Recipes PAPRIKA PORK RASHERS
PAPRIKA PORK RASHERS
Smoked paprika is one of those have-to-have cupboard essentials. I love it for its ability to lend an earthy richness to tomato-based vegetarian dishes – a taste so good it will even have meat lovers begging for more. And I seriously adore it for its ability to transform both meat and seafood from just so-so to “hey, what is this”? From paella to creamy tomato soup, toasted cheese sarmies to chicken burgers, there’s very little you can cook up that won’t benefit from a pinch of smoked paprika.
I say ‘pinch’ deliberately, because as much as I revere smoked paprika, it is a dominant flavour, so judicious is the way to go when you cook with it. But not too judicious! A liberal sprinkling of the stuff is what makes this smokey marinade/ baste really shine. I used it on pork rashers that I did on the braai (BBQ), but it’s great with chicken or beef too.
- WHAT YOU WILL NEED -
- 1 Tbsp SMOKED SPANISH PAPRIKA
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- Handful of coriander, finely chopped
- 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- Juice of 1 lemon
- ½ cup tomato sauce
- 1 Tbsp honey
- OPTIONAL: 1 Tbsp (choose your favourite chilli seasoning) CHIPOTLE CHILLI
- METHOD -
Combine all the baste ingredients and refrigerate until you use it. This will keep in your fridge for at least three days. Use as a marinade and as a basting sauce. To make smokey pork rashers, spoon 2 Tbsp of the marinade over 10-12 rashers and allow them to marinade for an hour. Then place them on the braai or under the grill and baste liberally with the remainder of the basting sauce.
