  • Cook: 5 Hours
  • Portions: 6-8

Ingredients You'll Need

  • 2kg (4.4kg) Meridian pork loin roast
  • FOR THE BRINE:
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tsp salt
  • FOR THE SAUCE:
  • 1/2 fresh pineapple, in chunks
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 3 cloves crushed garlic
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp Chinese 5 Spice
  • Juice from half a lime

Directions

  1. For best results, brine your roast in a salt and water mixture overnight in the fridge.
  2. The next day, remove and rinse the roast, and place in a large, oven-safe saucepan with a lid.
  3. Mix the pineapple, garlic, ginger, 1 cup coconut milk, rice vinegar, sesame oil, pepper, salt and spice together in a blender until smooth. Pour over the roast and marinate for 2-3 hours.
  4. Preheat the oven to 325F. Place the covered roast in the oven for a total of 5 hours, basting with the cooking liquid every 30 minutes or so.
  5. After 2.5 hours, crack the lid open.
  6. For the last 30 minutes, remove the lid completely.
  7. Remove the roast from the oven and place on a serving platter. Cover to keep it warm.
  8. Add lime juice and rest of coconut milk to the cooking liquid in the saucepan. Once combined, serve with the roast and enjoy!

Is it really 5 hours that the roast needs to cook? Seems like a long time?
