Fennel and Rosemary Pork Roast Open-Faced Sandwiches

I was looking at the Jamie Oliver website http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/pork-recipes/posh-roast-pork-party-kebabs and got this idea of rubbing a rolled pork roast with fennel seed, garlic and rosemary.

I’ve done the garlic and rosemary before but the fennel seed was brilliant!  The house was perfumed with a heady aroma of herbs.   Meat!

He served his pork on pita bread, accompanied with a chilli yogurt sauce that while not eye-popping spicy, can still issue a wake up call to Sunday loungers.

I didn’t have pita bread, so I decided to go with slices of toasted multi-grained country loaf.  Fabulous!

  1. The pictures look great, particularly the top one of the meat and herbs. You hit the daylight reading on the button and the drop focus is top.

    That looks really really really good! I bet the texture of the crisp herbs and fennel against the succulence of the pork is amazing.

  4. Simply gorgeous. Pork hasn’t gone on sale in far too long. I know this because I keep seeing wonderful recipes like this and remembering I don’t have a tenderloin.

    Great photos…the roast looks so moist. I love fennel, especially with pork. The seeds had to have made such a crispy crust. A delicious looking sandwich.
