Moroccan Fig Pork Roast

Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars
1

"A succulent, savory and sweet pork roast, ideally served over a vegetable rice or couscous. I love using spices as much as possible, so in this experiment I used quite a few which I rubbed onto the pork roast before I seared it. I think it would be even better if you let the rub sit on the roast for an hour or so in the fridge prior to cooking."

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Pat pork roast dry with a clean towel. Mix curry powder, turmeric, garam masala, ground ginger, chili powder, cumin, cayenne, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Rub spice mixture all over the pork roast.
  2. Heat the olive oil and butter in a large, heavy bottom pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Place the seasoned pork roast into the pot and cook until evenly browned, about 2 minutes on each side. Remove pork and set aside. Stir in the garlic and onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the fig compote, until well blended. Return pork to the pot, coating it with the fig mixture. Pour in the tomatoes and chicken broth. Cover, and bring to a boil.
  3. Place covered pot in the preheated oven. Cook until the pork is no longer pink in the center, about 2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

I had around a 2.5-3 lb pork roast, it only took an hour in the oven at 350. I didn't have garam masala or tumeric on hand, so I skipped them. Also even though my pork roast was half the size ...

This looks delicious, however should not include "Moroccan" in the name, as Morocco is a Muslim country where the general population doesn't eat pork. If you were to find an individual Moroccan ...

I thought this recipe was wonderful. It tasted like dishes I've had at Moroccan restaurants. I made fig compote by simmering chopped mission figs in some water, red wine and brown sugar for 10 m...
