Fire up the oven and stock up on applesauce: This winter is shaping up to be a season for cozy pork roasts, as rising meat prices push more home cooks toward “the other white meat.”
When the temperature drops, pork sales rise, with demand rising about 40% during the colder months, according to Coles’ figures, while Google searches for pork recipes typically jump 25% in autumn and winter.
Right now, supermarket prices for boneless Australian pork roast are down to $8 a kilo, making a crispy-tender pork roast even more comforting, particularly at a time when prices for meat soar.
High international demand through the pandemic and the lingering impact of drought have seen meat prices rise as much as 10 percent per kilo over the past year, according to figures from Meat and Livestock Australia, while farming is easiest, cheapest food and fast growth. keep your gluttonous barnyard friends within a more affordable price range.
Former MasterChef contestant Courtney Roulston is among those Australians who put more pork on their fork during the colder months, and a Sunday roast is a favorite for her and her partner Sophie King.
“Sophie is from the UK, so the Sunday roast is non-negotiable at our house,” says Roulston. “She loves classic rotisserie chicken or crispy pork and I usually make applesauce and different seasonal vegetables to go with it.”
In addition to being an affordable meal, leftover roast pork lends itself well to being reimagined throughout the week. “Roasted pork is an affordable option for families, and I often use the leftovers in sandwiches, fried rice, or ramen soups,” says Roulston.
As an ambassador for Coles, Roulston has been making the most of the supermarket’s KitchenAid cookware promotion, favoring the largest baking dish in the range for her weekly roast.
“I’m from a large family, so I’m used to cooking large roasts and generous meals to share,” she says. “The bamboo lids make them easy to transport to picnics or friends’ houses, as well as a great storage option without using plastic wrap.”
