A hearty and flavoursome meal for the whole family

Ingredients (makes 1 roast)

  • 1 Pork shoulder, excess fat trimmed ( take note of weight of meat as this will depend on the cooking time )
  • 10-12 sprigs Rosemary
  • !0-12 Sprigs Fresh oregano
  • 10-12 sprigs thyme
  • salt and pepper
  • red wine
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled an sliced into thick slices


  1. After trimming away excess fat , tie meat tightly with string, this will help it hold together during cooking
  2. Poke herbs evenly under the string all over. Make small slits evenly around meat and insert garlic slices into the slits
  3. when room temperature, season well with salt and pepper and fry in a little oil on all sides until browned .
  4. Pour in enough water and wine ( half and half) to go half way up the sides of the meat
  5. Cover and cook over med. heat approx. 30 minutes per 500g
  6. To test if meat is cooked , it will slide off of a fork that is inserted into it
  7. Tip off some of the liquid and make a gravy with the remaining juices.Place the liquid over a med heat, sprinkle plain flour over hot juices , whisking constantly until thickened slightly


This cut of meat is so tender and the herbs really add a flavor boost. Serve with roast veggies of choice.
