When I saw pork racks in Tesco's Non Halal Freezer, I went woahhhhh! I must must buy!
Although these are not big racks, but then better then none. It's not easy getting these here as local butchers with their cleavers won't sell you part of the rack (where it's meatiest!)
I've got 2 smallish racks
Cola is supposed to me a meat tenderizer. But my meat is not very tender, I don't know if it's because of the high amount of sugar used (it could dry up the meat) or because my lazy butt took 3 months to cook these after purchasing. I do hope to try this out again in the future, that is if I get some racks again.
Any butchers out there that needs advertising??? LOL. *I'm dreaming*
Spiced Cola Grilled Pork Rack
Recipe source: Wendyywy
1kg pork rack
135gm light brown sugar
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 cinnamon stick
1 bay leaf
2 cloves garlic, bashed
2 shallots, halved and bashed
1. Put pork rack into a ziplock bag. Pour cola over pork rack. Let it sit for 10 minutes. Then put the rest of the ingredients in and lock the bag, pressing out as much air as you can. Marinate pork rack overnight.
2. The next day, put some oil onto paper towel and wipe roasting rack with the oiled towel. Place pork rack onto roasting rack.
3. Grill on 180(fan)/200C for 25 minutes, turning once after 10 minutes.
4. Meanwhile pour all the marinade into a saucepan and reduce the marinade to a thick sauce (mine was about half cup's amount).
5. When the 25 minutes is up, both sides will look golden. Remove pork rack from oven and generously brush sauce on the rack.
6. Turn the rack upwards again and generously brush on the sauce.
7. Grill with the same temperature for another 5 minutes or until the surface looks bubbly.
8. Brush another layer of sauce over and repeat grilling process for another 5 minutes.
9. Let rack cool down slightly before cutting.
Line your pan with foil... because you see... all the drippings will burn. You won't want to scrub your knuckles off.
