101 ways to cook pork - Sat, 02/2/13 12:20 PM
0
I though it would be a great idea to post some pork ideas. I am always looking for different ways of Roasting, smoking, grilling, BBQing, the many cuts of pork on the mkt today. I look forward to your help in making this post a go to place for all of our pork recipe needs. We have a lot of talent on this site, some of us are BBQ restaurant owners, some lovers of Smoke, others of inside cooking and roasting. I think we can all learn from each others travels, and what we have learned along the way. I cooked off a pork loin at 325 degrees for an hr it was 140 inside temp. I cooked this off for Cuban Sandwiches for Super Bowl Sunday. I seasoned the top with Montreal seasoning, the fat on our home grown pigs is real soft, the seasoning and juices go into the meat leaving it moist and full of flavor...This is what it looks like now, I will show the Cuban sandwiches when I make them. I also plan on using the pork loin for Hot Pork Dips ( Philippe's Kind a sandwich)...............pnwc

That looks tasty. I love a good Cuban sandwich, I spent six years in Tampa while in the Air Force.
 Lately I have been subbing applewood-smoked pulled pork for the regular roast pork in them, it makes an interesting variant - but either way they are wonderful!

Having your own piggy supply makes a big difference! The pork I can buy at the market is way too lean, I like a good fat layer like you show above just like I like a good marble. I loved the chops of my youth that had a good rind of fat to eat before you hit the meat. I'm the only meat eater in this house so pork is mostly a dream.

That looks so good! I think I would eat a good portion of it before making the sandwiches!

Next on the list is to buy some Chinese spices to make Chinese Char Siu Pork Belly. I have to Marinade this for a few days so it will be a few before I post. I am hoping to smoke the belly and they roast it, then baste it while I broil it to get some char on the outside. I need to get these Pork bellies trimmed down so I don't have to much fat to meat ratio.........

Bill, Try a piece of belly rubbed with Hoisin, five spice, Szechaun pepper, turbinado sugar, kosher salt, garlic. I roasted it on a rack over a 2" pan full of water, low and slow, about 325.......Result: Pork Candy!

Looks yummy so far. As reported elsewhere, I have taken to buying bonless spareribs and making them into a kind of bacon..............http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/tm.aspx?high=&m=710301&mpage=1#710360
 
The flavor is really good and because I'm getting the crummy spareribs on sale, a lot cheaper than store=bought bacon, even with the extra work.  I suppose it coud be used in other recipes that called for a Korean/Chinese type BBQ pork

Also, I take cooked tenderloins, slice REAL thin, heated up in some marsala wine with garlic and serve them on a roll with sauteed onion.   Additions could include.....cheese, mayo, BBQ sauce, tomato, etc.
 
With just the 2 of us at home now, even a half of a tenderloin is a lot of meat( I always cut them in half before freezing), so there's usally a cple of ounces left over when i cook one. These go back in the freezer until there's enough for a few sandwiches

If you desire pork that isn't "the other white meat", this place might be what want. A tad pricy, but shipping is included. I got the loin chops and they were VERY satisfying.

I miss the pork roasts you are picturing, pnwchef. Those were pretty much the only ones available when I was growing up. Not this skinny tenderloin infused crap they sell these days.

Tom, we give the heads to a Mexican farmer down the road, they love the stuff. I expect to see some of Chubby's BBQ pork pictures so I can get some ideas for the experts..........Bill

This is what I did with the Pork Belly..........Pork Belly Char Siu
I trimmed some of the fat and cut into two in strips.


I put the pork belly strips in a Char siu marinade over night

I got the coals hot and soaked some apple wood

I smoked this for about an hour on low heat then cooked it until done at about 300 degrees

These are some test slices, the Char Siu came out great, juicy and full of flavor...
