Stuffed Meatloaf with Pulled Pork & Cheese
Instructions
  1. First, use the pork shoulder to make pulled pork. I used a stewing pan in which I seared the meat, then added some water and put the pan into the oven for about 6 hours, with the lid on.

  2. When the pork is about to be done, start to prepare the meat mixture. For that, put the ground beef, eggs & all seasonings into a bowl and mix everything thoroughly until it is a homogeneous mixture. You may use a food processor or simply mix it using your hands
  3. In the meantime, preheat your oven to 150°C (300°F)
  4. Take the pork out of the stewing pan / pot, remove all bones, pull the meat apart and keep it on a plate or in a bowl. Then, put a piece of cling film onto a cutting board. This helps to wrap the meatloaf up

  7. Then, use the cling film to wrap everything up. Start on the cheese side first to make sure that the cheese will be completely wrapped up and can't leak out

Recipe Notes

Of course, you may also use any other cheese you prefer, like mozzarella, parmesan or cheddar.

The pulled pork turns out great if you use pork neck instead of shoulder, too. It may be even better as pork neck usually is a little fattier then shoulder and therefore juicier & more flavorful.

Instructions
  1. First, preheat your oven to 90-95°C (200°F)
  2. Now, cut the big piece of cheese into small dices and bits
  3. Then, put baking paper onto a baking tray and scatter the cheese bits on it. Remember to leave big enough gaps between the pieces

  4. Afterwards, slide the baking tray into the oven and bake the cheese for 60-90 minutes in order to dry it. This time period may vary, depending on your oven and the type of cheese you use. If your oven doesn't have ventilation or if its thermostat isn't that accurate, I recommend to open the door about every 10 minutes or leave it opened with a small gap during the drying process
  5. Always have an eye on the cheese, look after it every 10-15 minutes. In case it starts melting too much, open your oven's door to let evaporated water and some heat out. Also, the cheese should continuously decrease the amount of bubbles that it throws (evaporating water)
  6. When almost all the water has evaporated from the cheese (no more bubbling), you can turn the heat up to 140-150°C (285-300°F) to make the cheese popping and give it some crisp
  7. Afterwards, simply take out the baking tray and let the popped cheese cool down for a few minutes

Recipe Notes

I had no instructions for these so I thought, I'd just figure it out on my own.

You need to evaporate the water from the cheese, therefore a temperature of about 100°C -or right below it- is needed. This way, the water evaporates, without the cheese melting too much.
