Thee Wee Pigs

Thee Wee Pigs

I’ve been under a rock for a while, so I had to come back to the blog with a cracker – sort of like Kasabian’s recent album… Tasty!

Pork on Pork on Pork. 

Pork on Pork on Pork

Not a bad combo! I’ve my youngest brother to thank for putting these flavours together… this wee recipe stuffs Hannan Meats’ pork fillet with SculleryMade Black Lava and wraps it all up with Hannan’s Guanciale for a spiced, crispy, juicy triple-pork dish that’s easy to prepare and takes less than an hour to roast!

Our SculleryMade Black Lava is a chilli black pudding so it has a kick of heat to it. It’s also got coffee, cocoa and smoked paprika in the recipe so it adds a smokey, roasted element to the dish. If you can’t get your hands on our puds, you could use another black pudding and add a teaspoon each of cocoa powder, fresh coffee grounds, smoked paprika and a freshly chopped bird’s eye chilli, well-mixed together to stuff the fillet.

While cooking, the meat releases a mixture of spiced, salty, chilli juices which can be added to a Bramley apple juice reduction for a spicy, tart sauce to serve with the pork. We’ll have new season potatoes on our plates now and using this potato, pea and pudding recipe you could whip up a tasty side-dish to serve alongside these thee wee pigs! Enjoy!

Thee Wee Pigs

Ingredients:

300g Hannan’s Pork Fillet

120g SculleryMade Black Lava

100g Moyallon Guanciale

1 Shallot, chopped

1 Tablespoon Panko Breadcrumbs

 

Method:

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 50 minutes

Method

Using a sharp knife, remove any silver skin from the fillet (this doesn’t dissolve when the tenderloin is cooked, so it needs to be trimmed away)

Slice the fillet long ways from end to end to form a pocket.

Mix the pudding, shallot and breadcrumbs well until the pudding softens and the ingredients are evenly mixed using it to stuff and fill the pocket in the fillet.

On a large piece of tinfoil, create a diagonal shaped lattice of guanciale.

Place the stuffed fillet along one edge of the lattice and using the tin foil to roll the fillet, cover the opening of the pocket with the lattice .

Stuffed

Fold the tinfoil around the meat to seal into a tight parcel and cook at 180°C for 40 minutes.

Fold back the tinfoil to uncover the guanciale and cook at 180°C for a further 10 minutes to crisp the guanciale.

Serve in your favourite company with a glass of Mac’s Armagh Cider (Dry)!
