Oven Baked Pork Back
Instructions
  1. First, preheat your oven to 120°C (248°F) and put the pork back onto a baking tray with baking paper
  2. In the meantime, put the butter into a small microwave-suited bowl and melt it in the microwave. It takes about 15-20 seconds at 900W and the butter should not be too hot to touch it. Skip this step if you use olive oil
  3. Then, add all seasonings to the butter and mix them in with a spoon
  4. Now, pour the butter/seasoning mixture onto the pork back and use your hands to spread it. Make sure that the complete surface of your pork back is covered. Do it fast if you took the meat right out of the fridge, because then the butter will solidify again on its cold surface area

  5. Finally, put the baking tray into the oven and cook the pork back for about 3 hours

Recipe Notes

You can check if the pork back is done to your preference by using a meat thermometer.
If the core temperature reaches 70-75°C (158-167°F) the meat is medium-well. If its core temperature reaches 80-85°C (176-185°F) it is well done, but not as tender anymore.

In addition, you may also use the juice from the baking tray to make a delicious gravy sauce or simply pour it over the vegetables you may have made as a side dish.
For a sauce, simply fry 2 onions with butter in a pan (until golden brown), then pour in the meat juice and let everything cook until it is reduced to your desired thickness.
If you don't want to use onions, replace them with 100ml (about 3oz) cream in order to get thickness to the sauce.

Recipe Notes

You may also add a pinch of cinnamon or some pure cacao powder to the dough if you like.
For the cacao, I'd recommend using 1-2 teaspoons.

Another way to modify these cookies is adding about 1 tablespoon of low carb chocolate chips to the dough right in the beginning, simply sprinkle some on top before baking or making a chocolate frosting after the cookies are baked and cooled down.
