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

  9. Finally, bake the meatloaf in the oven for about 1 hour
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 170°C (340°F)
  2. Put the beef liver on a cutting board and beat the pieces with a meat hammer to make them flatter. You don't need to flip them, it is enough if you just hit from one side. Also, make sure that you don't hit too hard as the meat already is pretty tender and you don't want to create holes

  3. Next, add the seasonings, also from one side only - this will be the inside. Then, spread the spinach (e.g. with a spoon) on the pieces

  4. Afterwards, put the feta cheese on top. Place it centered and only on one half of the liver pieces. This way it is easier to roll them up

  5. Now, roll the liver up. Start on the side with the cheese to make sure it is in the center of the roulade

  6. After that, create a bacon weave of 4-5 slices on top of each roulade. Lift each one up with one hand while wrapping the bacon around the bottom with the other hand

  7. If you have small packets, wrap another layer of bacon around them to make sure everything is nicely wrapped without any big gaps and place the roulades on a baking tray with parchment paper

  8. Finally, put the baking tray into the oven and bake the roulades for 25-30 minutes until the bacon becomes brown and crispy
Recipe Notes

You probably could skip the meat hammer step if your beef liver pieces already are pretty flat (about 0.5cm / 0.2in of thickness).

If they are way too thick, lay them on the cutting board.
Then, cut from one side with a sharp knife until you nearly reached the end of the other side.
Now, you can simply fold out the pieces and have thinner ones.

At step 3 I used frozen spinach which I thawed & pre-cooked in the microwave for about 3 minutes while beating up the liver:

Of course, you may also use different stuffings.

One idea that I've had was pizza stuffing with tomato paste or fresh tomatoes, mozzarella cheese & Italian / Mediterranean herbs (oregano, rosemary, thyme). Maybe with some additional ground beef, pepperoni, fried chicken or even pulled pork.

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.
