Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.

Score the skin of the belly and rub the ribs with olive oil and seasoning.

Place in a large oven safe roasting tray, cover and roast for 3 hours at 150 degrees Celsius.

Parboil the potatoes for 6 minutes and drain. Set aside.

For the green sauce; place the chopped herbs with lemon juice, olive oil and garlic in a pestle and mortar and grind it up until combined. Set aside.

After roasting time, remove the lid and leave the pork to crisp up, about 15 minutes – you can set the oven to 180 degrees Celsius for this. Be sure to check it regularly.

Remove the meat form the roasting dish, add the potatoes – to roast in the pork fat - and roast for 20 minutes.

Remove from oven, turn the potatoes over and add the honey – be sure to cover the potatoes.

Roast for another 15 minutes until sweet and sticky.

Serve crispy pork belly ribs with green sauce and potatoes.
