Place the whole chunk of pork in the bowl and rub in the marinade. Make sure to get the marinade into the scored slits.

Keep the bowl of meat in the fridge to marinate for 8-12 hours but preferably overnight.

When ready to roast, place the scored side of the meat in a roasting tray.

Pour the remaining marinade on top of the meat.
