Pork belly a la curry

Some regular viewers will remember I did a root vegetable soup not so long ago. Yesterday for those with memory problems. Today I had a pork belly joint to cook and left over soup to finish. What to do?

I rubbed Thai 7 Spice into the pork, with a little paprika and salt, and let it rest for about 20-30 minutes. Then into the oven (190c) for 70 mins.

I reheated the soup I had left, added tumeric, cumin, dried coriander and cayenne pepper. Let that cook out for about 30-40 mins and then added the juices from the pan of the resting pork and stirred.

I still have that other half for tomorrow. I think it'll be soup again tomorrow too, kinda over -bought on the veggie side!

I know, I know. It was terribly lazy of me not to wipe the bowl before pic taking. But in my defence I'm completely lazy :-P

PS the pork was actually quite moist, the pic doesn't really show it off...
