Dial up the drama with this impressive Sunday dinner roast. After the main event, turn the leftovers into internationally flavoured dishes such as an Argentine sandwich and a hearty Vietnamese soup.

  • Prep time 15 minutes
  • Total time 1 hour & 45 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 6-rib pork loin rib roasts (each about 2 kg)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • 1 teaspoon each salt and hot pepper flakes
  • 12 baby potatoes , halved
  • 4 cloves garlic (unpeeled)
  • 4 shallots , halved
  • Half acorn squash (unpeeled), seeded and thickly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • Chimichurri Sauce (recipe in Method)

Method

Preheat oven to 375°F. Line large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper; place pork, fat side up, on prepared pan. Stir together chopped rosemary, cumin, garlic powder, pepper, salt and hot pepper flakes; rub all over pork. Roast for 1 hour.

Meanwhile, in large bowl, toss together potatoes, garlic, shallots, squash and oil.

Remove pork from oven; transfer to large cutting board. Arrange potato mixture and rosemary sprigs in single layer on baking sheet; place pork over top. Continue to roast until instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest part of pork reads 155°F, about 35 minutes.

Transfer pork to clean cutting board; tent with foil. Using spatula, turn over potato mixture; roast until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Slice 1 pork roast into 6 chops; serve with Chimichurri Sauce. Let remaining roast cool completely; slice meat from bones. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month.

Makes 6 servings (with leftovers).

Test Kitchen Tip: Roasting on the bone keeps meat moist. It's easy to slice—use the bones as a cutting guide.
