Hi, Tintin, and welcome!

It would be helpful if you could post your recipe/method, so we can take a look at how you're cooking it currently. Also, what cut of pork you're using. I'm sure you'll get a lot of great info here!

Thumbs up crackli"'

rub the meat all over with olive oil and then sea salt, have a hot oven then after 1/2-3/4 hour, turn down to 180 or what ever medium is on your stove, don't poke it and it will be great. crusty61

Hi Tintin,

I usually use boneless pork loin. Set the oven to 250 degrees and wait for about 10 minutes while you rub your pork with lots of salt and pepper. Then put it in the oven for a good half an hour. After that lower the heat to 200 degree. Usually 2 Kg of pork, you need about 1 1/2 to 2 hours to roast.
