Denmark is one of the world’s largest producers of pork. Danes often opt for the pork fillet, a part of the loin just below the neck that has a fatty skin cape on top. “It can be difficult to cook the skin until crispy without overcooking and drying out the meat,” says Copenhagen chef Niclas Grønhøj Møller, whose restaurant, Spisehuset, is located in the city’s Meatpacking District. His quick and easy technique for cooking the two separately yields high-crunch cracklings and tender, juicy pork that’s lightly pink in the center. If you can’t find a skin-on loin, purchase about 10 ounces of pork skin (with the fat intact) separately from your butcher.
