Category: Italian

 Ingredients List

  • 2 3/4 lb Loin rack of pork, weight
  • -after skin and
  • Most of the fat removed
  • 2 Sprigs rosemary
  • 1 Clove garlic
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • 6 tb Extra virgin olive oil
  • 35 oz New potatoes


The pork must be cut from the bone using a sharp knife. As the seasoning is
placed between the bone and the meat, it is important to keep the bone in
one piece. Ask your butcher to do this for you or just take your time
: it is quite simple. Chop the rosemary and garlic very fine, season with
salt and lots of black pepper, and mix to a pate using 1-2 tablespoons
olive oil. Spread this on the inside of the bones and replace the meat. Tie
the joint and bones together with st5ring. Season outside of the pork
generously. Cut the scrubbed potatoes into large dice and toss with a
little olive oil. Place the meat ribs down, in a large roasting dish and
scatter the potatoes around it. Pour over the remaining oil and place in a
heated oven 180C / 350F. Cook for 30 minutes, then baste the meat and
potatoes and turn the heat down to 160 C/ 325F. Baste again after 30
minutes. When the roast is cooked, remove the pan from the oven. Transfer
the potatoes to a serving dish and place in the switched-off oven to keep
warm. Let the pork rest in a warm place for 10 minutes before snipping the
string and carving. Cut the bones up and serve these, too. The meat on them
is delicious.
