This is a popular Russian recipe of roast pork stuffed with cheese and tomatoes. For best results, remove the foil to let the meat brown just before it is done.
1 person made this
1.5kg pork roasting joint
2 onions, sliced
3 tomatoes, sliced
150g grated cheese (e.g. Gouda)
1 clove garlic, crushed
salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons prepared mustard
Method Prep:15min › Cook:2hr › Ready in:2hr15min
Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
Take a whole side of pork and cut it into 1cm slices, stopping at about 2cm from the bottom of the roast (slicing so that the cut resembles a book).
Stuff every slice of pork with onions, and then with tomatoes and cheese. Crush the garlic and mix with salt (1/2 teaspoon), then add pepper and mustard. Cover the pork everywhere with the mustard and garlic mixture. Press the slices firmly together, then wrap in foil.
Roast for approximately 2 hours. To let the meat brown nicely, unfold the foil 20 to 30 minutes before the pork is ready.
