Delicious roast loin of pork with flavorful oriental stuffing. Perfectly paired with mashed sweet potato and crispy fried pak choi.

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC / 160ºC fan / Gas 4. Weigh the joint and calculate the cooking time: 30 minutes per 450g / ½kg, plus 30 minutes (for medium).
  2. Place all the ingredients for the stuffing into a large bowl and mix together well.
  3. Dry the outside of the meat and score it deeply using a sharp knife.
  4. Carefully take the joint and make a deep, large cut into the joint at the fattiest point of the meat. Push the stuffing into the cavity created – any stuffing left over can be made into balls and cooked around the joint for about 30 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle the joint with oil and salt and rub into the fat. Place on a rack in a roasting tin and open roast in the oven for the calculated time.
  6. Serve with mashed sweet potato and crispy fried pak choi.
