How to make it

  1. Remove string from pork and use paper towel to pat dry the rind, then refrigerate uncovered overnight.
  2. Pre-heat fan forced oven to 210֯C.
  3. In a large fry-pan over med heat, fry 50g butter with diced onions until soft. Transfer onions to a large bowl, then add breadcrumbs, flaked almonds, 30ml port, rosemary, thyme and tarragon then season with salt and pepper and mix to combine.
  4. Unroll the pork and lay flat, skin side down. Add the stuffing in a line in the centre of the pork, pressing firmly. Roll the leg tightly around the stuffing and tie together with butcher’s string. Rub rind with vegetable oil and salt generously, then transfer to a large, lined oven tray and roast uncovered for 40 mins.
