Otway Pork Roast With Maple

Otway Pork Roast With Maple

Serves: 4–6
Time: 1 hour 25 minutes


  • 1.3 - 1.5 kg boneless rindless pork roast
  • (loin, rump, leg or scotch)
  • 100 g rindless streaky bacon
  • 200 mL maple syrup
  • 1 kg peeled sweet potatoes, cut into large pieces

Cooking Instructions:

Arrange the bacon over the pork roast and secure with string or toothpicks.

Place the pork roast into a small deep baking dish and pour maple syrup over.

Bake your pork roast in oven pre-heated to 220oC for 20 minutes, then reduce temperature to 180oC.

Add sweet potatoes to baking dish and roast for a further 45 minutes or until pork is cooked to your liking.  Baste occasionally.

Slice pork roast and serve with sweet potatoes and steamed green vegetables.  If you wish, drizzle with pan juices.

Give the pork roast a slightly more sophisticated flavour - substitute slices of prosciutto for the bacon.
