How to roll and tie a pork loin

  3. Bring the short end over itself towards you, creating a loop around your finger, then pass it under the long end. Bring the short end back over the long end, then push it through the loop.

  4. Pull the short end to form a knot. Pull on the long end to tighten the loop round the joint.

  5. Unroll a loop of string, then with your right hand, twist it 180 degrees clockwise into a noose. Slip this under the loin and pull it tight so it sits 2-3cm below the first loop.
