Delicate, fragrant, slightly spicy slices of meat in combination with tangerine and pomegranate create a fireworks of taste! And everything is prepared very simply and easily.

This recipe was invented spontaneously. It's just that in the butcher's shop, our butcher laid aside for me an excellent piece of pork neck, which I decided to bake. And then it started ... As a result, we got an insanely tasty, harmonious, beautiful and very festive dish.

For about 3 servings:

  • 500 gr pork neck
  • 5-6 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tangerines (it is better to take sweet and sour Abkhaz tangerines)
  • 2 tablespoons Santa Maria Five Pepper Blend Spice
  • 2 tablespoons dried rosemary or 2 sprigs fresh
  • 0.5 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 handful of pomegranate seeds

Rinse a piece of the neck, dry it with a paper towel. Peel the cloves of garlic, cut the large ones into 2-3 pieces lengthwise. Make deep cuts with the sharp tip of a knife and stuff the garlic into them.

Grease the meat with butter, rub it with salt and a mixture of rosemary and five peppers on all sides. If you are using fresh rosemary, then you must first chop it into small pieces.

Put the meat in a mold and send it to the oven, preheated to 200 degrees, for 40-50 minutes. Check for readiness by sticking a knife or a special needle into the meat. If the released juice is clear, then the meat is ready.

Cut the meat into slices. If you serve it as a snack, then the slices should be thin.

Remove the peel from the tangerines, as shown here, cut them into circles. Arrange these tangerine slices on a portioned platter or one large platter.

Place the meat slices on them.

Pour some juice from the dish in which the meat was baked. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds.
