3 teaspoons flaked sea salt
4 teaspoons maple sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon ground coriander
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

1.4 kg pork roast (skin and fat removed)
4-5 brown onions


In a small bowl add the dry rub ingredients and mix with a small whisk till well combined. Take the pork and pat dry with paper towel, then sprinkle the rub mix all over the pork and using your hands, rub it all over the pork making sure it is covered with a complete coating.

Preheat the oven to 180° Celsius. Cut the onions into slices and place the rounds in the bottom of the baking dish to elevate the pork. Place the pork on top and cook in the preheated oven for 55 mins (or 40 minutes per kg if using a larger cut). Remove from the oven when cooked and cover the pork with aluminium foil and rest for 10 minutes before serving.

Serve with roast potatoes and steamed green beans dressed with olive oil and pistachios.
