Congratulations – you have made it through your first Hog Roast and it’s gone down a treat; your friends have full bellies and big grins. The Big Roast team are packing up, and ensuring everything is tidy.
For all you foodies out there… this is the perfect opportunity to grab yourself some left over bones from which you can make your own tasty Pork Stock. Predominantly used in Mexican and Asian cooking, Pork Stock seems to be overlooked in the British kitchen. We at Big Roast, however, believe it’s a kitchen staple and with little hassle you can have a Pork Stock of your own, that is leaps and bounds above anything you will buy in the store.
Pork Stock Recipe
- Leftover hog roast pork bones (and any leftover meat – if there is any!)
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Bay leaves
- Filtered Water
- Salt and Pepper
The method is simple – add the pork bones, leftover meat, onions and carrots to a stock pot. Cover with cold filtered water. Bring this to a simmer over a medium heat.
As pork is a fatty meat there will be a lot of foam and scum rising to the top. Skim this off and continue to simmer until the stock has stopped foaming. Add the bay leaf, thyme, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper.
Turn down the heat and let the stock percolate gently for a couple of hours, ensuring you do not let it boil. Remember to skim off any extra foam that rises to the surface.
After a few hours remove from the heat and let the stock cool slightly. Strain out the solids and put the liquid into the fridge in an air tight container. Once the stock has chilled completely the excess fat will rise to the top and solidify – easily remove this and voila! You have a delicious, low fat Pork Stock!
