Pork is a great barbecued. We usually just marinade it, but this recipe goes a step further by wrapping the marinades pieces in foil and adding potatoes and chutney. I don’t think it really matters which cut of pork you use and if you don’t want to barbecue you can always cook it in the oven.
Mum used to make this slice to take on picnics or to family gatherings. We always ate it cold and it was delicious. I don’t think Corn & Bacon Spread is available anymore, but that’s OK as Mum didn’t put it in anyway.
