6 Hour Slow Roasted Pork

Once again I’ve succumbed to a Jamie recipe. I can’t really envisage roasting a joint without first consulting either Jamie or Delia, it just makes me feel more secure in what I’m doing. No doubt I’ll be able to wean myself off them in the fullness of time but for now I’m going to keep them around as my … Continue reading

Jim’s Garlic Pork Loin Steaks

This was supposed to be something completely different, until I realised I had the wrong ingredients in the house, read on and see how easily you can avert a disaster with a quick Google search and a bit of creativity. Pernil is a Puerto Rican dish that is usually a slow roasted joint of pork … Continue reading

Crisp Cider Braised Pork Belly

I had my parents coming over for Sunday lunch this weekend and so I wanted to do something a bit special. My Dad’s always telling me how he struggles to get pork juicy so what else could I do but a nice piece of crispy pork belly. Also, I didn’t want to be cooking for … Continue reading

Pork Loin with Orange Sauce

I found out this week that pork is the world’s most used protein which initially shocked me but then I thought about bacon, all the different sausages, prosciutto ham, parma ham, shu mai, etc, etc… There’s loads! This time I’m going with one of my favourite cuts of pork, the loin and I’m trying something … Continue reading

Pork Saltimbocca

Saltimbocca is an Italian word which means “jump in the mouth” and if you’ve ever tried the dish you’ll understand why it’s called that. The original recipe calls for veal and I have no problem with eating veal but I couldn’t get any on the day I needed it and so I substituted the veal … Continue reading

Lomo Adobado (Pork Loin in Adobo)

Continuing my little experiment with traditional Spanish foods I came across this pork recipe which, by all accounts, is an absolute staple in Spanish households. I’ve seen a number of recipes for this dish but I thought I’d go for the simplest I could find and I found it in the Spanish food section of … Continue reading

Spice Crusted Pork Chops with Bean Sprout Salad

I got this recipe from a Californian website called Metro: My Grocer. I was interested in doing something with a crust, we had some pork chops in the fridge so it made sense. You can find the original recipe here. We had a mate of mine round who’s a big eater so I just cooked … Continue reading

Pork Loin with White Wine Mustard Sauce

I’m definitely still looking at sauces a lot more at the moment and I’m surprised at how effective some of these really simple recipes are. I can’t believe that I was once ‘afraid’ of trying to cook a sauce… So last week I went for a red wine sauce with balsamic vinegar and lots of … Continue reading

Pork Loin Steak topped with Apple and Blue Cheese with Sautéed Cabbage

This is a recipe that I came across on the BBC Food website. It was put on there by Hazel Aubery-Wade who I know very little about. I can tell you this, she knows a good pork recipe and there are 3 of her recipes in total on the site, one starter, one main and … Continue reading

Jim’s Pulled Pork

This wasn’t what I had planned for yesterday. I was going to go for The Curry Guy’s Goan Pork Vindaloo but I didn’t have nearly the right ingredients and no chance to get out to buy them (I do have a ‘proper’ job you know) so I had to improvise or it was going to … Continue reading
