Maltese cooking it seems isnt just opening a bag of Malteasers, after a thorough search throug Maltese recipes I cam across the layered pork based dish Majjal Bhal Fil-Forn.
4 pork loin steaks
1 granny smith apple
1 large onion
2 slices of bacon
2 large baking potatoes
This is a really easy dish to make!
In a large casserole dish layer some of the cabbage and add the 2 slices of bacon (cut into pieces)
Grate a Granny Smiths apple and add that on top, followed by a layer of sliced onion.
Next up is a layer of the pork loin steaks
slice the potatoes and layer on top of the pork, add the 100ml of water the then give it all a good grind of salt & pepper. Add the nutmeg, smoked paprika & plenty of fennel seeds ontop.
Finally, drizzle a good glug of olive oil over the top and throw in plenty of dried cranberries. Put a lid on it and bung in an oven on 180C for 1hr 20mins.
Plate up a portion making sure to keep the pork loin whole & enjoy!
A rather tasty trip to Malta!
