Roast pork with red cabbage

Robbestek med rödkål

I like the way Swedes roast pork. Sure, it isn’t so very different to how we roast pork in the UK, but if you have never tried roast pork the Swedish way I do recommend giving it a go.

The first difference is that Swedes tend to use more seasoning, often ginger, to give the pork extra flavour.

Secondly, Swedes nearly always use a meat thermometer, rather than calculating a cooking time. I cannot recommend this highly enough. Ovens vary so much that calculating a cooking time can easily to lead to over cooked meat which can then be too dry.

Thirdly, Swedes are as likely to serve roast pork with a salad instead of vegetables! John Duxbury
