The recipe that I bring today is the roasted pork that I have always prepared, and since the first time I made it about 15 years ago, I never move it not a coma because it always works for me, even if sometimes I may be tempted to introduce a new touch. This roast porc with prunes, dried apricots and sweet wine sauce is an easy recipe without complications that only requires patience in the roasting time and much love. The rest is done itself

The Roast allows the meat to slowly cook retaining their flavors and properties and giving a unique flavour. It is a must in the buffets of my parties whether in summer or winter, and a favorite of my friends. Serve it with two sauces: its own juice roast pork and another more sweet for those who enjoy the mix of the sweet and sour in the meals.

As garrison I never miss the potatoes baked or boiled, but you can also accompany it of a salad or the vegetables that you like and it will be also fantastic (try these creamed spinach). It is an ideal dish for special occasions in which we tend to be very busy because it allows meat and sauces to be prepared a few days earlier. The day you are going to serve it you just need cut the meat into thin fillets and warm sauces

Pork leg is macerated for one day what makes the meat take the flavors well. Meat is watered with wine during roasted so that the result is a juicy and tasty meat. Let me know... but I am sure it will be a success!
