Since moving to the Pacific Northwest about 7-1/2 years ago, I have encountered a surprising number of people who have never tried pork roast (or pork steak, but that’s a different post . . . ).
Those people who have never tried pork roast have no idea what they are missing out on, as a good pork roast is a thing of culinary wonder.
Recently I found some pork roast on sale as Safeway (which in general seems to have REALLY good deals on pork for people who are Safeway club members), and I decided to look around the internet to see if I saw any interesting posts about cooking pork roast.
Here are a few good sites I found (not all of which have to do with pork roast, but I am posting them anyway) –
- Cooking for Engineers – http://www.cookingforengineers.com/. Very nice site, with some recipes that sound really good. I jus read the article on cooking knives (http://www.cookingforengineers.com/article.php?id=39), it was very informative.
- FlyLady.net, pork recipes for the slow cooker – http://www.flylady.net/pages/FFT_SlowCookPork.asp. Scroll down the page, there is quite a bit of stuff in reader comments.
- The Food Network – As always, a good site to visit. http://www.foodnetwork.com/
- Keeping the Castle – This is the recipe I finally tried the other day, my friends & I really liked it : http://www.keepingthecastle.com/2006/02/02/roast-pork-loin-recipe-from-the-floridas-natural-growers-cafe/. The pork roast is covered with a rub of paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, salt & black pepper. It is roasted in an oven for 10 minutes at 450 F, and then a mixture of half orange juice and half white wine is poured in beside it (not on top of it), and it spends the rest of the time roasting at 325 F. Very savory.
