My roast pork in the pot recipe shows a quick roast preparation.

You can look over my shoulder while I cook because I added a Headcam Cooking Video.

As a chef, you face bigger challenges every now and then.

If a bus registers at short notice and another 40 guests storm into the inn, then you have to come up with something.

Such a situation requires a creative and flexible approach and a good idea.

The recipe is from my first cookbook:

The minute cooker tastes faster. and brings a roast pork to the table in a short time.

I wish you good luck!

1 Pack Half and half dumplings
1 Packet Sauerkraut – Pickled Cabbage
700 ml gravy
2-4 Slices meat from neck of pork (Or pork tenderloin)
1 Piece glove of garlic
1 Bunch Soup vegetables
2-4 Piece big potatoes
1 tbsp Sunflower oil
some paprika nobel sweet

Prepare dumplings

Prepare the potato dumpling mass based on the information on the packaging.

Portion evenly with an ice cream scoop, shape into dumplings and cook in salted water.

I make the dumplings rather small, then they are ready faster.

cook sauerkraut
Sauerkraut can also be prepared very quickly.

Prepare sauerkraut

Place the sauerkraut in a saucepan, pour over some of the gravy and simmer over high heat.

If you want it to be quick, I always cook the sauerkraut with the lid on and then let the sauerkraut juice reduce with the lid open.

The taste is stronger that way.

cut vegetables

3. Tips for Preparing Roast Pork in the Pot

The basis for this dish is pork neck, sliced.

Alternatively, you can also use pork schnitzel or pork fillet.

Of course, the dish can’t quite keep up with a traditionally prepared Bavarian roast pork because it lacks the crunch, but it’s still delicious!

The trick is to use various convenience products to get a roast on the table as quickly as possible.


You need for the quick roast pork in the pot

I am often asked in the comments about the preparation of the sauce.

Stock cubes and sauce cubes make our lives easier, but there is also the classic form of preparation.

A good sauce is made from roasted bones and roasted vegetables.

Since pork bones are hard to come by, you could pre-order these or use spare ribs.

Exact instructions for the preparation of a sauce for roast pork can be found in detail at Bavarian roast pork
