Herb and Garlic Crusted Pork Roast

The little 1 kg or 2 lb pork roasts I find here are perfect when you are not feeding a crowd, but still want to feed 4-6 or 2 with leftovers for sandwiches.  I bought 3 of these when they were on sale.  I think this is the last one but who knows?

Also in the freezer was a large bag of grilled vegetables found at my favorite frozen food store, Picard’s.  I sauteed them with a little fresh thyme and olive oil to accompany the buttered pasta.  Jade will be so pleased!

Herb and Garlic Crusted Pork Roast

Salt and pepper

1 tbsp each, fresh rosemary and thyme leaves

3 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

A 2 lb rolled pork roast

2 onions, quartered

Season the roast with salt and pepper.  Make a paste with the herbs, garlic, oil and mustard, then spread all over the roast.

Place the quartered onions in the bottom of a roasting pan and top them with the pork.  Roast at 400 F for 30 minutes, then lower the temperature to 350 F and continue to roast for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

    The meat on your pork roast looks like it is as tender as butter. You are making my mouth water.

  5. Beautiful… I think Jade will be more than pleased, what a lovely dish to sit down to, beautiful to look at and scrumptious to eat!

  6. This is a lovely sunday dinner idea:] I am pinning it!

  7. What a wonderful joint of pork, Rosemary!

  8. OK, just once you should post a dish that’s kind of ugly. Then we could all go back to normal. Alright, I know you don’t make those. This is beautiful as always.
