Ingredients

  • 1.5 kg pork roast

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F).
  2. [Rubs hands together in anticipation] In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped leeks and cook until they're softened and caramelized, stirring occasionally. This will take about 20-25 minutes.

  6. [Pats the pork roast dry with a paper towel] Season the pork roast with salt and pepper.
  7. Spread the leek and peanut butter mixture evenly over the pork roast, making sure to cover the entire surface.
  8. Place the pork roast in a roasting pan and put it in the oven. Roast for about 45-50 minutes per kilogram, or until the meat is cooked through and the crust is golden brown.
