Recipe of the month - FRUITY ROAST PORK LOIN

AMOUNT INGREDIENT AMOUNT INGREDIENT
  Pork loin filled with fruity stuffing 50 ml Oil
1 Medium carrot 1 Stick of celery
1 Onions 200 ml Chicken Stock
2 tsp Corn flour 50 ml Water
4 Apples small & halved with seeds scooped out 1 Bunch rosemary
  Salt & Pepper to taste

METHOD

- Weigh pork & calculate cooking time as follows – 15 minutes at 220°C; then a further 30 minutes per 500 g at 180°C.
- Rub oil, salt & pepper into score cuts in the rind
- Push some rosemary pieces randomly into the score cuts
- Chop the celery, onions & carrots into large chunky pieces
- Scatter them on the base of a roasting tray, mixed with remaining rosemary & oil
- Place prepared pork on top of the vegetables and place in a preheated 220°C for the calculated time or until the skin bubbles and begins to brown
- Reduce heat to 180°C & cook, basting meat regularly
- Approximately I5 minutes before the meat is cooked add apples skin side down
- Spoon over some pan juices and continue to cook, turn the apples to color both sides
- To test if pork is cooked, insert a fine skewer into centre portion and the juices should run clear (if not continue cooking until they do)
- Alternatively use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. It is done when it reaches 80°C
- Transfer meat & apples to a plate and cover loosely with foil and leave for 15 minutes in a warm place
- Pour chicken stock into the hot roasting dish and simmer for 5 minutes, strain juices and place vegetables & apples back in the oven
- Heat juice in a saucepan, add any juices collected under the resting meat then thicken slightly with a mixture of corn flour & cold water
- Serve roast with apples and sauce

Tip: For extra-crunchy crackling, remove carefully from the meat, in one piece, once it is cooked. While the meat is resting return to the oven until crisp enough.

ROASTING TIP
Remove the meat from the fridge at least 30 minutes prior to cooking.

All cooking times are based on an average size pork loin. Cooking times may change if the pork diameter is very large. Always look for clear juices or a core temperature of more than 75°C.
