Spread it on the cut side. Roll out the pork turning it into a cylinder like shape. Secure it with a cooking twine. Place it on the prepared greased roasting pan. Now it is time to bake it!
Finally you can bake it in your preheated oven till the pork bakes beautifully and it should be pink at the center anymore. This will take around 1 hour to bake. You can check with a meat thermometer. Place it in the center and it should read 63 degrees C or 145 degrees F. Cover this cooked meat with aluminum foil. You need to cover it with two layers.
