Pork as we know it

The first thing that gets to my mind when I see pork, is our popular Maltese ‘majjalata’. It translates to literally ‘pork feast’ where a whole pig is slow cooked on a spit-roast.

Since this is undoubtedly not a thing that can be done at home, we’d have to accommodate with our pork chops, pork belly, ham, loin and so on. In London I had also tried pig trotters which basically are its feet and as disgusting as they looked, I have to say that the taste was amazing thanks to the great chef Pierre Koffman.

It kind of puts me off every time I attempt to plan to cook pork because it is easily overcooked and I don’t like it when it’s dry.

Somehow Jas delivers this meat nice and tender even if it is stir fried, just like this week’s recipe Pork & Egg Stir Fried Rice. I have to say that although it doesn’t look the most attractive plate by sight, not enough colours to attract the hungry eyes, it just tastes great! Little C couldn’t stop eating it and I had to literally swipe my finger to the plate by the end of it and I’m not being cheesy here!

You should really give this a try if you’re a pork fan and let us know how it went down!
