Roasted Pork Loin with Loaded Goats Cheese and Dill Skins

Receita em Portugues clique AQUI

This is definitley a treat for all my followers and visitors.

Ahhh!! Dill and (French) Goats Cheese, as soon as I saw this I had to use it, especially in view that the previous day I had roasted a pork joint to eat today and I still didn't know what to do as an accompaniment so I decided for loaded skins, but I didn't want to do the traditional Bacon and cheese, as everyone normally does that.

So this is really two recipes, one short and longer, the pork joint no recipe is needed. As for that all you need is a pork joint from any main supermarket and you unfold it and rub in and on it a
paste made of: (a bunch) coriander + garlic (2 cloves) + sea salt (1 soup spoon) + ground black pepper (1 tea spoon) + chili powder (1/3 tea spoon) + a little olive oil.

After that is done let it marinate for at least 30 minutes, then stick it in a preheated oven to 130c for about 1 hour, remember should be in a small container as the juices will further help it cook, also slow cooking is imperative as this will leave meat more tender.
After initial cooking I left the meat rest from one day to the other, and then blasted it for 15-20 on a 200c oven the crackling goes very crispy as you want it to be, so prior to cooking diamond scoring is important too. See picture bellow.

The potatoes now they were just outta this world, and I am not one to brag, actually I invited my sister for dinner and she normally eats very little but not this time.

Recipe Ingredients:
  • 150-200grs of "French" Goats cheese
  • 1/2 glass of cream
  • 1/2 glass of milk
  • 2 soup spoons of butter
  • 1 bunch of dill
  • about 1kg of potatoes (red)
  • salt and pepper to taste
Roast the potatoes it will take about 1 hours 200c, once done cut the potatoes in halves with a spoon scoop the potato interior from each half into a bowl, leaving virtually just the skin.

Mash the potato with a masher and throw in the goats cheese in bits and the butter also seasoning (salt and black pepper to taste), give it a stir the goats cheese should melt as the potato is hot and will start going very thick now throw in the rest, the dill, the milk and the cream (double is best) and stir it all very well.

Spoon the mixture back into each potato and on the top sprinkle a little more salt and freshly ground black pepper, put it back in the oven for 15 minutes more 200c and it is done.
See, when you put the potatoes in for the 15 minutes it is at this time that you can reheat and cook the crackling of the pork as previously mentioned, as this way both things are ready at the same time. DELICIOUS really is.
You will notice I also cooked some halves, corn-on-the-cob with a little melted butter on top they were great too.
