Pork Roast

Roasts are a total trap for me,  I just cannot avoid cooking and consumming them on a regular basis and if it involves a crunchy crackling coat of pork, they are more than welcome at my table. This dish is so delicious that you should give it a try one of these cold winter days - it's comfort food at its best. The meat, cooked slowly, is moist and tender, the seasoning of the potatoes is really inviting to a glass of good red wine and the steamed tasty and healthy brocolli will brighten the dish. Plus the meat is so affordable that you can easily feed a crowd. Invite people over and let them know that they'll just need to bring along their appetite, because the hospitality will be at its highest!

  • loin of pork sliced thin
  • garlic
  • chili
  • unsalted butter
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • broccoli
  • potatoes
  • salt
  • 1 cup and 1/2 of white wine

Peel the potatoes, cut them into cubes and cook slightly in a pan of boiling water and salt. Reserve after draining. Season the loin with garlics, chili, salt and olive oil. Pour a bit of grounded pepper over the potatoes and chunks of unsalted butter. Sprinkle everything with white wine. Take to a  pre-heated oven at 180 ° for about 2hs. In the last 10 minutes add the broccoli cooked in advance.

  • lombo de porco fatiado fininho
  • alho
  • piri piri
  • manteiga sem sal
  • azeite virgem extra
  • bróculos
  • batatas
  • sal
  • 1 copo e 1/2 de vinho branco
Descascar as batas, cortá-las aos cubos e cozer ligeiramente numa panela com água a ferver e sal. Reservar, depois de escorridas. Temperar o lombo com alhos com casca, malaguetas, sal e azeite virgem extra. Polvilhar as batatas com piri piri e pedaços de manteiga sem sal. Regar tudo com vinho branco. Levar ao forno pré aquecido a 180º cerca de 2hs. No últimos 10 minutos adicionar os bróculos previamente cozidos.


  1. Gosh..this dish looked so good! Makes me hungry now =D

  2. a good dish for the beginning of winter!:)

  3. Morning Aida! Oh, this is the ideal dish for a cold Sunday, I bet you have made happy many members of your family with this recipe!:) Looks delicious and so yummy! Have a lovely Wed, hugs! xo

  4. AI QUE FOME!!! Assados são o meu ponto fraco também, e desde que aprendi o truque de marinar o porco em molho de soja e salva, uiiii não quero outra coisa. Já as batatas no forno para mim têm de ter sempre alecrim, não sei explicar, mas sou viciada em alecrim nos assados eheheehh.

  5. Com este frio e esta chuva sabe tão bem assim uma refeição de forno, que maravilha!

  6. You get your carbs, protein, and veggies! I like that.

  7. This looks heavenly. I like roasts because they're easy and tasty and keep both you and the kitchen warm in the winter. Here's another one for you: take a pork shoulder (at least 5 lbs), rub it with oil, salt and pepper. Cook for an hour at 300 degrees. Then turn your oven down to 200 degrees and roast 8-12 hours (all day). REALLY good!

  8. Aida! That looks yummy! I am having roast pork today. We love it! I wish I had checked your blog before I started making mine. X

  9. Esse lombinho ficou uma maravilha
