Overnight pork shoulder with fennel

There's something super-comforting about cooking overnight - you wake up in the morning to the fragrant dish, ready for a long lazy lunch ahead. Some bread, mustard and a leafy salad are all you need to serve with this beautiful cut, which is ideal for slow-cooking, but a potato or cauliflower puree would also be a welcome addition.

Method

  • 01
  • For lemon, honey and fennel pork skewers, combine pork, honey, lemon juice and fennel seeds in a non-reactive dish. Season liberally with freshly ground black pepper and toss to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for haydari, place yoghurt in a fine sieve over a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight to drain. Discard drained liquid and transfer yoghurt to a bowl. Add remaining ingredients, season to taste and refrigerate until required.
  • 03
  • Drain pork and thread 3 pieces onto a skewer, separating each with a folded piece of vine leaf. Refrigerate until required. Makes about 12 skewers.
  • 04
  • For köfte, combine ingredients in a bowl. Fry a small amount of mixture in a small non-stick pan to check for seasoning, then season mix to taste and roll mixture into golf-sized balls. Makes about 26.
  • 05
  • Preheat a barbecue or char-grill pan over medium-high heat. Cook skewered pork and köfte, turning occasionally until cooked through (15 minutes).
  • 06
  • For cucumber salad, combine ingredients in a bowl and toss until honey dissolves. Serve with köfte, pork skewers and haydari.
Note Caramelised red wine vinegar is available from select delicatessens. If unavailable, substitute with a good-quality cabernet sauvignon vinegar.
