Okay, to make Wild Boar happy ,
more work for Elin , we decided not to dine out for our New Year Eve dinner . I was hoping to paint the town red with him but he hates crowd so can forget ab . I decided to serve the carnivor WB his favorite , to bye bye a wonderful and happy 2012 and a toast to a better 2013.....yea his favorite...Roast Pork Rack . Joshua my Piggy boy bought herbs rubs and steak seasoning for me when he was in UK :) so, time to use the seasoning for the pork rack .........................
Managed to get some pork rack ( asked the butcher to cut into 3 thick slices for easy work when serving ) from my meat butcher in Canning market. She told me " you are lucky today " ...and charged me RM75 for three strips of pork rack LOL! When I said " wow, that is pricey man " She counter replied and said " you go eat at 'Indulgence ' a fine dining restaurant in Ipoh , and come back tell me how much you are charged for the roast rack " ! LOL! I forgot what I replied her coz my mind was already planning what I am going to with the RM75 pork rack :)))) I left with a few tips from the butcher on how to make the meat tender and juicy :) worth my RM75 !!! I asked her to cut into three thick slices. The other part is the rib ,I used them for making another mouth-watering dish which I will share in my next post .
The trick is to use sodium bicarbonate to tenderize the meat..just 1 tsp for the three pieces. Rub sea salt and black pepper to season overnight. After which , I dumped them into the oven to roast for 30 minutes. Took them out and rub the steak seasoning on the pork rack with a brush and gosh it smells good :) Put the pork rack slices back to the oven and further roasted for another 30 minutes. Boy, it was so fragrant !
the seasoning is " American Steakhouse Seasoning "
I have made 3 sides to go with this roasted pork rack
which I will share with you in the coming posts.
I have been pretty busy the past weeks but will try to update
Have a nice day !
