Roast pork with potatoes and garlic

Here’s a great and simple way to cook pork. I used a roll of pork which is relatively cheap and can be bought from any good supermarket or food store.

Roast pork with potatoes and garlic

Roast pork with potatoes and garlic (uncooked)


1 kg rolled pork roast
1/3 cup of olive oil
500g of potatoes
10 cloves of garlic (unpeeled)
4 sprigs of rosemary
salt and pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to around 200 C

If it hasn’t been done already by the butcher score the pork skin with a knife to make the crackling. Rub the whole piece of meat with some of the olive oil and salt and pepper. Pop the meat into a roasting dish, cover with tinfoil and cook for 30 minutes.

Then add the potatoes, garlic and rosemary. Drizzle the rest of the olive oil over everything and season more with salt and pepper. I added other vegetables (like a traditional roast) into the pan – parsnips, pumpkin etc.

Cook without the tinfoil for another hour or so, or until the meat juices run clear when skewered. Rest the meat for 15 minutes.

Carve and enjoy!
