Dark Red Color of Saltpetre Cured Lamb Belly Pancetta

Insta Cure no.1, also called pink salt, is colored pink and contains 6.25% sodium nitrite and 93.75% salt. Cure no.1 is commonly used in bacon, hotdogs and other products that need less or no drying time. Insta Cure no.2 contains both sodium nitrite (at 6.25%) and nitrate (at 1%), with the remaining 92.75% being salt. Nitrates act as a time-released nitrite. Nitrates are employed in pancetta that requires longer periods of curing and drying. The time-release of nitrite continues to protect the meat over time. If you are making lamb pancetta which will be cooked, you can use cure no.1.  If you intend to make a traditional pancetta arrotolata, which is fully dried and eaten without cooking, you must use cure no.2. Eversince i lived in Indonesia and actually i’ve been too tired pursuing the pink salt, so i used old school saltpetre for  my home curing charcuterie.

Saltpetre Lamb Pancetta with Beautifull Marbling Dark Red Color!!!

The recommendation maximum ammout of saltpetre (Potassium Nitrate, Garam Sendawa in Bahasa) for dry curing meat is 500 ppm (part per million) or 500 mg of salpetre in 1 kg of meat. The total lamb belly weight is about 400 grams. The natural sea salt ammount for dry cured pancetta  is about 3% of the weight, you gotta take a close attention on it, 3% salt means 12 grams seasalt for 400 grams meat and 500 ppm of salpetre means 0,2 grams (200 mg) of salt petre for 400 grams meat. l also added the same ammount of palm sugar with the salt. Here’s the fun part, my digital weight scale can only measure 1 gram (1000 mg), eversince i need only 200 mg of saltpetre, so i need to put the 1 gram of saltpetre in a piece of paper and divided it into five equal part with my atm card  then using one-fifth of the the devided saltpetre. It made me thinking of myself “heck what i’m doing, my mom gonna be going crazy and beat the hell of my head because i seems like a crack addict doing their things ” lol

After measung the ammount of salt and saltpetre for curing the fresh belly, i mixed it all in and rubbed the belly with the spices to make sure all the curing mixture penetrated well into it. Nothing changes for a moment, but some liquid derived from the belly once the salt and sugar dissolved and the natural gamey aromas blend well with the spices, smells delicious already!!!

24 Hours Marinated or Cured Lamb Belly, Note the Ammount of Liquid Derived from the Belly

After the marinated and cured lamb belly sit in the refrigerator for 24 hours and flipped over several times, you may seen the liquid in derived even more now. The color of the meat is darker, while the texture is firmer, i guess 24 hours (one day) for a small 400 grams of lamb belly is enough to curing the pancetta properly, you may need more time for larger piece of belly.

Properly Washed, Drained and Patted Dry Cured Lamb Belly

The cured lamb belly washed gently over cold running water to discard the excess salt and curing mixtures. DO NOT OVER WASHED the lamb belly and NEVER SOAKED it in the water, unless the water penetrated into the meat and possibly spoiling your freshly cured pancetta, a little bit of remaining spices in the surface of the pancetta is just fine. The pancetta then patted dry with clean papper towel to remove the remaining liquid, this flat cured belly also called stesa pancetta di agnello.

Make sure you notes the weight of the cured pancetta before you hung it and calculate the 30 percent loss from the original freshly cured weight.  In my case, the freshly cured lamb pancetta weight is 360 grams (from 400 grams fresh lamb belly) and the 30% loss is 108 grams, which means my lamb pancetta is ready to be eaten raw when it’s weighed 252 grams.

The rolled lamb pancetta then hung to air dry curing in the room temperature in a subtropical or even better in a cold climates country. If you living in  a tropical country like indonesia, i guess it’s impossible to left the freshly cured pancetta hung to dry curing in room temperature because it’s too hot and too humid. Hence you must use your refrigerator to dry curing it, just made sure you cleaned out your fridge before using it as a curing chamber. Simply left the pancetta hung undisturbed in the fridge door in the ideal fridge temperature (about 1– 4°C or 33 – 39°F) and the fridge humidity in “dry mode”. Do NOT OPEN THE FRIDGE TOO OFTEN since the temperature will fluctuated and made the pancetta taste funny.

Fried Lamb Pancetta USING VERY-VERY LOW HEAT

Maybe you heard that nitrate are toxic, infact nitrosamines did but the nitrate all blamed for that. Nitrosamine formed when nitrate transform into nitrite then react with amino acids or very high heat. Nitrosamines are known to be powerful DNA damaging chemicals and resulting cell mutation and cancer. But don’t really bother about it, infact a single portion of spinach or celery contain more nitrosamines than you can imagine. So don’t be affraid to use salpetre once you follow the recomendation ammount consentration in your homemade pancetta because you don’t want to risk your life, but i suggest if you want to FRIYING the SALTPETRE (nitrate) CURED PANCETTA, please USE THE LOWEST GENTLE HEAT as possible to prevent the nitrosamine formation, so  NEVER  CHARRED the SALTPETRE (nitrate) CURED PANCETTA.

Soaking Germinated Brown Rice Overnight to Let the Rice Sprouting, Smelly Nutricious Goodness!!!

I’m using germinated brown rice for making this crayfish lobster risotto.

The brown rice need to be soaked in warm water overnight to let the seed germinating or sprouting before cooked. Sprouted brown rice risotto is a packed with more nutrients and enzyms such as γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) compared to the polished regular rice. Slow and low temperature of risotto is the best way to kept the super food germinated brown rice nutrients.

My Homemade Sun Dried Tomato give a nice tangy sweet fruity flavour into the risotto. Before using it in my risotto, you gotta made the sun dried tomato broth first. Simply finely chopped  1/2 cup sun dried tomato (i’m actually using half  sun dried tomato and half sun dried cherry tomato) and soaked it overnight in the refrigerator to soften and infused the flavour into the soaking water. Firstly in the morning, i add some water until the volume reach about 1500 ml and bring it to boil before poached the lobster. The sun dried tomato broth than reduced into half within the addition of remaining crayfish head and shell. The sun dried tomato and crayfish infused broth then strained with cheesecloth before used it to cooked the crayfish risotto.

Raw sprouted rice aromas may off the appetite for some people, but once cooked the smells is reduced and becomes milder, but if you want to get rid the aromas, you may using green tea solution for soaking the brown rice.

Roasted Ayam Betutu Wrapped in Salt Crust Dough

The salt crust dough is not edible because the generous ammout of salt on it made it taste overly salty. The commom salt crust chicken usually directly wrapped the chicken with the salt crust without any barrier to let the salt infused to the chicken.

I guess it will be quite interesting gig to encasing the betutu chicken in front of the guesses in the dinner table. The salt crust itself is not edible because it taste over salty

Making a delicious quail confit or other game bird is so easy. The rules of making confit is simple, simply submerged marinated quail leg and breast in 80-90ºC fat or oil for about 30-60 minutes depending the size and the toughness of the quail once it slaughtered. Never raised the oil temperature to rushed the cooking process because higher oil temperature made the water content in the quail meat boiled and evaporates, thus made the quail confit meat dried and tough even more. The oil or fat temperature for making quail confit is just enough to break down the quail meat without much drying (boiling) the water contents on it. So, basicaly the temperature and the period is the difference of deep frying and confit, confit is prolonged cooking in oil in a low temperature while deep frying is flashed dehydration cooking in oil in a high temperature.
