Pork roast with a “balsamic garlicky” flavor delivering a soft and tender slice of roast. The perfect Sunday or New Years day roast!
I cannot tell you what a wonderful thing it is when someone walks into the kitchen and says “what are you cooking it smells AMAZING!” When my daughter came to visit today its the first thing she said and that was precious more especially because I am an anosmic home cooking mom so it makes all the difference 🙂
Tips and Suggestions:
The resting time when making a roast is honestly very important. Especially (and not optional) when its done. Let it rest covered in foil it makes all the difference.
Don’t worry I know that you will want to dig in immediately, this pork roast is that good…but its okay to resist 🙂
No Stress Cooking
As you know if you have either read some of my previous posts or downloaded my free e-cookbook you will know that I believe in no stress cooking, using ingredients that you are comfortable with so…..
If you don’t have fresh herbs, go with dried herbs. Just get them all together with a drizzle of olive oil and give it all a thorough mix before rubbing onto the roast. If you have a mortar and pestle that’s even better! Mine stays on my kitchen counter top because I still use it for just about anything. I got it as gift from my daughter a few years ago and its been an extremely large part of my kitchen’s most loved pieces!
