I have been using the oven quite abit recently. It have always enjoyed using the oven to cook- it’s clean and simple.
This was actually taken from Nigella’s website. I did have some tahini paste and wanted to use it. I was also curious to know how sesame will taste like with pork- should be good I imagine. Sesame goes well with most things!
I didn’t use pork belly- but used a leaner cut of pork roast instead. I also did marinate it overnight as instructed but added more lemon juice instead hoping that the acid will help tenderise the lean cut further.
The result is a rich roast. I didn’t think it was that rich! The taste was strong- so less is more for tahini paste I think. It’s a different type of roast- one that is very easy to do.
Tahini Roast Pork
1 kg of pork shoulder or pork belly
3-4 tablespoon of tahini paste
3-4 tablespoon of soy sauce
1 whole lemon juiced
Marinate pork with everything overnight.
Preheat oven 160C. Roast for 2.5 hours till done! Serve with veges.
