Summer and barbecuing definitely belong together… and so do wasps. Especially the long-lasting hot weather and the withering of flowers makes them very hungry and fierce. The scent of grilled food attracts wasps to the annoyance of those eating outside and at worst there might be dozens of them spinning on the edge of a plate or a drinking glass. They seem to be very fond of grilled meat, just as we people are.
Pork and potatoes in Muurikka griddle pan
Stew made of pork, potatoes and varying other ingredients is absolutely one of the best summer foods prepared in a Muurikka pan. We have tested f.ex. broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, various vegetable mixes, chili peppers, beans, carrots, asparagus, zucchini along with pork and potatoes and it’s always just as good – no matter what you use.

Meat skewers made in the oven
Meat skewers remind of summer, sun, warm evenings and grilling and as a matter of fact we mostly make them during summertime. Skewers are easy to make in the oven as well and they even taste almost as good as the ones made outdoors, missing just a slight aroma of smoke and fire.

Slow cooker: salted pork shoulder, potatoes and onions
Not the first time we used a slow cooker to make this meal. Pork shoulders can be found salted as well as natural. If you buy a natural one, it’s better to put it in salted water one day before cooking and it will be tastier that way. Continue reading “Slow cooker: salted pork shoulder, potatoes and onions”
Pork shank with sauerkraut stew
Very cheap but all the more delicious food. Here in Finland pork shank costs about 3 euros/kilo and sauerkraut isn’t that expensive either. One shank and a 400 gr box of sauerkraut with 120 gr of smetana is more than enough for two diners. Continue reading “Pork shank with sauerkraut stew”

Garlic pork fillets and cauliflower chutney
This is just an ordinary everyday dish, nothing very special to say or write about it. Unlike my normal preparations of such fillets these are only marinated in garlic, lemon and salt marinade without any other herbs. Of course everybody can season the fillets according to their own taste. Continue reading “Garlic pork fillets and cauliflower chutney”
Pork sirloin roast wrapped in bacon
I use quite a lot of pork meat in one form or another when cooking and I could say that any kind of pork is good no matter how you make it or which kind of marinade or spices you use. Pork escalopes, sirloin and tenderloin steaks and roasts, chops, shredded meat, side of bacon, smoked bacon – they all have their own roles either in everyday meals or served at a banquet. Continue reading “Pork sirloin roast wrapped in bacon”
Pork and vegetable casserole
And here we have a dish which really wouldn’t need any kind of recipe. Meat can be anything from pork or beef to chicken, while the vegetables and spices can be chosen according to one’s own preferences. How much to make it depends on the size of the used pot and the number of diners. Continue reading “Pork and vegetable casserole”
