roast pickled pork

My butcher put me on to this. He asked me how I did my pickled pork and I told him my slow cooker trick. He advised me to try it baked like a ham. So I did, and here she is! It was lovely. Definitely would be a brilliant twist to a traditional Christmas ham, and it will be better on the purse strings too. Give it a go, it is beautiful!


One whole pickled pork round (2Kg or so)

Olive oil





Place a half cup of water in a baking dish. Place the pickled pork in the dish, drizzle with olive oil and season heavily with salt. Roast at 160 degrees Celsius for about 2.5 hours. At about the half way mark spoon the liquid in the pan on top of the pork. Serve with vegetables or keep for later. I portion mine and we have it with vegetables one night and then as a pizza topping over the weekend.
