SEASONALLY WITH PORK
& COOKING ARTICLE
Top pork recipes for the Autumn
is one of Britains favourite meats yet
many of us have no idea how to cook it, or what other
foods to put with it bring out the full flavour.
We all know how to stick some bacon or sausages in
a pan - some of us may also be a dab hand at creating
a pork Sunday roast. However when it comes to cooking
with more adventurous cuts like pork belly, shoulder,
ribs or creating crackling, many of us are scared we
will make a pigs ear of it.
Pork is a very versatile meat and an ideal accompaniment
to a variety of flavours and ingredients, and can feed
a family of four for less than any other red meat. There
is also a multitude of ways to cook it.
Pork might not be the first meat that springs mind
when it comes to cooking curries for example, but Spicy
Pork Pumpkin Curry, which requires only five ingredients,
is perfect served with crusty bread and seasonal vegetables
as the evenings start to grow longer.
course no pork recipe collection would be complete without
traditional Sunday roasts and family-favourite chops
and the new Love Pork booklet doesnt disappoint.
So after a long day at work, give the Pork Chops Topped
with Bramley Apple and Cheddar Cheese a try. Taking
just 20 minutes to cook and using just four ingredients
this dish couldnt be easier.
