Roasted Pork neck

Roasted pork neck  with a bowl of creamy winter vegetables…… comfort food does not get any better than this.

The roasted pork neck gives you the Sunday roast indulgence and the vegetables a comforting weekday bowl of food. Definitely the best of both worlds. The roasted pork neck is very forgiving, you can de-bone it, dress it up for a fancy Sunday roast with all the trimmings, but a roasted pork neck is also quite happy to be a delicious sandwich filling or fragrant ragu for sweet potato dumplings. More importantly roasted pork neck is kind to you wallet. So next time you visit your butcher or supermarket, be on the lookout for a de-boned pork neck. It is so very versatile to use.

The vegetables brings this piece of pork to life. What I love more than anything about these vegetables is the simplicity and also how easy it is to make. The vegetables are cooked in the broth from the roasted pork neck and finished off with a touch of cream and some fresh herbs.

To top of this bowl of winter deliciousness, I made some poorman’s Parmesan. It added crunch, lots of flavor and it looks so pretty too. Give it a go!
