Very Juicy and Tender Roast Pork

  1. Prick pork with knife several times so it cuts through, score the rind as well.
  2. Place in a large container then pour enough water to cover the meat. Now add some rock salt, it should be 1/4 cup of rock salt per litre of water. Leave it in room temperature for 12 hours.
  3. Drain pork then pat it dry, rub outer parts with minced garlic and freshly ground black pepper.
  4. Place in a 160C preheated oven, fat side up then roast. Roasting time would vary the formula would be 35 minutes for each 500 grams of meat. So in my case I had 3 kg pork so I roasted it for 3 hours and 30 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven then let it rest for 15 minutes before serving.

Yorkshire pudding

  1. Drizzle oil or fat drippings in a Yorkshire pudding or muffin pans, place in a 230C pre-heated oven for 10 minutes.
  2. In a mixing bowl lightly beat eggs then add flour, milk, sugar and salt, mix well until free of lumps.
  3. Place batter in a jug then set aside.
  4. Remove hot pans then pour the batter on each mould. Place the moulds back in the oven then bake for 20-25 minutes or until its puffed and golden brown in colour.
  5. Remove from pan then serve immediately, best consumed when hot.

Buttered Vegetables

  1. Steam or blanch the vegetables.
  2. In a heavy pan add butter, sugar and salt. Once butter had melted add the cooked vegetables and stir making sure vegetables are covered with melted butter.
  3. Serve.


Now once everything is ready, place everything in a plate then serve while Yorkshire pudding is warm. Serve with gravy on the side
