  • Zest and juice of one lemon

  • 1/4 bunch of chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1/4 bunch of chopped mint
  • 1/2 red onion very finely diced
  • 1/4 cup pistachio kernels, roasted and roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup toasted Pepita seeds
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Drizzle of good quality olive oil or lemon infused olive oil

Directions

For the Pork:

  1. Blitz herbs, fennel seeds, lemon juice and zest, anchovies, garlic, salt and pepper in a food processor.
  2. Rub marinade all over the pork neck and leave it in the fridge overnight.
  3. Remove from the fridge 1 hour prior to cooking so that the pork comes to room temperature.
  4. Preheat oven to 120 degrees Celsius.
  5. Scrape marinade off the pork neck and reserve.
  6. Heat oil in a heavy based pan and brown pork neck on all sides.
  7. Place Kipfler potatoes in the bottom of a casserole dish. Place pork on top. Mix chicken stock or water with marinade and pour over the pork and potatoes. Place a lid on your casserole dish and cook in the oven for 2.5-3 hours until a skewer easily pushes through the meat. Remove from the pan and rest under a piece of foil.
  8. Place casserole dish on the stove over a medium heat to reduce remaining liquid. Add the butter and melt over the potatoes.

For the Sprout Slaw:

  1. In a large bowl mix shaved Brussels sprouts, red onion, Pepita, pistachios, herbs, lemon juice, half of the Parmesan and olive oil.
  2. Season to taste and place in a salad bowl with remaining Parmesan sprinkled over the top.

T0 Finish:

  1. Slice pork and serve on the warm and buttery potatoes with your slaw on the side!
