Huaso Rolled Pork Recipe


  • 1 kg of pork pulp
  • 500 g of pork skin
  • 250 g of bacon or pancetta
  • 100 ml of vinegar
  • 4 beef broth cubes
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tablespoons of red chili paste
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • Pepper
  • Cumin


  1. Cut the pork pulp and bacon into long strips about 1 ½ centimeters wide. Cut the leather with a sharp knife into a square about 25 centimeters wide.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the vinegar, salt, crushed garlic, half of the chili paste, add pepper and cumin to taste, and place in a baking dish along with the pork pulp and bacon, spread the mixture evenly, cover with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours.
  3. To assemble the roll, place the piece of leather on a clean work surface and alternately arrange the strips of pulp and bacon side by side across the width, cover with a little chili paste to taste, roll up and tie the meat and leather tightly with kitchen twine, from end to end, giving it the shape of a traditional roll.
  4. Boil 4 liters of water with the beef broth tablets, dissolve everything well, carefully submerge the roll and cook for at least two hours or until it is thoroughly cooked. Cool in the same broth, drain off the excess water, and spread with the remaining red chili paste.
  5. Serve the huaso roll hot or cold, preferably accompanied by boiled potatoes, spicy mashed potatoes, and/or a freshly made Chilean salad.

Benefits of eating Pork

Pork provides the necessary proteins for proper bone development during growth. Its consumption increases the feeling of satiety while providing enough vitality due to its high thiamine content, necessary for carbohydrate assimilation in the body. Every 100 grams of pork contains only 2.4 grams of saturated fat, less than 10% of what we can ingest daily.

Did you know?

The origins of the huaso rolled pork date back to the Spanish Colonial period in Chile, when the high society of that time decided to adopt it as a culinary specialty, which would later be adapted to the ingredients typical of Chilean cuisine.
