    Serves: 5 

    • 1kg boneless pork loin
    • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
    • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
    • 5 to 6 allspice berries
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • salt and pepper, to taste
    • 250g butter
    • 1L milk

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:1hr15min  ›  Extra time:2hr marinating  ›  Ready in:3hr30min 

    1. Rub the spices all over the pork and chill in the fridge for 12 hours (or at least 2 hours). The longer the meat has to marinate, the tastier it will be.
    2. In a pan melt the butter and brown the pork on all sides.
    3. In a deep saucepan (or casserole dish) bring the milk to the boil and place the pork inside. Simmer for 1 hour, gradually add butter as the milk evaporates. Stir often, because the mixture will thicken and the pork may stick to the bottom.
    4. Slice the pork, place on a platter and pour sauce over. Serve with potatoes and green salad.
