roast pickled pork

My butcher put me on to this. He asked me how I did my pickled pork and I told him my slow cooker trick. He advised me to try it baked like a ham. So I did, and here she is! It was lovely. Definitely would be a brilliant twist to a traditional Christmas ham, and it will be better on the purse strings too. Give it a go, it is beautiful!

Ingredients

One whole pickled pork round (2Kg or so)

Olive oil

Water

Salt

 

Method

Place a half cup of water in a baking dish. Place the pickled pork in the dish, drizzle with olive oil and season heavily with salt. Roast at 160 degrees Celsius for about 2.5 hours. At about the half way mark spoon the liquid in the pan on top of the pork. Serve with vegetables or keep for later. I portion mine and we have it with vegetables one night and then as a pizza topping over the weekend.

Soft sweet pork

I am a believer that leftovers should be utilised! This recipe is for leftover roast pork, but you could use any meat you liked. It is a good one as the elderly like it because it is soft, and the young like it because the sultanas and apples make it sweet! I love it because it is delicious and easy!!

 

Ingredients

500g leftover roast pork, sliced

A handful of sultanas

A handful of chopped parsley

1 ½ cups cooked rice

2 tsp smoked paprika

¾ cup vegetable stock

Dash apple cider vinegar

4 apples, diced

2 tsp caster sugar

Water

 

Method

Place the apple, caster sugar and a dash of water in a saucepan and let it simmer for ten minutes. Add everything else, combining things well. Keep on a low heat and stir every now and then for twenty minutes. Serve with steamed vegetables or on its own! This is a great dish, enjoy!
