Serves :

Preparation Time :
45 minutes

Cooking Time :
2 hours

Preparation Method :

  • Heat the oil and the butter in a large saucepan or flameproof casserole into which the meat will just fit.
  • Fry the pork, garlic and onion for about 15 minutes, until the pork is browned on all sides.
  • Add the milk, juniper berries and sage. Season to taste.
  • Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 1½ -2 hours, until the pork is tender and cooked through, turning and basting from time to time.
  • Transfer the pork to a warmed serving dish. Discard the garlic, juniper berries and sage.
  • The milky cooking juices will look curdled, so rub the sauce through a sieve or liquidise in a blender or food processor until smooth. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
  • Carve the pork into thick slices. Pour a little of the sauce over the slices and serve the remaining sauce separately. Garnish with sprigs of sage.
  • Accompany with boiled new potatoes and a green salad.
