First attempt at a pork roast… moderate success.
I went to the store on the hunt for pork tenderloin. They were out and I didn’t feel like going on a multi-store shopping session, so I grabbed a pork prime roast ($2.30 per lb) and decided to test my luck with the trade-off. In the end, I was pleased with the outcome (except for the sauce) and would only change a few things next time.
The process was quick and painless, so there aren’t any pictures.
I marinated the pork in beer, honey, brown sugar, and garlic for an hour and then roasted it for about another hour. During the very hands-off cooking process I made some roasted red potatoes (success), steamed green beans (success), and a honey sauce out of the marinade (semi-failure).
I didn’t have any cream, so I thickened my sauce with a cornstarch slurry… I screwed this part up (I think the heat was too high). It left the sauce with a good taste, but poor consistency.
A lazy man’s pork roast. Marinade in honey, brown sugar, garlic, and beer… put in the oven, come back in an hour.
