  • 1.5kg Boneless rolled pork loin
  • 2 Teaspoons sea salt flakes


  • 25g Butter
  • 1 Red apple, cored, finely chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, plus sprigs to serve
  • 3/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup skinless roasted hazelnuts, roughly chopped

To serve

  • Gravy
  • Roasted halved small apples and red onion


  1. 1.
    The day before cooking, unwrap pork from plastic and place on a plate, uncovered in the fridge for 24 hours (this dries out the pork skin for extra-crispy crackling).
  2. 2.
    In a frying pan, melt butter on medium heat. Saute apple and thyme for 2-3 mins, stirring. Remove from heat. Cool. In a bowl combine breadcrumbs, nuts and cooked apple mixture. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. 3.
    Preheat air fryer to 200°C
  4. 4.
    Cut any string from the pork, unroll and place rind side up onto a board. Using a sharp knife, score the pork rind at 1cm intervals (if not already scored). Place pork rind side down onto the board. Place the stuffing mixture along the centre of the pork (you may need to press it together slightly). Roll up the pork firmly to enclose the filling. Use unwaxed white kitchen string to tie the pork crossways at 2cm intervals.
  5. 5.
    Sprinkle tied pork with salt. Air fry 25 minutes. Reduce air fryer to 180°C. Bake 50-55 minutes until juices run clear when pierced with skewer. Carefully remove pork from air fryer and place on a plate, loosely covered with foil to rest for 20 minutes.
  6. 6.
    Drain any fat from base of air fryer. Add halved apples and onion to air fryer. Cook 15 minutes until golden and tender. Serve pork with roast apples, onion, thyme sprigs and gravy.
