  • 2 tbsp finely ground parsley leaves
  • 4.4 lbs rolled pork loin
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp rice bran oil
  • 2 tbsp fresh mint leaves (finely chopped)

Instructions
 

  • Finely chop the onion
  • Put a large pan on the stove, medium heat and melt the butter

  • Score the rind of the pork every 1/2 inch, then turn the pork over on a board, skin side down

  • Take the onion mixture and add salt/pepper along with the breadcrumbs, parsley, and mint. Mix them together
  • Press the stuffing over the pork and then roll it back up, and tie up with kitchen string (every inch or so). Place the pork on wire rack, in a large roasting pan. Brush the rind with oil and rub the sea salt over it
  • Roast the pork at 480F for 20 minutes, then turn the oven down to 350F for a further 1 1/2 hours. To check it is cooked through press a skewer in the center, the juices should run clear
  • Transfer the pork on to a plate and cover loosely with kitchen foil so it keeps warm. Allow it to rest for 10 minutes
