  • Open the loin up using a sharp knife, releasing the eye slightly.
  • Mix the chopped oregano, orange zest, garlic and salt and pepper together.
  • Spoon under the eye of the loin and spread the rest over the inside of then loin.
  • Roll up and tie well with string every 2-3cm, not too tight.
  • Season the outside of the joint well with salt and pepper.
  • Place the potatoes, carrots and onions into a baking tray.
  • Top with the pork, and then add the orange juice, wine, boiling water and stock cube.
  • Cover with foil, bring to the simmer on the stove and pop into the pre heated oven and cook for 50 minutes to 1 hour nice and gently.
  • Once cooked lift off the foil and place the joint on a plate, cover with film and leave to rest for 30 minutes.
  • Check to see if the veg are cooked, if so strain in a colander add the peas and mix well. If they are not cooked, place into a saucepan with the juice/stock and simmer, until cooked.
  • Place the strained juice into a saucepan and bring to the simmer.
  • Thicken with a little cornflour or arrowroot, don’t go mad.
  • Slice the pork and serve with the cooked vegetables.
