    • 2 small handfuls sugar
    • 6 pork loins

    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Wash potatoes and carrots, taking care to remove any bad spots and rooting.
    2. Arrange potatoes and carrots in roasting tin (at least 23 x 33 x 7.5cm). Salt potatoes and sprinkle sugar over carrots.
    3. Bake potatoes and carrots in the preheated oven until tender, about 15 minutes.
    4. While the potatoes and carrots are baking; trim excess fat off pork loins, rub garlic salt and mixed herbs to both sides of each loin, and set aside until potatoes and carrots are done. (Leaving a bit of fat on is good, it enhances the flavour.)
    5. When potatoes and carrots are cooked to desired doneness, add onion and pork loins, dab butter around potatoes, lower oven temp to 150 C / Gas 2 and bake for 15 minutes.
    6. Grind pepper over everything, serve and enjoy!

    Make it healthier

    Trim all fat off pork loins and eliminate butter, lessen the amount of potatoes to 2 per person and serve a nice salad with, still very tasty!

    Freezing tip

    If freezing this, I recommend freezing in individual portions, in microwave safe dishes (not all plastic containers are microwave safe, they could melt if you're not careful!)

    Drink pairing

    If you are a beer person, I would recommend a dark ale, if you are a wine person, a dry merlot.


    A dash is somewhere around a teaspoon, doesn't need to be exact. A handful would be approximately two tablespoons. {I wrote this recipe with ease of changing ingredient amounts to suit the number of people eating in mind. :) }
