  • pork rind - recipes/uses, anyone?

    Hello there!

    Bought a roll of pork rind in the supermarket the other day because I thought SWMBO (she who must be obeyed) needed such an essential ingredients - or I might have some use for it in the WFO...

    Can't easily find a recipe for it - is there anything on FB?

    Cheers,

    LMH

    Raw pork rind? I can think of a few things...wrap it around a lean roast like a pork loin.

    Fry it up and make mofongo (better google that if you have never had it).

      Thanks Drake,

      yes I googled a heap of recipes, but there was nothing specific to WFOs...
      Will probably try one of the Latin American ideas tomorrow - and report back on the success, if any...

        Here as promised: being a bit on the lazy side, I just cut up the big piece of rind into thin strips and shoved the lot into the pizza-heat oven in our old paella pan. They sizzled and curled nicely and sweated out a lot of fat...

        I then took out the pan because it was getting too hot, and put a tray of bread rolls in despite Bianca's misgivings about the heat. They browned beautifully in no time at all, and when they smelled 'right' I took them out and put the paella pan with the rinds back in.

        Bianca then admonished me to give the rolls a bit more oven time, and I slid the tray on top of the paella pan for another 10 minutes or so.

        When I removed the tray, the rinds were sort of getting mushily carbonised, if you can imagine such a thing :-) Bianca loved the rinds, but kept remonstrating about the rolls (which I found rather nicely done and crusty).

        I then baked two sourdough loaves, again by smell - perhaps for 50 minutes or thereabouts - and finally put in a pot-au-feu overnight. This did smell beautifully done by about 1 a.m. but I was too lazy to get up... we ate the resulting caramelised mush for lunch.

        Pics of the experiment (minus the mush) at Picasa Web Albums - carioca - Forno_del_gallo , right at the end of the album...

        Cheers,

        NB: Will be cooking by 'smell' for a while until I build that insulated door and put in the oven thermometer I have already bought :-)
