Pot roasted free range pork in cider

Traditional British pork roast with a traditional English cider.


For the pork

  • 1.5-2kg 3-4lbs pork loin, boned and rolled
  • 1 celery stalk, roughly chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 300ml / 10fl oz Westons Vintage Organic Still Cider
  • 1 onion and carrot freshly chopped
  • Few springs of fresh thyme


Pre-heat the oven to 200°c / 400°f / Gas Mk 6.

Score the fat in a criss-cross pattern with a knife, season and cook the pork in a roasting tray, fat side up, for 30 minutes. Turn the pork over and cook for an additional 15 minutes.

Lower the oven to 170°c / 325°f / Gs Mk 3, and add the vegetables and thyme to the meat and return to the oven.

Spoon some cider over the meat every so often until it’s all used, draining away any excess fat during cooking.

Cook fat side up for the last 45 minutes.
