.: Tips :.

1- It recommended getting the pork with about 5 cm thickness.  If not, then please slice the pork yourself.  Otherwise, it will be hard to cook through.
2- To make the pork juicy, Brine is required.  Click here for more detail.
3- To make the pork juicy, meat thermometer is also required.  Once the internal temperature of the meat reaches 68 Celsius, you have to start the Step 3 right the way.  Over cooking the pork won't make it juicy.
4- Step 3 requires a close monitoring.  Adjust the baking time according to your preference
5- In step 2, for halogen oven user, you can cover the pork with aluminum paper to avoid over burning the pork
