This is a microwave recipe for small cuts of pork loin (0.5 to 1 Kg). So easy that even uni students can enjoy a home-cooked roast!

Clarence "CJ" Spencer

Serves: 3 

  • 1 (1 Kg) boneless pork loin
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) water
  • 3 onions, halved
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:22min  ›  Extra time:15min resting  ›  Ready in:47min 

  1. Pat the pork roast dry with a paper towel and pierce the meat at 2 cm intervals with a knife or fork. Insert leaves of rosemary in the perforations.
  2. Place the onion halves into a glass 23 or 25 cm pie dish. Set the meat on top of the onions so they act as a roasting rack. Pour the water over the meat and season with salt, pepper, thyme and cumin.
  3. Cook in the microwave at full power for 16 minutes (or about 8 minutes per 500g). Turn the roast over and cook for an additional 6 minutes. Let the roast rest for about 15 minutes before carving and serving.

Very nice. So happy with this recipe it's a keeper. The pork was unbelievably succulent and juicy. By far the easiest roast I've ever made. Thank you very much indeed! Will do it again. - 20 May 2012
