pork roast - la tavola marche

 

 Pork Roast
Arista di Maiale

pork loin roast, tied (the butcher will do this for you)
rosemary
thyme
fennel seed
sage
red pepper flecks, to taste
rind of half a lemon, chopped
garlic
olive oil
white wine

Combine all ingredients (except the meat) and form a paste. Food processor,
mortar & pestle or a small food chopper will work, you can also do it by
hand.

Transfer above mixture into a bowl & add a glug or two of olive oil so the
paste is spreadable.

Work paste into meat evenly & refrigerate over night or at least 6 hours.

When ready to cook preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Generously salt the meat & place in a roasting pan.

Roast for the first 15 minutes at 425 degrees, remove from oven. Add a 3/4
cup of white wine

Then return to oven & lower to 350 degrees cooking for about 15 minutes per
pound,or until juices run clear.

Baste the meat once or twice during cooking.  (If the top starts getting
too brown, cover for the last bit. If liquid at the bottom of the pan cooks
out, add a little water.)

Once cooked, allow roast to sit for a few minutes. Remove string & slice
thinly. Use the pan juices as a sauce.

NOTE: pairs well with white beans.

Sounds and looks yummy, is there any chance I can find this recipe in a restaurant in Italy? I was going to see Italy this summer anyways so I think it would be perfect to try this recipe for the first time in Italy.

I since I love pork and periodically raise my own, I love any new way to eat it.  The recipe sounds wonderful and I;ll try it soon with the pork from last summer that still lingers in the freezer.  Thanks for the delicious recipe.  Tom
