Pork belly & roasted potatoes

This is one of those days when inspiration doesn’t hit and you have to stay with what you know works. Pork belly and roasted potatoes are a classic dish, but when it comes to classics it’s all about the spices and seasoning you’re going to use to make them stand out. That’s what I did in this case, I used dark beer, honey and dijon mustard to marinade pork belly, and to get that delicious glaze over it when grilling on the outside grill. And roasted potatoes aren’t ordinary as well, garlic, turmeric and red paprika may seem like an unlikely combination, yet that combination comes as a lovely surprise of flavours.

Hope that you’ll give this recipe a try, and remember there are no boring classic dishes, it’s how you prepare them and give them a twist of your own, that will make them stand out!
