Oriental dry cure?

The oriental dry cure was based on this salt cure recipe by Dick and James Strawbridge. I wrote a post about their awesome book over here where you can read on how to use a dry cure. I played with the spices to get a complete new rub. It’s heavy in flavor but I like it this way. I will share a Babi Panggang recipe where I cured a small piece of pork belly for 2 hrs. bringing a delicious taste! You need to check it out.


Have fun experimenting with this dry cure! I’m looking forward to see your results at social media so don’t forget to tag me! Tonight the Babi Panggang will be shared. Meanwhile let’s take some time to chat in comments below or on Facebook!
