Step 1/9

For the roast, rinse pork, pat dry, cut and flatten (or ask butcher to prepare). Spread mustard over pork and season with salt and pepper.

For the filling, peel garlic and chop finely. Rinse and trim leeks and cut into small pieces. Heat butter in a skillet, sauté leeks and garlic 4-5 minutes and season with salt and pepper.

Step 3/9

Spread leek mixture over pork, leaving an uncovered margin around the edge. Sprinkle cheese over leek mixture, roll up pork to cover filling and fasten with kitchen twine.

Step 4/9

Heat butter in a large roasting pan and sear rolled pork roast on all sides.

Step 5/9

Step 6/9

Pour 100 ml (approximately 1/2 cup) stock, peppercorns and dried marjoram into pan with roast and bake about 30 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 175°C (approximately 350°F) and bake about 1 1/2 more hours. Baste roast occasionally with remaining broth and pan juices.
