    I'mPat's Note:

    This recipe is from Australian Delicious and I had the pleasure of participating in a cooking a class in which this was part of a 4 course meal. We all participated in the class so times are estimated as there were 12 of us in the class. Served with polenta.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 15 g porcini mushrooms (dried, from gourmet shops and delis)
    • 100 g butter, divided (unsalted)
    • 1 kg pork loin (rolled, boneless and skinless and as much fat left on as possible)
    • 3 garlic cloves
    • 236.59 ml sage leaf
    • 59.14 ml rosemary
    • 400 g tomatoes (whole canned)
    • 750 ml shiraz wine, divided
    • salt and pepper
    • 14.79 ml parsley (flat leaf chopped)



    1. 1
      Soak the dried porcini in 1 cup (250ml) boiling water for 10 minutes to soften (reserve liquid when draining).
    2. 2
      Meanwhile melt half the butter in a flameproof casserole over medium-low heat.
    3. 3
      Season pork well with salt and pepper; then place fat side down in the pan; gently sear for 6 to 8 minutes until well coloured and the fat has rendered.
    4. 4
      Turn and sear other side for 4 to 5 minutes. (Our pork loin which was close to 2 kilo took a total of about 20 minutes to get a nice golden colour.).
    5. 5
      Remove pork from the pan, drain off any excess fat, and melt the remaining butter (we added some more olive oil); add the garlic, sage and rosemary and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until golden.
    6. 6
      Squeeze porcini to remove excess liquid and set soaking liquid aside.
    7. 7
      Return pork to the pan (at this point we put into a large baking dish); add mushrooms, tomatoes and 1 cup (250ml) wine and season well with salt and pepper.
    8. 8
      Cover the surface with a baking paper, tucking in the edges as this ensures that the dish will not dry out.
    9. 9
      Reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes (we put into the oven at about 160 degrees Celsius. Please note our pork was larger than called for in the recipe).
    10. 10
      Turn the pork, baste with the sauce, add the remaining wine and reserved mushroom stock.
    11. 11
      Recover with baking paper and cook for a further 40 to 50 minutes until the sauce is rich and the pork is tender (ours was in the oven longer).
    12. 12
      If the sauce starts to dry out, add splashes of water or wine to maintain the moisture level.
    13. 13
      The sauce will intensify in colour but shouldn't burn.
    14. 14
    15. 15
      For the polenta, place 3 cups (750ml) water ina saucepan; bring to a boil; gradually add the polenta, whisking constantly; reduce the heat to low and cook, whisking for 8 to 10 minutes.
    16. 16
      Remove from the heat, fold in butter and Parmesan cheese, season and keep warm.
    17. 17
      Remove the pork from the sauce, thickly slice.
    18. 18
      Serve with the polenta, drizzle with sauce, and garnish with parsley.

      Very tasty, as long as you find a fatty pork loin roast, although the recipe offers a failsafe: the excellent polenta that might make you forget any shortcomings in the roast. Per Pat, the sage leaves and rosemary should be detached from their sprigs but not chopped up; the garlic was peeled and squashed, but otherwise unchanged.; I didn't do these things but since there was so much wine while cooking the pork, I don't think it changed anything. Looking forward to trying a variation on this which involves marinating the pork loin roast for 3 days in wine (or wine vinegar) to see if more pork loin flavor is retained. Made for Photo Tag. Updating 3/02/14 review for "day-after": EVEN BETTER, recommend slicing pork roast and submerging it under sauce for 1 day. It helps for more of the pork slice surface to be exposed to the wine sauce; you can see by the photo that the pork becomes sexier and outshines the polenta. If waiting to serve 1 day, wait until 2nd day to make the polenta. For the record 100 g butter = 7 Tbsp, 80 g = 5 2/3 Tbsp., 160C=320/325F. My reheating at 275F, 135C., about 25 minutes.
