Herbed neck of pork
4-6 portions
1 kg neck of pork
1 lemon
2 cloves of garlic
2 tbsp fresh rosemary (or 2 tsp dried)
1 tsp dried lavender flowers
salt flakes
freshly ground black pepper
1. Heat the oven to 200°C. Wash the lemon and grate the rind. Peel the garlic.
Put the lemon rind, garlic, rosemary, lavender and 2-3 tsp salt flakes onto a chopping board.
Chop the mixture roughly and pat it firmly all over the meat. Season well with black pepper.
Squeeze over a little lemon juice.
2. Stick a thermometer into the thickest part of the meat.
The meat is ready when the temperature reaches 85°C, about 1 hour and 10 minutes.
Leave the meat to rest for a few minutes before carving.
If you want the meat to be even juicier, you can roast it at a lower temperature, 125°C.
This will of course take longer, but it can be worth it if you have the time.

Baked pork tenderloin with garlic
4 portions
500 g pork tenderloin
3 cloves of garlic
1½ sachets garlic marinade (Santa Maria)
1 red bell pepper
10 sun-dried tomatoes in basil oil
1 onion
125 g garlic cream cheese
Pour the marinade into a plastic bag, put in the pork and seal the bag.
Refrigerate for about 24 hours.
Turn the bag a few times to allow the marinade to penetrate the meat evenly.
Use the basil oil from the sun-dried tomatoes to fry the tenderloin until golden brown.
Remove the meat from the pan. Make a deep cut along the tenderloin.
Chop the red pepper and onion into ½-cm pieces.
Fry the vegetables until soft in the same pan as was used for the meat. Use more oil if necessary.
Add 3 crushed garlic cloves.
Remove the softened pepper and onion (put the pan aside in the meantime),
shred the sun-dried tomatoes and mix all together.
Place the tenderloin on a large piece of tin foil in a roasting pan.
Shape the tin foil into a ’’boat’’ around the meat, to prevent the meat juices from running out
during cooking.
Fill the slit in the meat with cream cheese and vegetable mixture. Press the meat together
so that the gap is no more than 1 cm.
Place any excess vegetables on top of the meat. Spoon 2-3 tbsp basil oil over the meat.
Place in the middle of the oven, 175° C, and roast for about 30 minutes.
Pour the meat juices from the foil boat into the frying pan that was used earlier.
Stir in ½ sachet of garlic marinade and some crème fraiche.
Allow the sauce to simmer and serve warm with the stuffed tenderloin.
French fries are a delicious accompaniment.
