Roast Pork with Lemon
Roast Pork with Lemon
(Arrosto con Limone Caramellato)
 
 
Ingredients:

2 and 1/4-lbs (1-kg) loin of pork, boned
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary needles, chopped
5 tablespoons lemon juice, strained
1 tablespoon brandy
1 lemon, sliced
6 fl oz (175 ml) dry white wine
2 oz (50 grams) sugar
Salt and pepper

Directions:

Make a few incisions in the pork loin, along the grain, using a small knife.

Insert a pinch of the rosemary needles in each incision until half have been used up.

Place the pork in a deep bowl.
 
Pour in the wine and sprinkle with the remaining rosemary.

Leave to marinate in a cool place, turning occasionally, for about 2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 230C (450F) Gas Mark 8.

Drain the pork, reserving the marinade, and tie neatly with kitchen string.

Place the loin in a roasting tin and roast for about 15 minutes.
 
Lower the temperature to 180C (350F) Gas Mark 4 and roast for another 30 minutes.

Pour the reserved marinade over the pork.
 
Season with salt and pepper.
 
Return to the oven and roast for about an hour more.

Dissolve the sugar in the lemon juice and brandy in a bowl.

Remove the roasting tin from the oven and skim off the fat with a table spoon.

Pour the lemon mixture over the pork.
 
Return to the oven and roast, basting every 10 minutes, until the sauce thickens and the meat is dark.

Remove the pork and leave to stand for just a few minutes.
 
Untie and carve it into slices.

Place on a warm serving dish.
 
Surround with the lemon slices.
 
Spoon the cooking juices over the meat, Serves 6.

That's it!
