Winter-cured Meat (Step 3: Cooking and Serving)

Print Friendly and PDF
So it's now the middle of winter and you are feeling like making a quick and simple meal.  Now is the time for you to enjoy the fruits of your labour.  Take a strip of the winter cured meat out from the refrigerator and prepare it as follows:

  1. Rinse the meat with lukewarm water to wash off some of the excess salt that helped marinate the meat during the preparation phase.
  2. Prepare a rice cooker with rice and water like you would usually when cooking your evening portion of rice.  Place the strips of winter-cured meat flat on the uncooked rice.  Press the on button to cook the rice.  What will happen is that as the rice cooks, the natural oils from the winter-cured meat will infuse the rice with all of its flavours.  I decided to also make some pork sausages at the same time.
  3. Once the rice is fully cooked, you can take out the strips of winter-cured meat.  Slice them into 0.5cm thick slices and serve
