Soo... like this happened.
|Jurassic Pork Challenge - $49.50|
Hello friends. I present you with the 1.6 KG Jurassic Pork Challenge at Essen and that, was Jeroxie's and my 'birthday cake'. Please ignore my monstrous facial expression. The aim was to finish this 1.6 kg loaf of bread, filled with marinated slow-cooked pork and coleslaw in forty minutes. Yes, in 4 0 minutes. I like to name this loaf as Sir JP.
Clearly, we failed from the moment that wooden board was placed onto the table because we had probably spent a good 10 minutes on just taking photos of Sir JP.
|Look at the size of the sauces and that bread loaf|
|Sir JP looking oh so meaty|
Sir JP was huge and packed with so much meat. It was enough to feed 3 to 4 people. I don't know how anyone could do it alone but the novelty was worth trying for. IT EVEN HAS BACON EARS!! *squeal* We had to finish of all the pork (at the very least) but the chips just kept staring at me. They were calling out to me to eat them and of course, I fell weak at the knees. Who the hell says no to chips even if you are in a challenge.
The slow-cooked pork along their home made bbq sauce was sweet and juicy. The bacon were extra crunchy. It was almost as crunchy as a biscuit. The coleslaw was slightly plain but I think you do need something plain to help break up all the sweet and salty flavours.
One of the highlights of the night was definitely the sauerkraut that was in some of their other dishes. If only the Jurassic Pork Challenge came with less coleslaw and replaced it with some sauerkraut, I could of created a tastier sandwich with that bread loaf.
|The castle for Sir JP|
Last but not least, how could Sir JP live without it's castle. Ta-da! It even has it's own red carpet!
Gotta go eat!!
