      We need a 10 star option. Amazing! By far the best pork I have ever had, let alone made. I use a pork loin when I make this. There are only 2 of us so it's still enough food, and I can make it in about 45 minutes that way. (Roasting pan, uncovered, 2- 2.5 lbs, about 400*, about 45 minutes - We like our pork really done). The only other thing I change is that I use Syrah or Malbec from Frontera. It's pretty cheap but really tasty. We get a double bottle and serve it with dinner also. Anyway, this recipe is definitely restaurant quality and makes the perfect at-home date night. We usually have it with a salad and a rice dish, and oh yeah, plenty of wine!

      Delicious! The hint of anise in the pork is lovely, and it came out nice and moist. This recipe's a keeper!

      What an interesting dish!! Asian flavours with the rosemary & port!! Have to say I was a tad sceptical & didn't know what to serve with it. Took note of other reviewers & made your smashed taters (a long-time fave now)& that worked. I cooked about a kilo of stewing pork in my new pressure cooker (any Perthites here, the French lady at Subi has a great sale on now). Soo tender. If I'd been organised I was going to use the crock pot, but I think the pressure cooker gave a more tender result. Despite the mainly Asian flavours, the potatoes went well with it. My husband & son both absolutely RAVED about this dish & want me to make it weekly - and that's high praise indeed. Thank you, mate:)
