A rolled pork roast with apricot and prune stuffing. Cooks beautifully. We cooked this recipe for our Christmas dinner. So easy and simple- we had the butcher stuff and re-roll the roast for us!
- 2 kg boneless pork loin roast (4.5 pounds)
- 3⁄4 cup chopped pitted prune
- 3⁄4 cup chopped dried apricot
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon salt
- Preheat oven to 220°C (430F.).
- Remove the string from the pork roasting piece and lay rind side down on your chopping board. Place the chopped fruits in the centre of the pork and then re-roll and tie tightly with string. Tie at 2cm (1 inch) intervals. We took the chopped fruits to the butcher and had them do this for us.
- Dry the rind with some paper towel. Rub the rind with the oil and then sprinkle over the salt.
- Roast for 30 mins and then reduce the oven to 200C (390F). Bake for a further 1 hour 10 minutes. Test the pork is cooked with a skewer.
- Cover with foil and stand for 20 minutes before slicing.
- Serve with baked or steamed vegetables and apple sauce.
This is truly wonderful!!! I could not get pork loin with the rind on, which is a little disappointing as I love the crispy crackling, it reminds me of my nanna who always made it this way. I covered my pork with pancetta slices which made for a wonderful flavour. You just can't beat crackling. I loved the stuffing and I made mine with a gravy to accompany which was so yummy. I basted the loin with a mix of honey, red wine vinegar and garlic. I used these juices along with water and chicken stock to make a gorgeous gravy. I will really look forward to trying this one again once I can get pork loin with the rind on. A great post Jubes and a much enjoyed meal thanks!!
