Crisp eisbein

Crisp eisbein...

Crisp Eisbein This is the easiest way to cook eisbein. It removes some of the fat, cooks it through and you have control over the crackling and the crackling is what it is all about after all 🙂 Ever since I had eisbein at a restaurant near the Randburg magistrates court, I have tried to get that same tenderness in the meat and the crisp crackling and think this eisbein recipe is pretty close. Update 2017: I have been...
Boerewors the traditional way

Boerewors the traditional way...

Sometimes only a boerewors roll will satisfy the hunger! If you have ever been driving around and racked your brain for the location of that guy making boerie rolls outside the supermarket or the butcher in the middle of the day and have traveled about 10km to find one, then you know you are a born and bred South African! The rest of you may not quite understand the simple pleasure of biting down on a boerewors roll but...

Sticky Pork Ribs

Sticky Pork Ribs...

Ribs are an absolute favourite of mine. To me nothing compares to ribs that have great flavour and tender enough to fall off the bone when you bite down. These ribs have all the elements that make a great rib. It is sticky, chewy, sweet and sour with a hint of the orient. The flavours come out even stronger if the ribs are left overnight in the sticky marinade. This recipe serves 4-6 and takes 1 hour in the oven. What...
Ginger beer braised pork belly with crunchy crackling

Ginger beer braised pork belly with crunchy crackl...

I don’t often cook Pork but this recipe is so easy and so tasty I made it twice last week to feed the masses. If you need something that doesn’t use a lot of pots and have no time to spend in the kitchen then this is the one for you. The whole preparation takes less than 5 minutes and then you forget about it for 3-4 hours. A lot of the fat dissolves when cooking, I was amazed at how little was left. This will feed...

Delicious Spicy Pork with Chorico This Mediterranean style stew was really fantastic and you could use any spicy sausage if you don’t have chorico, even a good pork sausage would do the trick, just add a little paprika into the mix.

Mixed mince meatloaf

Mixed mince meatloaf...

Mixed mince meat loaf The mixture of pork and beef with a hint of sage in this meatloaf recipe is something quite marvelous. I am a big fan of meatloaf, it’s cheap, makes a great easy dinner and is fantastic on sandwiches. It’s really important to use extra lean mince especially with the pork and to keep it nice and moist either put a bowl of water in the oven when cooking it or put the loaf tin in a roasting...

Quiche with a potato crust

Quiche with a potato crust...

Potato crust quiche I came across this interesting idea on for the love of cooking blog and just had to try it! Pastry for whatever reason is not a favorite of mine to make so when the idea to use potato slices as a base for a quiche came along, it was like a godsend. It turned out like a gourmet potato bake with wonderful crisped up edges and is on my all time favorite list from now on. (4 people easily) I used a 29cm...

Sweet and sour pork

Sweet and sour pork...

Sweet and sour pork Sweet and sour pork with this homemade sweet and sour sauce is just fantastic. I often have sweet and sour pork at Chinese restaurans but prefer strips of meat as opposed to cubes which seem to be most popular in Chinese retstaurants. The meat is thinner,  more tender and is cooked in hot oil which makes the batter crisp. (2 servings on it’s own or 4 servings with another dish like the lemon...
