Spiced slow-roast pork
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 8 with leftovers
Spice paste adds a modern spin to classic roast pork and a cheap cut gives an impressive finish
- STEP 1
Heat oven to 230C/210C fan/gas 8. Mix all the ingredients (except the pork) in a small bowl, then rub all over the meat, getting in between the cuts in the skin.
- STEP 2
Lift the pork onto a wire rack in a roasting tin and place in the oven to sizzle for 30 mins. Reduce oven to 150C/130C fan/gas 2 and roast for a further 3 hrs. If the crackling needs a final blast to get it crisp, turn oven back up to 230C/210C fan/gas 8 for about 30 mins more.
- STEP 3
Remove the tin from the oven, cover loosely with a tent of foil and rest for at least 20 mins or up to 40 mins before carving.
