    This is absolutely my favourite roast pork recipe. Simple but delicious. Use the dripping to make an incredible gravy.

    1. Preheat oven to 170 C / Gas 3.
    2. Heat a roasting tin over medium high heat until hot. Rub the pork joint with the marjoram, salt and pepper. Brown all sides of the joint in the hot roasting tin. Sprinkle caraway seeds over all and pour in enough water to come halfway up the sides of the joint.
    3. Cover and place in the preheated oven. Bake for 1 1/2 hours, or until an internal temperature of 70 degrees C is reached, about 30 minutes per 450g. Remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes before carving.

    I first let the spices "merry" for 24 hours. After browning the roast, I cook it using apple cider beer in the pressure cooker and served it with spatzle and cooked apples. Skim fat and reduce liquid for gravy. It's wonderful and is now my husband's favorite pork roast recipe. Jannette  -  06 Feb 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I cooked my roast in the crockpot and it turned out great. The gravy was also pretty tasty.  -  10 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
