Boiled bacon.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Family point blank refuse to eat the bacon out of the freezer because it was made last year.
I hate waste so I am going to do a version of a German style boiled salt pork with short cut sauerkraut .
I saw Rick Stein do it on the TV recently. He was trying to do version of the pork knuckle so revered in Munich. Locals like it ,salted & boiled ,tourists have it roasted with crisp skin.
Rick did it with unsmoked cured pork belly I will use what I have .

Not as happy as my dogs would be!
Into cold water goes about 700gm bit of my smoked bacon .Add a bottle of apple cider 330ml,an onion studded with about 8 cloves, 3 fat tabs dark brown sugar,coriander seed ,black peppercorns ,6 bay leaves, fat pinch chilli flakes, 2 cloves of garlic bashed.
Gentle simmer until done .
Made my sauerkraut with red cabbage because that's what I had.
I will post a plate shot.

I don't know how that all went on as a quote?
Simple recipe, very winter food . Not that it's cold by Northern Hemisphere standards but Aussies book holidays in the tropics if the daytime temp falls below 10 c.

This was a nice change from a lot of my regular cookery.
Poaching the bacon with the aromatics gave it some lovely flavours ,left the fat in the pot as well.
Saurkraut gave it a nice sharp contrast to the brown sugar in the broth.
I suppose I could have had a couple of litres of Pilsner with it .in keeping with the German vibe but I had a great Cabernet Sauvignon instead.
