- Cut off the base of the endive. Wash and dry off. Cut in half, lengthwise. Peel the carrots, turnips and any other vegetables you are using that need peeling.
- Chop the turnips into 4 pieces. Peel the ½ celery root and chop into cubes.
- Preheat oven to 200* C (390* F) Fan.
- Score the pork with a knife and season with salt and mignonette pepper mix.
- Place pork in a large baking pan. Drizzle with some oil and roast for 15 minutes.
- Add the vegetables and the 2 cloves of garlic, minced. Sprinkle with some salt and roast for another 15 minutes.
- Lower the oven temperature to 160* C (320* F) Fan.
- Add the stock and roast for another 15 minutes, continuously basting. This way the meat will remain soft and juicy.
- Remove from oven and turn it off. Add the vinegar and mix.
- Cover the meat with aluminum foil. Place the pan back in the oven and leave the door ajar.
- When the meat has rested, transfer to a serving platter or plates. Pour juices from pan on tip. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper.
- If some vegetables are smaller and cook faster, remove them when they are ready and continue roasting the rest.
