Modern Recipe




  1. Use a mortar and pestle to a coarsely grind the spices.
  2. Prick the pork roast all over with a knife and marinade for at least 1 hour.
  3. Roast (20 mins/ 500 g + 30 min for med/rare) 220C for 10 minutes and then 190C til done to your preference.
  4. Use the meat juices to make gravy, strain and serve

For most feasts I would serve 1 1/2 to 2 lbs (750g to 1kg) per table of 8-10 people. Pickled vegetables, quince dishes and mustards would sit well on the table with this dish, with perhaps a lightly flavoured rice. A spicy shiraz, or a grenache blend red wine would be my wine of choice.
