Things You'll Need
5 pounds bone-in pork sirloin roast
1 tablespoon salt
5 garlic cloves
2 1/2 teaspoons pepper
2 1/2 teaspoons dried rosemary
2 1/2 teaspoons dried sage
2 tablespoons olive oil
Mortar and pestle
Bone-in pork sirloin roast is an inexpensive and delicious cut of meat that contains parts of the hipbone and backbone. Although it is an excellent quality cut of meat, it can be tricky to slow cook the meat through to the bone without overcooking the outer part of the roast. The way around this is to use the natural heating of the bone to help cook the inner meat of the roast. Combined with a garlic-herb marinade, you can cook a perfectly cooked, succulent slow cooked bone-in pork sirloin roast.
Using the mortar and pestle, mash the garlic cloves and salt together until you create a paste. Add the pepper, rosemary, sage, and oil. Continue to mash until a thick paste forms and all of the ingredients are combined well.
