Ribs on the BBQ always go down a storm, especially when they’ve been cooked slowly over charcoal for a few hours. We add a bit of coffee to our BBQ rub, to really wake the flavour up.
Did you know that pork mince leads to a much more moist meatball than it’s beef counterpart? And, we’ve taken the hard work out for you!
Our Caramelised Porkers make a marvellous meatball, for a Valentine’s Day dinner worthy of Lady and the Tramp themselves. Watch the video here
1 pack Jolly Hog Caramelised Porker, removed from skins
1 large white onion or two small ones, chopped
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 red chilli, finely chopped
1 tin chopped tomatoes
300ml vegetable stock
1 tbsp Tomato puree
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 tbsp dried basil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
Use ½ a sausage for each meatball, and roll into a ball. Fry over a medium heat, in a little oil, until the outsides begin to brown. Remove meatballs from the pan, and leave aside until the sauce is ready.
In the same pan, fry onions until they begin to soften. Then add the garlic and chilli with the oregano, dried basil, salt and pepper.
Add the tomato paste, stock and chopped tomatoes (add more than one tin if you prefer a wet sauce) and simmer for approx 30 minutes over a medium-low heat.
Add the meatballs back into the sauce and cook for a further 15 minutes, checking that the meatballs are cooked through.
Serve with spaghetti, grated parmesan and fresh basil.
Take the palaver out of midweek meals, with a simple traybake. Jolly Hog streaky bacon, wrapped around chicken and baked with potatoes and vegetables. Easy peasy.
1 pack Jolly Hog streaky bacon
4 chicken breasts
500g baby potatoes
½ pack green beans
16 cherry tomatoes
3 cloves garlic, roughly crushed
150ml white wine
Dried oregano, salt, black pepper
Instructions (video here)
🐽Start by washing and cutting the potatoes, before placing in a deep roasting dish. Season and coat in a little oil, then put in the oven at 200C for about 25 mins, until they start to brown a little.
🐽Whilst the potatoes are in the oven, chop the green beans and cut lemons into wedges.
🐽Wrap the streaky bacon around the chicken breasts (three rashers per breast), and place into the roast tray so that none are touching.
🐽Add in green beans and tomatoes, garlic, lemon wedges and white wine.
🐽Sprinkle with oregano and season with salt and pepper to taste.
🐽Bake in the oven at 180C for 30 mins, until the chicken is cooked through and the bacon starts to crisp.
