Streaky pork makes the sweetest and juiciest roast of pork; make sure to buy it with the skin on to get the crackling.


  • 1 × 5 lbs (2.3 kg) joint of streaky pork


Score the skin at ¼ inch (5 mm) intervals—let your butcher do this if possible because the skin is quite tough. (This will also make it easier to carve later.) Rub in the herb paste.
