Lemon Herb Pork Spare Ribs “With Crackling” – Too Easy

Lemon Herb Pork Belly Spare Ribs Recipe
A unique way to cook Pork Belly Spare Ribs dripping with flavor seasoned with lemon and herb, baked in the oven for a crisp crackling.

This Lemon Pork Spare Ribs recipe is a little hack I came up with to get crispy crackling on the outside and more flavor in the meat than cooking as a whole pork belly.

The secret is to season the pork pieces and then push them together like one roast.

The pork spare ribs come out full of flavor with a crispy skin unlike cooking in a pan.

The Lemon Pork Spare Ribs recipe makes 2 servings. Leftover Pork can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days.
