  14. Place under grill/ broiler for 20 – 25 minutes, rotating tray once, until skin is golden, crispy and puffed.
  15. Remove pork onto cutting board. Slice into 1-1.5cm thick slices, then into smaller slices like pictured in post or into squares.

About Ryan’s Grocery

Ryan’s Grocery is Singapore’s only full-service organic butchery and allergen-friendly specialist grocery store. The company’s journey began in July 2015 when founders Sebastian and Wendy Chia learnt of their son’s – Ryan – intolerance to gluten, dairy, nuts, soy, egg, and yeast. They searched local markets for products and produce, and even made personal trips internationally to look for a range of dietary items to support his needs.

It was then they saw a demand for such a specialty online grocery and Ryan’s Grocery was born. Ryan’s Grocery now services the local community, discerning shoppers and those with dietary intolerances with an all-inclusive range of organic meats from our specialty butchery, gluten-free products, and other related items with grocery delivery options.

In December 2019, the brand launched its first overseas flagship store in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Its flagship outlet in Singapore with ‘Ryan’s Grocery’ and ‘Ryan’s Kitchen’ opened in Great World in December 2020, spanning a total of 4,200 sq ft. In 2022, Ryan’s Grocery was awarded “Gourmet Retailer of the Year” and “Best Meat & Seafood Retailer” in Singapore by World Gourmet Summit & Tatler Asia respectively.
