Beer-Braised Pork Roll

Roasting pork meat in dark beer makes it incredibly flavorful! The meat gets a crunchy caramel-like brown crust on the outside and a juicy and consistency on the inside. But the beauty of this pork roll lays in its stuffing - black olives and fresh herbs, like rosemary and oregano, enhance the meat with incredible flavours.

Done

Place the end of the string underneath the meat. Make a tight double knot. Make a loop around your left hand, fingers up. Now turn your hand, so your fingers face the meat. Let the loop fall onto the meat and remove your hand. There’s a loose knot where the twine crosses. Lift up the meat and pull the loop around it. Tighten the loop around the meat. Repeat this until you reach the end of the meat. At the end, make a double tight knot around the last loop and cut off the excess twine.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
