Select only local fresh Aussie Pork Belly to make sure your family are eating the finest quality.
Tip: Do not let the stock near the rind, use less! You only want the pork belly to be half submerged in the stock.
When you purchase your Aussie farmed pork belly from MidWest Meats, the rind is scored by our professional butchers and it's ready for roasting!
