Corned Pork Pastrami and Canadian Peameal Bacon
Used some 5lb slabs of a Hampshire hind leg to make this. I usually use back loin for the Canadian bacon but wanted to try this hunk of pork for a change.
peameal bacon... http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...=peameal+bacon
The cure for the corned pork is the same one I use for beef and venison pastrami...
Cured both slabs of pork leg for 8 days...
first the corned pork
Used a pickle cure for the Canadian bacon...
After curing I rinsed the corned pork and seasoned with the cooking seasonings.
Smoked it in the drum...
I let the pork steam in beef stock...
made a hot bacon dressing. ( I love this stuff, could eat it with a spoon!)
The corned pork pastrami, smoked tatoes with hot bacon dressing...
Made a batch of biscuits the next day...
The Canadian peameal bacon, dredged in cornmeal (didn't have peameal), fried in butter..
Kind of a "north meets south" breakfast. Canadian Peameal bacon, fried egg, grits and a biscuit with corncob jelly. :)
Made a sammich the next day with the biscuits and fried peameal bacon.
It was kinda tasty!
I've made both of these before, I really like them. The corned pork tastes like a mix of pastrami, ham and corned beef.
Thanks for looking!
Awesome cook, Jeanie!
Well, at least I knew what grits are without googling. :becky: Great looking breakfast!
You have blown my mind Jeanie! :shocked: You had me at pork pastrami and took it way beyond that! I have yet to try pickle curing but I am definitely looking forward to it - curing meats has been getting to be more of a regular thang for me and I love it.
Nice job on the fried egg btw. I am impressed and my dad would most definitely approve - he does not fark around when it comes to frying an egg.
Grits have kind of gone out of my life since I started watching what I eat more closely, but the holidays are near and we'll be having a house full, so....:hungry:
I'm fixing to hit the hay and I think I'll be dreaming about that pork pastrami plate very soon. :bounce:
Thank you Peeps! :becky:
Jim, thank you! Hope you give this stuff a try sometime. :thumb:
Thanks about the egg too, I'm glad to hear that you and your dad would approve!
I'm heading to bed too. Gonna dream about APL's beef ribs! :laugh::laugh:
Thanks again.... :thumb:
Wow, never heard of peameal bacon, that looks terrific. I need to try this, nice cook as always Jeanie.
Phark...that big plate with the broccoli looks out of this world good!
I started dreaming at hot bacon dressing.
I see that topping some taters or rice in my future. Thanks for sharing that great cook.
You done gone and did it AGAIN!
Absolutely farking amazing, Jeanie!:clap:
