RELATED: Pork And Vegie Kebabs With Herb Marinade Recipe

Serves 6


1.2 kg (421/3 oz) pork ribs, belly still on

100 ml (31/2 fl oz) extra virgin olive oil

sea salt flakes

1 brown onion, finely diced

3 garlic cloves, chopped

1 tsp thyme leaves

6 bay leaves

2 green capsicum (peppers), finely diced

6 tomatoes, peeled, seeded (see glossary) and grated

300 ml (101/2 fl oz) white wine

300 g (101/2 oz) bomba rice

200 g (7 oz) green peas, podded


  1. Take a sharp knife and cut the pork ribs between each rib to make single ribs with meat on either side of the bone.
  2. Heat 80 ml of oil in a large heavy-based saucepan over medium–high heat and cook the ribs, in 2 batches, for 10–15 minutes or until browned all over. Season with salt while cooking. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Wipe out the pan, so that the dish does not taste too much like pork fat, and return to medium heat.
  4. Add the remaining oil. Add the onion, garlic, thyme, bay leaves and season with a good pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 8–10 minutes or until the onion is lightly golden.
  5. Add the capsicum and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until softened. Meanwhile, bring 1.5 litres of water to the boil, then reduce to a bare simmer. Add the tomato to the onion mixture and cook for 30 minutes or until thick and pulpy.
  6. Add the wine and increase the heat to high. Allow to bubble away for a few minutes, then reduce the heat to medium–low, add back the ribs and 1 litre of the hot water and simmer for 1 hour 10 minutes or until the ribs are tender.
  7. Add the remaining hot water, increase the heat to medium and bring to a steady simmer. Add the rice, season with salt and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Add the peas and cook for 4 minutes or until tender. The rice should just be a little past al dente but still firm to the bite.
  8. Serve straight away.

Matt Moran’s Porchetta Sliders with Apple Slaw Recipe

Matt Moran shares his mouth-watering porchetta sliders recipe from his new show Paddock to Plate. What’s better than juicy roast pork with a dollop of home-made applesauce, topped with a crunchy and refreshing apple slaw on soft dinner rolls? Don’t forget to serve each slider with a piece of crunchy crackling. They make great summer BBQ fare as well as a passed canapé for Christmas and New Years parties.

Paddock to Plate airs Wednesdays at 8.30pm on Foxtel’s The LifeStyle Channel.

Makes: 24 sliders


3 kg pork shoulder
1/3 cup table salt
24 dinner rolls, buttered

Porchetta mix

1/4 cup salt flakes
5 sprigs rosemary
1 bunch oregano
1 tablespoon fennel seeds, roasted
1 tablespoon white peppercorns
I head garlic, peeled
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup coconut oil

Apple slaw

1 apple, peeled and shredded
1/2 red onion, sliced thinly
1/4 white cabbage, shredded
1/4 red cabbage, shredded
2 carrots, grated
2 brussel sprouts, shredded
1/4 cup good quality mayonnaise
salt and pepper


4 apples, peeled, cored and cut in to quarters
1/4 cup cider


1. To prepare pork, pour boiling water over the skin, and rub with table salt. Cover then refrigerate for 5 hours.

2. Preheat oven to 160⁰C. Rinse the salt off the pork and pat dry with kitchen paper. Place all of the porchetta mix ingredients (except the coconut oil) in a mortar and pestle and grind to a paste. Rub the paste all over the pork shoulder, and let the flavour infuse for at least 1 hour.

3. Brush the pork with the melted coconut oil before placing in the oven and cook slowly for 3 hours, occasionally brushing with more of the oil.

4. To make the applesauce, place the apple quarters and cider into a saucepan and simmer for 15 minutes or until the apples are tender. Blend the apples with a stick blender to make a smooth puree and set aside until ready to serve.

5. To make the appleslaw, shred the apple, and toss with the remainder of the appleslaw ingredients. Mix thoroughly and season to taste with salt and pepper

6. Once pork is cooked, remove from oven, cover with foil and leave to rest for 15 minutes. When rested, take the crackling off and chop in to small pieces, and then carve the pork.

7. To serve, spread the buttered dinner rolls with applesauce, then place the appleslaw onto the rolls and top with the pork and crackling. Serve immediately.

Pulled Pork Sliders

Who doesn’t love sliders? My Kitchen Rules 2011 winners Sammy and Bella share a recipe for juicy pulled pork sliders served with a tangy passionfruit relish.

Serves 4, makes 8

750 pork neck or shoulder (boneless, skinless)
4 passionfruit
Extra virgin olive oil, for frying
1 cup vegetable stock
1 tbsp tomato paste
2 tsp dried oregano

Passionfruit Relish
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 eschallots
2 cloves garlic
1 long red chilli
Roots and stems from ¼ bunch coriander
¾ cup passionfruit pulp (9 or 10 passionfruits)
½ cup white wine vinegar
2/4 cup raw sugar

8 small dinner rolls (or 4 large burger buns)
Shredded red cabbage, to serve
Coriander leaves, to serve

1. Cut the pork into 3cm thick steaks, across the grain. Remove pulp from 4 passionfruit and place in a bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, then pass through a sieve to extract the juice (discard the seeds). Marinate the pork in the passionfruit juice overnight.

2. Preheat oven to 160C. Heat a large heavy based oven proof saucepan to high with some olive oil. Remove pork from the marinade, then fry in batches until well caramelised on both sides. Set meat aside and deglaze the pan with vegetable stock and stir in tomato paste, oregano and any reserved passionfruit marinade. Return pork to the pot and cover with some baking paper (a cartouche). Cover with a tight fitting lid and bake in the oven for 4 or 5 hours, or until the meat is falling apart.

3. Once the pork has cooled slightly, it is ready to be pulled. You can do this by using 2 forks, but it’s quicker by hand. Put on a pair of dishwashing gloves to protect your hands from the heat, and gently use your fingers to shred the meat. Place back in the pot together with any cooking liquid, then place back on the stove and cook until the sauce has thickened (if needed). Season to taste.

4. In the meantime, make the relish. Finely chop the eschallots, garlic, chilli and coriander roots and stems. Place in a pot with olive oil and cook on low-medium until translucent and fragrant. Add passion fruit (seeds and pulp), sugar and vinegar and simmer for about 5 minutes, until the sauce thickens. Remove from heat and season to taste. Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

5. To serve, toast the buns and place a generous amount of pulled pork inside. Top with shredded red cabbage and coriander leaves, then a dollop of relish. Serve immediately.

Cook 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully whisk in goat milk mixture. Whisk until sugar is dissolved and mixture is well blended. Set aside.

2. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in large Frying pan on medium-high heat. Add pork in batches; cook until browned on both sides. Remove pork from Frying pan . Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to Frying pan, if needed. Add onion; cook and stir 5 minutes or until browned.

3. Stir in caramel sauce; cook and stir 5 minutes on medium heat. Return pork to Frying pan; cook 5 minutes or until heated through. Serve pork over cooked rice.
