Absolutely mouth-watering, tasty Roast Pork with herbs and spices

This roast pork recipe is best served with baked potatoes and string beans, great for special occasions and definitely tasty. This style of cooking pork is very common as it also allows the pork to absorb the herbs and spices very well giving it that succulent flavour.



6-8 servings

4lb pork leg boned
4 tbsp soy sauce
3 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tbsp finely chopped celery
2 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp dried sage
1 tsp mixed spice
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp cider vinegar
2 tbsp pimento berry
salt and pepper depending on how much you should use (some persons have to watch their salt intake so it depends on your situation)


Step 1: Mix together soy sauce, garlic, celery, thyme, sage, mixed spice, rosemary, garlic powder, onion powder, vinegar, pimento berry, salt and pepper.

Step 2: Cut open pork, make small incisions in the meat and insert half of the mixture, then spread the rest all over. Rub the outside of the meat as well with some of the mixture. Let marinate for about 2 hrs, the longer it marinates, the more tasty the meat will be.

Step 3: Preheat oven to 190°C/375°F. Fold the meat as it was before and tie with cotton strings to hold together.

Step 4: Place in a shallow roast pan and put in oven for 15 minutes. Turn oven temperature down to 300°F, roast for 15-20 minutes to get it well done and still more tasty.

Step 5: Remove pork from oven after the 15-20 minutes, wrap in foil and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing to serve. Pour sauce on meat after slicing.
