Australian pork with port and coffee sauce

Yield: 8 servings

Measure Ingredient
4⅜ pounds Pork loin, boned
1 cup Strong coffee
½ cup Cream
⅓ cup Port
2 teaspoons Sugar
¼ cup Water
2 teaspoons Cornstarch

Preheat oven to 350F. Remove rind from pork and trim fat to make a 1 cm layer. Roll and tie the meat. Weight pork and calculate cooking time, allow 25-30 mins. per 500 gr. Place meat in roasting pan. Roast pork for 30 mins.

Combine coffee, ¼ c. cream, ¼ c port & sugar, pour over pork.

Continue roasting pork for calculated cooking time, basting pork every 15 mins with coffee mixture. This basting gives the outside a beautiful golden glaze & helps to keep the meat moist.

Remove pork from oven when cooked. Keep covered in a warm place while making the sauce.

Skim fat from the pan juices. Place juices in a small saucepan with water, remaining ¼ c cream, remaining port and cornstarch. Cook until thickened, strain.

Slice pork thinly and place a tablespoon or two of sauce on each serving. Remaining sauce should be available for guests to add more.
