  3. Strain off the water, add the butter together with the salt and pepper and cover with a tight fitting lid for 5-6 minutes.
  4. Mash well or alternatively you can transfer the entire mixture to a food processor to purée.
  5. Taste the purée and correct the seasoning as, and if required.

Roasted Potatoes

  2. Place them on a baking tray lined with baking parchment and bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes.

Top Tip

Covering the entire baking dish during the cooking process is an effective way to cook the pork sufficiently without drying it out.
