The instruction how to make Rack of pork with orange seasoning

  1. Preheat oven to 220C. Place the pork upright on a clean work surface. Use a sharp knife to score the rind in a diamond pattern. Cut down the length of the rack, close to the bones, about 4cm deep.
  2. Combine breadcrumbs, almond meal, parsley, sage, garlic, shallot and orange rind in the bowl of a food processor and process until combined. Place seasoning down the centre of the cut and use unwaxed white kitchen string to secure.
  3. Place pork in a roasting pan and rub about 2 teaspoons of salt into the rind. Roast in oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven. Reduce oven temperature to 180u00b0C.
  4. Place potato in a bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil and a pinch of salt. Toss to coat. Arrange potato around the pork in the pan. Wrap a slice of prosciutto around each pear and secure with toothpicks.
  5. Add pears to the roasting pan. Roast, turning potato occasionally and basting with any pear juices, for a further 45 minutes or until pork is brown and just cooked through, the potato and pears are golden, and the prosciutto is crisp. Remove from oven. Transfer pork to a plate. Cover with foil and set aside for 5 minutes to rest.
  6. Meanwhile, combine the remaining oil, orange juice, mustard and honey in a screw-top jar and shake to combine. Place pears, spinach leaves and potato on serving plates. Use a sharp knife to cut pork rack into 6 cutlets. Place on plates. Drizzle with dressing to serve.
