Pork Loin with Pickled Apples (+Others!)

Week 4 of lockdown and I was checking the contents of the freezer to find big stuff to cook and release space for some meat deliveries. I spotted a pork loin from Turner and George and immediately thought of the Pork loin with pickled apples recipe by Rich Harris. I have cooked it a few times now and it’s a cracking dish. Decision made!

081/18: Pork Loin with Pickled Apples


This recipe is from Fire & Smoke by Rich Harris:

 

The Prep:

I made the rub with sea salt, black pepper, dark brown soft sugar, paprika and onion granules. This was applied to the meat and left to sit whilst the Kamado Joe got up to temperature.

Hasselback potatoes with red tahina and sour cream from the Berber and Q book. Potatoes sliced with a sharp knife. Butter melted in a pan, oil and rosemary added then potatoes dipped in the butter before the pan is added to the KJ.

Carrots: Topped and tailed, oil and thyme on top.

The Cook:

Once the KJ was at 180c I added the Pork, potatoes and carrots.

Then went to make the pickled apples: Caster sugar, cider vinegar, water and salt in a pan then brought to the boil. Once cooled I added sliced apple and left it to stand.

Once the pork hit 65c I took it out the KJ and wrapped it in foil for 20 minutes.

These were cracking burgers, the kids in particular liked them and nothing was left which is always a good sign.

Hot Dogs

Regular readers of the blog will know Turner and George produce my favourite Hot Dogs.

Nothing too flash with these, pricked with a cocktail stick then cooked indirect on the Napoleon Pro 22 with a chunk of cherry.

Buns, hot dog then sauerkraut and red onions from Vadasz Deli before generous squirts of ketchup and mustard- glorious!

These are still my favourite hot dogs, so tasty!

Pizza Bible Pizzas

I am still using my favourite pizza dough recipe from the Pizza Bible and this was a double batch with a mixture of adults and kids pizzas. The kids ones basically get what ever combination of toppings the kids ask for!
