Pork is shit.

Chicken is good and the best for leftover usage.

Lamb/Beef are the best but lamb slightly edges it.


#7

Chicken: good old reliable chicken, can’t go wrong with that
Lamb: rubbish. Tastes like lamb.
Pork: might be fine, probably smells vaguely farty, crackling is fucking disgusting
Beef: it’ll be dry, won’t it. I know it doesn’t have to be but it will.
Nut: lol


#8

Honey roasted parsnips (Other please state)


#9

Mash. Mash as well as roasts.

Most important: an abundance of gravy.


#12

what the actual fuck is this?


#13

Fucking sickos


#14

Crackling is the only benefit to cooking pork in roast form, it doesn’t justify how bland and flavourless the meat is and that it has by far the shittest traditional accompanying sauce


#15

See I like mash but I think it’s pretty much a Trot defection to have mash as a go-to with a roast.


#16

Capital offence in my book.


#17

Belly pork? Belly pork is stupendous.

Chops are admittedly a bit shit.


#18

Smells disgusting, looks disgusting. Awful stuff.


#19

It’s better in barbecue sauce/Chinese form than as a roast though.

You’ve got to impart a lot of flavour onto pork, it’s basically a blank canvas that makes it shit as a roast IMHO.
