    Gird Your Loins, It's Sunday......

    Well, another week has flown by. A rummage through the freezer produced a pork loin, so then a case of how I could cook it, and with what side dishes.

    Settled on a roasted loin with a spice rub, a honey and garlic sauce, roast potatoes, cauliflower cheese, and buttered and peppered carrots.

    First up I made the sauce, which was also going to baste the pork. Sauteed some crushed garlic in melted butter, added honey, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and a little bit of brown sugar.



    Then set about the rub for the loin. Some paprika, onion salt, garlic powder, salt and pepper, mixed with a little olive oil then rubbed all over the meat.





    Put the pork into a roasting dish then basted with about half of the sauce that I'd made, and into the oven for an hour, with it being removed and basted with more sauce every 20 minutes.

    Prepared and steamed the potatoes and cauliflower for about 5 minutes, during which I made up the cheese sauce, using mature cheddar and saving some to sprinkle over the top before going in the oven. Really can't remember the last time that I had cauliflower cheese. For the potatoes, I used a couple of ounces of lard in a small roasting dish.



    Steamed the carrots, then when tender and drained, added some butter and fresh ground white pepper.

    Everything came together on time. Removed the pork and let it rest for 15 minutes, having drained the sauce into a saucepan to which I added a spoonful of flour to thicken, then added some beef stock and simmered until a honey like consistency.













    Meanwhile, M'Sahib had made herself some noodles with prawns, vegetables and tamarind.

    PAG as usual that looks lovely, i fear you are setting the bar so high that you will single-handedly kill the kitchen forum.

    Out of interest and not a criticism, you don't seem to have many greens?

    When I make cauliflower with cheese sauce I consider that to be a meal all by itself and I am well chuffed with my kitchen work.

    Good effort sir

    and the oven-baked butternut pumpkin, but neither my photographic skills nor the look of the meal could come close to PAG's achievement


    As there is no cooked food delivery allowed in NZ we get our fresh fish delivered from a fish market . . . simply beautiful quality

    Roast pork without crackling and apple sauce just doesn't seem right to me. All the same it looks like a decent roast dinner.

    What do you do with left over pork? Reheat or eat cold?
