Pork Belly in coconut milk.

Probably because raw meat is 70% moisture, so obviously you will lose a fair bit after cooking.
oops just saw this was an old post!

would this be ok, instead of normal milk. friend suggested it, but not too sure.

Korbo can you please report back how it went please!

Yes, it was absolutly delicious. you could taste the coconut just.
Hubby thought it was lovely, guess thats the main thing.
The peice fitted snuggly into a small roasting dish i have, but after 1.1/2hrs it had shrunk about 3inches in width.

why does our roast meat shrink so much.

too hot and too fast - this dish should be braised not roasted

Not only this dish, but any roast, lamb, pork or beef.
they all seem to shrink.
I only cook mine on 140-160, and boy did the leg of lamb on sunday shrink.

Check your oven for temperature and steam leaks try adding water to your roasting pan.Alternatively heat on high for first 20 mins turning the meat to seal the surfaces.
