Succulent roast of pork that has been cooked slowly with tomatoes, garlic, and pineapple makes a great family meal if served with mashed potato and green vegetables of your choice.

INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over a medium heat. Stir in 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary and sage. Place roast in the skillet, and turn to brown on all sides. Transfer to a roasting pan.
  • Pierce holes in top of roast using small knife, and insert garlic slices. Pour tomatoes, pineapple, and onion slices over the roast. Sprinkle with remaining rosemary, salt, and pepper.
  • Cover and cook in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Lower oven temperature to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C), and continue to cook 2 hours or until internal temperature of roast reaches a minimum of 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
