Taken from The Silver Spoon

25g butter
3 tbsp olive oil
1 fresh rosemary sprig
1kg hind loin of pork, chined
175ml dry white wine
4-5 tbsp hot milk
salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Heat the butter, oil and rosemary in an oval roasting tin, add the pork and cook, turning frequently, for 5-10 minutes until browned all over. Add the wine and cook until it has evaporated, then season with salt and pepper. Transfer to the oven and roast, turning occasionally and basting with hot milk, for 1 hour, or until cooked through.

Remove the pork from the oven and leave to stand for 10 minutes, then carve.

My Christmas lunch. In an odd way, I am relatively traditional with regards to what I eat on festive days. Pasta for Christmas lunch just doesn’t seem appropriate. There’s just something homey with roasting a nice slab of meat; natural flavours, and eating it with vegetables and potatoes.
