When I was last in Waitrose I saw in their barbecue range a Mexican inspired pork king kebab
Outdoor-bred British pork (shoulder) is seasoned with a spicy Al Pastor rub which blends chipotle and ancho chilli, black pepper, cumin, clove and cinnamon. Finished with a sticky pineapple, chilli and oregano glaze.
I did quite like the sound of this, but then I saw the price of £9.50 (£11.88 per kg). Well this put me off slightly and I did think it might me a little too spicy for some.
So I decided to have a go at making it myself. I got some pork shoulder from Aldi, which was £3.19 (£4.56 per kg). This I cut into strips and then rubbed with some pepper and garlic seasoning, and some salt.
I then threaded the strips onto skewers. I used two skewers so that the pork was like a flat slab.
This I then chargrilled on my griddle pan.
Once the pork was cooked, I let it rest and then I sliced the pork off the skewer.
It was rather good.
