This recipe comes from one of our regular customers, Steve Bell at the Yellow Bicycle Cafe in Blandford Forum. Steve says, ‘we have been using amzing Story Pig Tamworth Pork on our menu at the Yellow Bicycle Cafe for a couple of years now and when we get some belly pork in for a special we always want to do something that does it justice. Slow roasting is a must to get that soft, sticky texture our customers love, however extra flavours want to be subtle, allowing the natural flavour of this amazing meat to shine through.
“If you’ve not tried sumac before, it’s a wonderful, citrusy spice made from the plane of the same name, which grows in Northern Africa, Eastern Asia and North America. It’s now readily available in supermarkets (we buy ours in Tesco) and can be used to give many dishes a bright and vibrant lift and is great with both meat and vegetables. Here we use it as a simple rub and it really lifts the pork without overpowering it.s flavour.”
“This recipe uses a 1kg joint of belly pork on the bone, so adjust the amounts if yours is bigger”
