This roast recipe is from the Malinda Russell inspired Family Meal. Read about her take on a roasted pig entreé. The rest of her story is quite powerful as well. This will be your inspiration as you prepare this dish.
When I made this dish, I used pork belly. But, any fatty cut would work well. Try a shoulder or butt roast in this recipe. Notice

Since this recipe uses Madeira, it’s the perfect accompaniment. It’s great with slow-cooked and umami-filled dishes like a pork roast. The way I like to enjoy Madeira is much like you’d enjoy a young brandy. This is not a young, fresh, bouncy wine. This wine has been heated and allowed to slowly oxidize in barrels. This creates a richer character that has a lot in common with aged spirits.
We enjoyed them with Blandy’s 5 Year Malmsey Madeira and Justino Henriques Rainwater Madeira. But, sherry would also be nice in this dish.
Here are a few suggestions of bottles to enjoy with this dish.
