Nothing beats the delicious flavour and juicy texture of pork chops, pork stir-fry or a succulent pork roast with crisp crackling! Pork combines wonderfully with any herbs, spices and sauces, making it a winner on the family’s dinner table every time.
A Feast of Flavours
Pork is unique as a flavour carrier, as it is the only meat type that combines superbly with all the sensory taste combinations and textures. (Savoury, sweet, sour, smokey, bitter, smooth, crisp, meltingly tender, chunky, crunchy, robust, delicate and anything in between.)
Nothing beats pork when it comes to versatility and fusion of flavours!
It’s great with savoury tastes and loves to flirt with almost any herbs and spices. Try sage, fennel, chives, coriander, mint, garlic, parsley, marjoram, tarragon, chopped olives, sundried tomatoes, rocket, goats/mozzarella cheese, grated lemon peel, Oriental sauces, rich brown gravy or anything creative you can think of.
On the fruitier/sweet/sour side of the taste spectrum, think of apples, quinces, pineapple, gooseberries, pomegranate or any berries, prunes, apricots, lemon juice, chutney, onion marmalade, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, baked bananas, chilli chocolate, ginger crumb crusts and so on.
