Roast pork in a pot - tender and juicy

Roast pork in a pot | ORYOKI recipe collectio

Pork roast can be prepared in various ways, from simple traditional recipes to modern variations with exotic spices or unique sauces. The classic pork roast is often seasoned with spices such as caraway, marjoram, and garlic, giving it a rich and hearty flavor. It is a versatile dish suitable for many occasions, from family meals to celebrations and special events.

Which types of meat are suitable for a delicious roast

  • Beef: Beef roast or beef fillet are popular beef roasts.
  • Pork: Pork roast, pork fillet, or pork neck are suitable for roasting.
  • Lamb: Leg of lamb, lamb loin, or lamb fillet are popular lamb roasts.

In general, any piece of meat that has enough fat and connective tissue to remain juicy and tender when roasting is suitable. A good roast should be slow-cooked at low temperature to keep the meat tender and juicy. When buying meat for roasting, follow the recommendations of your butcher or meat dealer to achieve the best results.

Preparing roast pork in a cast-iron pot

If you want a tender, juicy, and flavorful result, consider using a high-quality cast-iron pot for roasting pork. Cooking pork roast in a cast-iron pot offers several advantages:

  • Even Heat Distribution: Cast-iron pots can efficiently store and evenly distribute heat. This ensures that the pork roast is cooked uniformly and gently without drying out in some areas.
  • Moisture Retention: The lid of the cast-iron pot helps retain the moisture and flavor of the pork roast, making the meat juicier and more tender.
  • Durability: Cast-iron pots are highly durable and, with proper care, can last a lifetime. This makes them an investment that pays off in the long run.
  • Iron Intake: Iron is an essential nutrient needed for the formation of hemoglobin in the blood, contributing to the body's oxygen supply. Regular use of cast-iron pots can help provide the body with sufficient iron, as iron from the pot can diffuse into the food due to heat and moisture.

Mushrooms and apples are two ingredients that may not seem like an obvious pairing at first. However, they can harmonize quite well in terms of flavor, especially in certain recipes like our pork roast. Both ingredients have a certain level of acidity: mushrooms have a slightly acidic taste, while apples, due to their fruit acid content, can also have a tangy flavor. This acidity can contribute to complementing the flavors of both ingredients and blending well together.

List of ingredients
800g pork neck piece
10 pieces mushrooms
2 pieces apples
150ml white wine
2 tbsp oil (olive oil or sunflower oil)
3 tsp salt
some black pepper
some marjoram and caraway seeds
one bush thyme
moderate amount mustard seeds if required

Step 1

For better flavor development, it is best to season the meat with salt and pepper and, if necessary, marjoram and caraway a day before preparation. This gives the spices and aromas time to penetrate the meat and develop. Cover the meat and leave it to rest in the fridge until the final preparation.

Remove the meat from the fridge about 30 minutes before preparation. In the meantime, halve the mushrooms and cut the unpeeled apples into 3 cm cubes.
