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.

Sausage and stracchino piadini


You'll need

1 Spanish onion, coarsely chopped 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 300 gm canned chopped tomatoes 50 ml extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra to serve 3 pork and fennel sausages (about 120gm each), skins removed 200 gm stracchino or Taleggio, coarsely chopped 2 tbsp thyme leaves, plus extra to serve   Piadina dough 525 gm (3½ cups) plain flour ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda 115 gm cold lard, coarsely grated 1 tbsp olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • Process onion and half the garlic in a food processor, add tomato, season to taste and process until smooth. Set aside. Heat oil in a frying pan, add sausage and cook over medium-high heat until browned, breaking into pieces with a wooden spoon (2-3 minutes). Add tomato mixture and simmer until sausage is just cooked through and sauce is slightly reduced (2-3 minutes). Set aside.
  • 02
  • For piadina dough, combine flour, bicarbonate of soda and 1 tsp salt in the bowl of an electric mixer. Add lard and, using your fingertips, rub in to combine. Add oil and 200-250ml water, fit mixer with a dough hook and mix on lowest speed until combined (2-3 minutes). Dough should come together easily, if too dry, add extra water. Increase speed to high and knead until smooth and elastic (4-5 minutes). Divide dough into 6 even pieces, form into balls and roll each on a lightly floured work surface to 3mm thick. Cover with a tea towel to prevent drying out.
  • 03
  • Preheat a lightly oiled frying pan over high heat. Add a dough disc and cook until light golden in parts (1-2 minutes), turn and spread with a little sausage mixture, scatter with a quarter of the stracchino and a little thyme. Cook until underside is light golden in parts and cheese starts to melt (1-2 minutes). Season to taste, fold in half, turn and cook for another minute and transfer to a plate. Drizzle with a little extra olive oil, scatter with extra thyme and serve immediately. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
