Gotcha Pork Roast
- Place the peeled/cut potatoes inside a large pot and fill with cold water until the potatoes are fully submerged.
- Add 1 tsp salt, a pinch of pepper, 1 sprig of rosemary and a whole garlic clove to the pot and place it on the stove.
- Bring the water to a rolling boil and cook until the potatoes are soft to the core. (This should take about 10-15 minutes depending on the size.)
- Pour the potatoes into a colander to drain the water, give them a shake and discard the rosemary and garlic clove. Let the potatoes sit for 1-2 minutes to let out the excess steam.
- Transfer the potatoes to a large mixing bowl and mash until smooth.
- Add 50ml of whole milk and 1 tbsp unsalted butter to a small microwavable bowl. Cover the bowl and microwave for 40 seconds at 500W or in intervals until the butter has melted.
- Add 1 tsp of chicken bouillon powder to the warm milk and butter and mix until dissolved.
- Pour the mixture into the potatoes and mix until smooth. Cover the bowl and set aside for later.
- Heat a frying pan on medium and add 1 tbsp unsalted butter and 1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce.
- Once the butter is melted, add 1/2 a diced onion and fry until slightly softened.
- Add 3 diced garlic cloves and 1 finely diced eryngii mushroom and fry everything together until the onions start to turn translucent.
- Remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.
- Transfer the contents of the pan to the bowl of mashed potato along with 1 tsp of parmesan cheese and a sprinkle of dried parsley.
- Mix until all the ingredients are evenly distributed, cover the bowl so the mixture doesn't dry out and then leave to cool to room temperature.
- Take a sheet of plastic wrap and place the mixture in the middle. Shape into a thick cylinder and firmly wrap.
- Chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
- Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius. (Approx 355°F)
- Remove your mashed potato from the fridge and wrap each end with 1-2 rashers of bacon. Wrap the rest of the bacon (4 long rashers) around the cylinder of mashed potato and try to make sure there aren't any gaps.
- Wrap the bacon with butchers twine to keep it secure and place 1 sprig of rosemary on the top.
- Transfer the gotcha pork roast to a roasting tin and place it in the oven on the top shelf. Bake for 20 minutes or until the bacon is golden.
Red Wine Sauce
- Heat a small saucepan on medium and add 1 tbsp butter.
- Once the butter is melted, add 150ml red wine, 1 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp mirin and 1 tsp sugar.
- Bring to a boil and allow it to bubble for a few minutes to burn off the alcohol in the wine and mirin.
- Remove from the heat.
- Take the gotcha pork roast out from the oven and allow to rest for a few minutes.
- Cut off the butchers twine and transfer it to a serving plate. (Use a spatula to help you lift it.)
- Drizzle with the red wine sauce.
Gotcha Pork Roast can be eaten on its own (1 serving) or with salad/vegetables (2 servings).
