What you’ll need

1 SunPork Pork Rib Rack

1 onion

1 pink lady apple

2 figs

6 garlic cloves minced

3 sage leaves

1 cup breadcrumbs

1 egg

1 tsp. lemon zest

16 – 20 Dutch carrots, peeled

3 Tbsp. butter

How to make it

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  2. In a food processor, combine onion, apple, figs, 2 garlic cloves, sage leaves, breadcrumbs, egg and lemon zest. Process until smooth.
  3. Place the pork on a chopping board rib side down. Holding your knife at a 45-degree angle, slice along the ribs about 2cm deep – ensuring that you do not cut through the bottom.
  4. Rotate your knife towards the meat and continue to slice and unroll the pork. It should look like a flat piece of meat, still connected to the bones.
  5. Spoon the stuffing into the center of the pork, leaving 2cm at both ends empty.
  6. Fold the pork back towards the ribs and secure the meat in between each rib with kitchen twine.
  7. Place in the oven for 2 hours or until the internal temperature is 75 degrees.
  8. Meanwhile, heat a large fry pan over medium heat. Melt butter. Add 4 cloves of garlic and carrots to the pan. Allow to simmer in butter and garlic for 5-6 mins or until tender.
  9. Serve pork rack with garlic buttered carrots and enjoy!
