Step 1:

Preparing the pork: Coat the boned pork shoulder with olive oil, then massage in fennel seeds and pepper. Turn pork over and coat the skin with salt. Place pork on a lined baking tray, add the water, then cover it with foil and place the lid on top. Put the tray in a pre-heated oven at 160 degrees Celsius and cook six hours. Half an hour before cooking time is up, remove the foil and turn the heat up to 220 degrees Celsius. Once the pork has cooked through, remove from oven and allow it to rest for 20 minutes before pulling the meat part.

Step 2:

To prepare the salad: Cut, trim and grate the celeriac and coat it with lemon juice. Finely chop the fresh herbs, starting with the parsley, chives then dill and add them to the salad, following by the Praise Whole Egg Mayonnaise. Mix all of the ingredients together until it is well-combined.

Message from chef Liam Crawley

Liam Crawley

I really like making this recipe because I can create the pork filling in advance, and in bulk, meaning I free-up time in the kitchen for other duties. While it is simple to create, it is important to allow the pork to cook slowly while resting in its juices to ensure the best possible flavour.
