Marinated Pork Collar

Available from the PRIME Butcher Counter at Arkadia Foodstore Gozo

Marinated Pork Collar

The pork collar meat is cut from the larger shoulder, mainly the piece that runs from the pig’s neck to the tip of its loin. This piece is excellent for roasting, braising, slow cooking, or grilling in steaks. Keep the fat on to preserve all the flavour and tenderness there is to absorb from the meat.

Pork chops are best cooked fast on high heat, so they do not dry out, and make sure to flip the steaks over frequently while grilling. Make sure you let the pork come to room temperature before cooking.

This pork collar is marinated in a smoky spice rub. Sear in a pan or a cast-iron skillet with some cooking oil on medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes on each side.

Serve with roasted or steamed vegetables, potatoes, or a side salad.
