Ingredients

  • 1 kg pork loin, scored and tied
  • water
  • 3 large sprigs rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon salt

Preparation method

Preheat oven to 240°C (220°C fan forced). Place pork on a trivet in a baking dish, skin side down.

Pour enough water into the baking dish so as not to touch the pork. Add rosemary to the water.

Bake for 20 minutes. Turn the pork so that the skin is facing upwards. Sprinkle with salt. Bake for a further 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 200°C (180°C fan forced) and cook for a further 20 minutes. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

Serve with roast pumpkin, potato, greens and gravy.
