Looking for a marinade for a small pork roast...
« on: April 12, 2014, 08:25:01 PM »
I have plenty of ingredients to play with, e-Hellions, but no idea really what goes with pork. Why yes, learning to cook IS fun!  ;D Please share your favorite pork marinades, or rubs, or...whatever it is that makes pork roasts delicious! For instance I just bought some good honey and fresh rosemary, what can I do with it?

Oh goodness, either of those sound delicious! And they're both possible. And I'm sort of tempted to combine the two...because bacon is delicious. My grammar and sentence structure here proves that I should not post while hungry. Oh boy!

shhh its me

   I use the recipe pork tenderloin Diane sauce as a marinate/poaching sauce for pork roast...http://www.fortheloveofcooking.net/2013/11/pork-tenderloin-diane.html

I saute mushrooms and onions then add all the other ingredients(+ and extra 1/2 cup of chicken broth) and pour over the pork roast and roast for 90 ish minutes (depending on weight)

If you want really easy, fresh lemon or lime juice and zest, *lots* of freshly ground black pepper and olive oil. Use the marinade as basting liquid, and finish with a bit of salt and a squeeze of lemon juice.

We just finished dinner, and I'd say it turned out pretty good. For the marinade I chopped up some rosemary and garlic, added salt and pepper, a splash of balsamic vinegar, a tablespoon or so of mustard, some honey and I let the roast and accompanying veggies (bell peppers, mushrooms, potatoes and onions) sit and marinate for an hour or so. Nom! Thanks for the ideas, you guys!
