I not only pimped up the veggies with the cider, but also my gravy. It’s easy to make gravy from pan drippings to go with your roast pork, beef or chicken once you know how. Just whisk it fast so there are no lumps.
1 pork rolled loin
2 tbsp pan drippings
2 tbsp plain flour
1 cup stock
After you have rested your roast, remove the meat and the sweet potatoes from the pan and set aside in a warm place. Pour off all but 2 tbsp of pan dripping.
Place the pan over a medium heat until the drippings begin to boil.Sprinkle the plain flour over the drippings and whisk together using a metal whisk to remove all the flavour from the bottom of the pan.
Cook the flour for 2 minutes until slightly coloured. Whisk in the stock and remaining cider – about half a cup at a time – until you have the required consistency.
