Here are some pork recipes.
I was looking for a stable recipe that I could cook basically anytime without worrying about fresh herbs and spices. This worked well.
Chinese-style Braised Pork
- Brown 3-lb pork shoulder. Transfer to baking dish.
- Saute 4 cloves garlic sliced, 2” ginger sliced, 3 small chilis sliced.
- Mix 1 tsp five spice, 2 tbsp brown sugar, 2 tbsp rice vinegar, 3 tbsp soy sauce, 1/2 cup water. Pour over.
- Bake covered at 300 F for 1.5-2 hours until very tender. Turn once. Serve with juices.
As written back in February: I saw a pork loin roast for $3.99/lb at TJ’s and thought it’d be a good idea to buy it. Then, when attempting to cook it, I realized I needed spices, so I went back to TJ’s for some fresh rosemary.
Pork Loin Roast
- Combine 3 cloves garlic crushed, 1 tbsp (dried) rosemary, a good amount of salt, some pepper. Mix in 2 tbsp olive oil.
- Take a 2.5-lb pork loin, poke holes with a knife. Brush with marinade.
- Roast at 350 F for about an hour in 1/2 cup white wine. Start fat side down, occasionally basting in juices, Add some water, and flip.
- Served sliced, with juices poured over.
