This is the kind of food I go crazy for- its one of those stick everything into the oven dish and wait, which combines all flavors and has personality. It’s a great recipe obtained without too much trouble. You are in for a real treat!
- 8 fresh pork blades
- new potatoes, about the same size
- 5 cloves garlic, peeled and finely sliced
- 1 small bunch fresh rosemary, leaves picked, plus a few more small sprigs
- 3 thyme spings
- sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- extra virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 240 degrees C. Smash your herbs + garlic + oil + salt and pepper in a pestle and mortar. Keep smashing until the mixture is nice and fine, then rub half quantity all over the pork blades.
Pour some olive oil into a roasting tray. Place the pork and pour over small cup of water, scatter with the whole rosemary sprigs then put into your hot oven for about 15 min. I usually cover the tray while in the oven.
Meanwhile wash the potatoes (no need to peel them) and rub them with the remaining garlic-herb mixture. Mix well then set aside.
In 30 minutes you should have roasted potatoes and the best roast pork blades you’ve ever eaten.
