First Ever Pork Roast… Here we go..

This was to be my first ever attempt at roasting some pork. It turned out pretty darn tasty!

What I used: Pork Loin, Balsamic Vinegar, Rosemary, Thyme, Garlic.

What I’ve experienced with pork it is that it tends to be quite difficult to get the right amount of ‘cooked’ as it is extremely prone to overcooking and tasting a bit dry. So it has to be done with care and needs to be checked on and turned regularly.

1. take a good pork loin

8. place the pork directly on the oven shelf with the tray of vegetables underneath so it can catch the juice from the pork whilst cooking

9. once cooked pour the vegetables back into the pot and theres the soup which can also be used as the gravy base

The other thing to note is that the tray of vegetables needs to be filled up with extra water regularly, or it dries up. I guess in future I could try making a large amount of pork stock and adding that in, instead of fresh water, to make it extra flavourful.
