低溫慢煮豬仔脾配蘋果醬汁 (Apple-Braised Pork Shank – Sous vide method)

 

本以為這個寫好了的食譜不能出版,因為作者從馬來西亞回來後,在島內的超市沒有了豬仔脾,幸好前兩天返貨,這個食譜才得以出版。作者不清楚馬來西亞有沒有這種食材,所以本打算在離港前再看看,沒有這食材的話,就刪除這個食譜。

This recipe I have written before travel to Malaysia, however, when I back to Hong Kong, I can’t find any stock at supermarket in the island, I’m so disappointed, I wanna delete this recipe too.  Luckily, it have been restocked again these 2 days, so I can, finally, publish this recipe now.

 

最近作者所住的島內唯一超市發現新產品 – 豬仔脾,價錢又平,作者興奮到不得已,買回來後,用低溫慢煮做了一道菜式,簡單地配上薯蓉及烤西蘭花,已經係一道高級菜式了。在這篇中,作者只分享豬仔脾及醬汁的做法,其他簡單的配菜,我想不用再分享了。

Recently, I’m really happy that I’ve found a new product in the supermarket that I’m living, so I bought it back and cooked it using sous vide, served it with mashed potato and roasted broccoli.  Here, in this recipe, I will just only share the pork shank and sauce cooking.

 

我們做這個醬汁,需要大量蘋果汁,但作者不建議買來現成的,因為加工過,有其他化學物質,那麼是很不健康的,所以我們先來做個蘋果汁,讀者可以用慢磨機,這比較方便,如果用攪拌機,就得好像作者一樣,先過濾果渣,我們只需要蘋果汁。

For the apple sauce, we need apple juice, but I’m not recommend you to buy packed one since it is so many substitutes, better make fresh apple juice by your own.  If you have  juicer machine, it’s more convenient, because we just need the juice only; but if only have a blender, please use sieve to sift the juice out.

 

 

材料  (Ingredients):

 

豬仔脾 (Pork Shank) – 4隻

 

蒜頭 (Garlic)  – 4瓣

 

蘋果汁 (Apple Juice) – 400ml

原糖 (Cane sugar) – 100g

 

鹽 (salt)

黑胡椒 (Black pepper)

 

新鮮百里香 (Fresh Thyme) – 8支 (無新鮮可用乾的 – If you don’t have fresh, dried one also OK)

3. 準備平底鍋,開大火,下油,把豬仔脾煎四邊至金黃色,盛起,備用
Prepare a sauce pan, add some oil, and sear the pork shanks until brown, then remove it and set aside

 

4. 先把蘋果打成蘋果汁

5. 把蘋果蓉隔開,只用蘋果汁 (如果讀者用慢磨榨汁機,這步驟就可以省卻)
Use a sieve to sift out the apple pulp, remain the apple juice only (If you are using pure juicer, you can skip this step)

 

6. 同一個鍋,加入蒜頭、蘋果醋、芥末醬及糖,用中火煮至醬汁收成杰醬,放涼一會
Use the same pan, add garlic, apple juice, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard and cane sugar and cook it under medium fire until becomes a thick sauce even glaze.  Let it cool down a bit

 

7. 準備真空袋,把豬仔脾,醬汁及百里香放入袋內並進行真空封密,然後放入慢煮器,進入24小時慢煮
Prepare a sous vide bag, put in pork shanks, sauce and thyme (If you are using dried one, better seasoning it first before put into the bag), then let it start cooking for 24 hours

 

8. 翌日取出後,準備小鍋,先倒出醬汁,把醬汁用中火再煮回杰醬
Next day, prepare a small pot, pour out the sauce after cooked, then cook the sauce again until thicken

 

9. 豬仔脾上碟後,把醬汁淋上就完成。

溫馨小貼士 : 這個醬汁,亦可作為燒烤醬,作者試過用來烤豬肋骨,相比用BBQ醬無咁膩,酸酸甜甜好胃很多。
Tips : This sauce also can be replaced as BBQ sauce, it’s more healthy and more delicious.
