We tried making the ultimate pork belly in our Air Fryer – it was ready in less than 30min & will be perfect for Xmas | The Sun

FOR foodies, Christmas is all about indulging in heaps of hearty dishes – and what better way to celebrate the festive season than with a juicy pork belly.

But as much as we love the dish, preparing pork belly can also be time-consuming – luckily, there is an easy way to speed up the process.

A group of foodies, from Australia, claimed you can make the festive classic in less than half an hour using an air fryer.

The step-by-step recipe was shared on TikTok and the team at Fabulous will definitely be giving it a go over Christmas.

According to taste.com.au (@taste.com.au), all you need is some pork belly, salt, oil spray, a few apples, as well as all the necessary ingredients for the festive glaze.

As demonstrated in the video, start by rubbing salt into the meat – do this to your taste.

Once done, chuck it into your air fryer before spraying oil on top and cooking it at 200C for 25 minutes.

This, the Aussies said, will ''get the crackling going''.

If you're a fan of sweet apples to go with the meat, place four – or as many as you want – inside and cook for another minutes (but reduce the temperature to 160C).

Whilst these are cooking, prepare the glaze – for this, you will need to mix maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, sugar, mustard and mixed spice.
