The Loin is a primal cut that runs down the back of either side of the pig, from the shoulder to the hind leg.
This cut is the largest and leanest cut of the pig, with very little intermuscular fat marbling.
The Pork Loin Roast is not a traditional cut in South Africa as the Loin Chop has always been more popular for its convenience of cooking.
However, this lean cut of meat is prone to drying out if sliced into chops and fried or grilled.
We believe there is only one way to enjoy this cut of meat and that is roasted as the whole cut on the bone.
This ensures moist delicious meat with delectably crispy Crackling. Keeping the meat on the bone helps to impart even more flavour into the meat while insulating the the meat producing a more even cooked and juicier result.
