Why I Love This Recipe

A delicious pork crackle and roast.

To make the crackle extra crispy, rub salt and olive oil into the side of the pork the night before.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 x TBSP of chopped rosemary
2 x TBSP of chopped parsley
2 x TBSP of chopped sage
2 x Cloves of garlic
1 x TSP of fennel seeds, (crushed)
1/4 x Cup of olive oil - another 2 x TBSP extra for later
1 x 2KG rolled pork roast
2 x TBSP of sea salt
Cracked pepper to taste
6 x Small apples, (halved - royal gala/granny smith)
1 & 1/2 x TBSP of flour
3/4 x Cup of chicken stock


Preheat oven to 240°C.

Place chopped herbs, garlic, fennel, pepper and oil into a small bowl and mix into a paste. (Alternatively you can combine these in a pestle or food processor).

Rub underside of pork with the paste and place into a large roasting tray. Rub oil and salt into the skin of the pork.

Bake for 30 minutes, then reduce oven heat to 180°C and continue cooking for a further 1 hour.

Add the apple halves to the tray and cook for a further 30-40 minutes or until the pork is cooked to your liking and skin is crackled, and apples roasted.

Allow pork to rest for 15-20 minutes before slicing. Serve on a large platter with apples & gravy on the side.

Simply add 1 & 1/2 - 2 TBSP of flour to the tray juices, cook until thickened, then whisk in 3/4 of a cup of chicken stock in.
