Worried about how you are going to cater for your next event? Have you thought about having a hog or spit roast? The awesome thing about a hog roast is that you can cook and prepare it yourself.
It’s simple, all you need to do is buy a pig or a lamb and hire a machine. When a hog is roasting, it needs special attention and requires constant care. After about a half an hour of roasting, the skin should be soft and you will be able to score the skin. Once this is done the job of basting begins.
Basting is the very exciting part of roasting where all the additional flavour is added. Instead of using a traditional brush to do this, why not use a bunch of rosemary dipped in Mediterranean marinade to enhance the flavour. Marinating your roast in advance, especially the smaller parts, avoids drying up the roast. Making a juice marinade and letting the roast lay in it once its cooked will also help keep the roast moisturised.
Slicing the roast needs to be done in a very refined way and this process could take up to about one hour. Don’t forget to give your guests some of the marinade when serving up your hog roast.
If that was a mouthful to take in – Do not fear!
