Umm... the smell of fresh herbs and slow roasting pork!!!
I Wanted to find a new way to cook pork, so went searching this morning and found this great new recipe on the Notebook Website http://www.homehints.com.au/food+recipes/ and came across this fantastic recipe and it's so so easy that I wanted to share it!!
Slow Roasted Pork with Thyme and Marjoram
1 x tablespoon fresh thyme
1 x tablespoon fresh marjoram
3 x garlic cloves crushed
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
1/4 cup of olive oil
1 tablespoon of rice vinegar
Pork - approx 1.5kg (no bone)
(we used 2 tablespoons as we used a little more of the herbs to make a crust)
Preheat the oven to 220 degrees
Combine thyme, marjoram, garlic, salt, oil and vinegar in a mixing bowl.
Add pork and coat well
Let the pork marinate for approx 2 hours
Place pork on a rack in a baking tray and pour over any remaining mixture. (I lined our baking tray with baking paper to keep the excess mixture from drying out).
Cook at 220 degrees for 30mins
Then reduce temp to 150 degrees and roast for a further 3 1/2 hours or until very tender.
Remove from oven - cover with foil and allow to rest for 10-15mins
Pour over any excess sauce when serving.
Hope you enjoy this as much as we are!!
