Thursday night was a continuation of the violent storms. Which meant I was not cooking outside! I did not want to risk looking like a seared steak. My only choice was to do this dish on the stove top and toaster oven. It came out great but I do like having it done on the grill. A nicer sear on the meat.
It had to be a quick dish as boy scouts started up that night as well. Well it’s Webelos which is one step down from boy scouts. Anyone who swears girls scream louder than boys has never been to a pack meeting. It can be deafening. But my son loves it so what can you do? He learned two new knots last night and he got a kick out of that.
I took some locally made garlic mustard and blended it with a bit of olive oil and red wine vinegar.
I seasoned the pork with salt and pepper and rubbed the mustard onto the pork. After heating up some olive oil in a skillet I seared both sides of the pork.
I placed it in the oven at 325F/160C to bake. At the end I did up it to 375F/190C because time was a ticking and I still had to do the homework check before the boy scouts. In the meantime I cooked up some rice, sauteed Brussel Sprouts for my husband and some eggplant/aubergine for the rest of us. After letting the pork rest I sliced it.
The pork came out nice and moist and the garlic mustard was a nice pairing without overwhelming it.
Loads of flavour for a quick meal on a busy school night!
Lovely looking pork. You are making me hungry!
🙂 That’s the side effect of all these good food blogs!
Okay Virginia, I’m making this tomorrow for Sunday lunch. Thanks 🙂
I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
Loving the idea of that garlic mustard. So perfect with the pork. Hmm, and aubergine 🙂
It was a good piece of pork too, it stayed very moist.
Your roast looks beautiful, perfectly cooked. I’ve done something similar and the smell of the pork while roasting is just incredible, as I’m sure you noticed. I’ve never used vinegar, though, but will be sure to do so next time. Thanks for the tip.
I wish I could smell it! I don’t have a sense of smell. Or it’s rare I can smell anything.
