Our new favorite pork


This is probably the thing we've eaten most during this summer. We buy a large piece of pork, slice it thinly and whatever pieces are too uneven to slice nicely get stuck in the freezer for a later destiny (usually carnitas). The slices marinate for an hour or two, and are then grilled. Super simple, super fast, and super tasty. It goes with anything, so you can definitely serve your favorite side dishes with this. I'm particularly fond of BBQ Potatoes, Parmesan Sauce and a simple salad.

The cut we use is fläskkarré in Swedish, which is sometimes translated to loin of pork, or collar. I think shoulder is similar. It's a marbled cut of meat, with some fat and lots of flavor.

Our new favorite pork
serves 4

1 kilo loin of pork
50 ml olive oil
1 tbsp garlic, chopped
2 tsp sambal oelek (or similar chili paste)
2 tsp runny honey

Slice the meat very thinly. Mix all ingredients for the marinade, and place with the meat in a plastic bag. Leave at room temperature for a few hours, and turn the bag a few times to make sure all the meat gets marinated. Grill at high temperature, for a minute or two on each side.

Something similar is also a favourite of ours. The only difference is that we usualy puts some balsamic vinegar in the marinade.

Thank you Anne. Cooked this dish on the BBQ in Sydney, Australia last night. Both the pork and parmesan sauce - perfection!
