Prosciutto wrapped tenderloin

 

Prep time: 2.5 hours (including refrigeration)
Cook time: 20-25 minutes
Difficulty: Medium

Serves: 2-3

Ingredients

  • 100g pitted prunes, roughly chopped
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 ½ tablespoons (30ml) port
  • 2 sprigs rosemary, leaves finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 400g pork tenderloin
  • 4 slices prosciutto

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, mix together the prunes, shallot, garlic, port, rosemary, salt and pepper. Set aside until required.
  • Using a sharp filleting knife, trim and remove any silver skin from the pork tenderloin. To butterfly the pork tenderloin: Horizontally slice the pork fillet, slicing through the centre of the meat, but not all the way through. Open the pork fillet like a butterfly. Lay a large piece of plastic wrap on the bench. Place the butterflied pork onto the plastic wrap, cover with another sheet of plastic wrap. Pound the meat until it is approximately 7mm thick, trying to keep the meat an even thickness. Remove the top layer of plastic wrap.
  • Lay a fresh sheet of plastic wrap on the bench. Vertically lay the prosciutto onto the plastic wrap, slightly overlapping the prosciutto. Flip the pork tenderloin on top of the prosciutto, removing the plastic wrap that was under the tenderloin.
  • Spread the prune mixture evenly over the pork tenderloin. Starting at the longest edge, roll up the pork tenderloin tightly, using the plastic wrap as you roll. Once rolled, refrigerate for at least two hours to ‘set’ the meat. Alternatively tie the tenderloin with twine to keep it together when cooking.
  • Prepare the barbecue for indirect cooking over medium heat (190°C to 230°C). If using a Weber ® Q barbecue, set up your barbecue with a convection tray and a trivet.
  • Roast the pork over indirect medium heat, with the lid closed, until cooked through, about 20 minutes.
  • If desired, move the pork tenderloin over direct medium heat (180°C to 230°C) for 2 minutes each side, to crisp up the prosciutto.
  • Remove from the barbecue and leave to rest for 5 minutes before slicing

Chermoula Chicken with Coriander Yoghurt

Prep time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 60 minutes
Difficulty:   Easy

Servings:    4

Ingredients

  • 1x 2kg butterflied chicken
  • 2 preserved lemon quarters, flesh discarded, rind chopped
  • 1 cup fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 cup fresh coriander leaves
  • 2 long red chillies, stalk removed
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 juiced lemon and rind
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Coriander Yoghurt

  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh coriander
  • 200g plain yoghurt
  • ½ tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper

 

Instructions

  • To make the chermoula paste; blend together the preserved lemon rind, parsley, coriander, chillies, garlic, cumin, paprika, olive oil, fresh lemon juice and rind, sea salt and pepper.
  • Stuff the chermoula paste under the skin of the chicken breasts and legs. Spread the remaining chermoula paste over the skin. Refrigerate while the barbecue is preheating.
  • Prepare the barbecue for indirect and direct cooking over medium heat (180 to 230°C).
  • If using a Weber kettle: As per the Weber Red Gum Charcoal instructions, build a pyramid charcoal (equivalent to 2 to 3 charcoal baskets) on your barbecues charcoal grate with 3 firelighters underneath. Light the firelighters and wait 10 to 15 minutes. Using tongs and heatproof gloves, spread the charcoal evenly across one half of the charcoal grate. Place the cooking grill on the barbecue.

  • Place the chicken on the cooking grill, skin side up, in the indirect zone.
  • Place the lid on and roast the chicken over indirect medium heat for 50 to 60 minutes or until the internal temperature has reached approximately 64°C.
  • While the chicken is cooking, make the coriander yoghurt. In a bowl mix together the chopped coriander, yoghurt, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

  • Once the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 64°C, flip the chicken skin side down onto the direct zone (above the charcoal). Using the back of your tongs, gently press down on the chicken to ensure good contact with the grill. Sear the chicken over direct medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes or until caramelised to your liking.
  • Remove the chicken from the barbecue and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Carve and enjoy with the coriander yoghurt.
