How to Tie Up a Pork Roast


0:01 My name is Brandon Sarkis for Expert Village and today I will be roasting a pork loin.

0:06 And the fun part, tying the roast. So we are going to take our roast and kind of face it

0:09 out from us and we are going to take a whole lot of string, more than you could ever think

0:13 you could possibly need and we are going to take the ugly side. Because there is a good

0:18 looking side and a bad looking side to a roast so we are going to put it ugly side up and

0:21 we are just going to loop it around like this. We are going to just basically start tying

0:25 it like you would tie your shoelaces and we are going to tie a knot here and we want the

0:30 knot in the center. So what we are going to do is we are going to take our string now

0:33 and take our hand and we are going to wrap the string around our hand like that and we

0:39 are going to come back and across and what we have done now is keep pulling the string

0:45 across here. I’ve got a lot of sting, is we have made our first loop and we are going

0:51 to put that over our pork if our pork will cooperate and we are going to pull that tight.

1:00 What will happen is these will start to walk around one side so you want to try to make

1:05 sure that your orient it, that it doesn’t do this, so all you are doing here is making

1:10 loops just like this. All right and set it on the pork and you are going to pull it taut

1:16 and the reason you do this is so the pork roast holds it shape and it holds all the

1:19 juices inside and you see it is starting to kind of walk around on me here. So I am going

1:26 to have to try and correct it here at the last second. Yeah, the reason you do this

1:29 is to make it hold its shape and try to provide even cooking because if it is loose in one

1:33 spot and tight in another it will cook unevenly so. Oh this one is giving me some hassle,

1:39 the escaping pork roast, so that’s it, give it a tug. Now that we are at the end we are

1:45 going to take our string and we are going to run it back on the other side and we are

1:49 going to alternate it through the threads here so we will go under the first one, over

1:56 the second one, under the third one, back around oops, back out of there, and we are

2:06 going to wrap it right around this piece here. The last piece that it went under and we make

2:13 another loop and knot this off and there we go, that’s how you tie a roast, now just

2:24 cut off your string and there you have it, a little two pound roast, ready to go.
