Sugar Chilli Pork Roast - The MOST Tender Roast Ever!!! Perfect for the 4th of July!!!
Recipe type: Pork / Roast
Just a few weeks ago I featured delicious sugar chilli pork neck steaks. A few viewers asked whether it is possible to make whole sugar chilli pork neck roast. So I put this my list of things to try and it turned out magnificently, except for the fact that it turned out so juicy and so tender that it was quite difficult to slice cleanly.... and I quite honestly don't see that as a problem. Alternatively, shred the pork and serve as deliciously tender and sumptuous pulled pork.
- 1.5kg / 3.5lb Whole deboned pork neck
- 80g Demerara sugar (or treacle sugar)
- 20ml Coarse cracked black pepper
- 20ml Dried chilli flakes
- 20ml Himalayan rock salt (fine)
- To start you need a whole deboned pork neck, around 1.5kg or 3.5 pounds.
- In a bowl, combine the demerara sugar, coarse cracked black pepper, dried chilli flakes and Himalayan rock salt. I prefer this salt as it contains no iodine, and imparts a slight acidity to the food resulting in a much rounder flavor.
- Start sprinkling this mixture over the pork and pressing it firmly into surface of the meat. Continue until the slab of meat is coated well and all of the sugar chilli rub is used.
- Place the pork in a roasting tin and scrape any over overrun rub over the top of the pork.
- I am adding boiled potato wedges to the pan as well.
- Roast the pork in a preheated oven at 250c or 480f for 60 minutes undisturbed.
- On removing the pork from the oven, the first thing you will notice is the amazing charred crust that has formed on the pork.... not to mention the insanely incredible aroma.
- By this stage the potatoes will also be well roasted and will have absorbed some of the amazing pan flavors.
- Serve this immediately with the accompaniments of your choice.
- I will be publishing a video shortly where I will show you the trick to these amazing roast potatoes.
