Pork Belly. The fatty skin allows you to make great crackling. The maple syrup brings an interesting sweetness that goes well with pork. And the apple cider vinegar gives just a touch of acidity to balance it all out.
A good piece of pork belly should be meaty, with smaller layers of fat. You could stew or braise pork belly, but roasting it this way is also quite effective, and provides crackling to those who enjoy it!
