Sunday lunch

If there’s one thing the Dad that lives in this house likes, it’s some tasty mexican. Having travelled through Central and South America he fell in love with heat. And tortillas. And jalapeños. So I thought I best whip up a bit of a mexican fiesta for the old boy today.

I slow roasted some pork belly which I shredded with some sch-weet arse crackle over its back. I made Gourmet Girlfriend’s salsa which is dripping in lime, cumin, garlicky goodness and rolled them all up in some tortillas (I ran out of steam to make home made but these were some good quality mexican ones I had stored in the freezer – just defrosted and fried in a hot pan to be bought back to life) and some smoky chipotle sauce drizzled over. Served with some ice cold beer the result was one HAPPY Dad.

Happy Fathers Day to one of best going round x

  3. Ok. I’m making this this weekend. How did you do the pork? Care to share you secrets??

  4. Happy Father’s Day to Rob! That fiesta looks amazing! I made the father in our house & the father in law a roast chook with an assortment of salads with a TimTam cheesecake! Was bloody amazing & I’m joining the gym this week!!

  5. Anne made her first appearance at our Fathers Day fiesta…and it won’t be her last!

  6. Yum! That looks like my kinda meal 🙂 I made a kickass orange and almond cake, it looked the business with candied orange slices on top and everything…thankfully it tasted as good as it looked!

  7. Peta musingsofamartin says

    This meal. YES.
    PLEASE share with me how you did the pork?
    I am struggling to find yummy tortillas here. I’ve made them a few times but still not quite hitting the mark.

    Happy Father’s Day Rob!

    Looks good Beth glad Rob was a happy man xx

  9. That looks so delicious 🙂

  10. Beautiful! Thank you for Anne. She made the dads in my family VERY happy 🙂

  11. Beth, what’s you secret to crunchy crackle? My hubby cooked roast pork last night for the first time and it was delish, (I’m not a huge pork fan) and the crackle was yummy too, but he saw room for improvement. I figure you are the go to girl on all things piggy.

  12. I make a similar salsa but you know what really elevates it? Cook the cobs of corn in a griddle pan, no need for oil, just make sure they are a little damp. When a bunch of the kernels are a bit blackened, they are done, no need for all the kernels to be dark or even touch the griddle. You will not believe the amazing tastiness of it, it just ramps up the salsa to another plane.
