As I have mentioned, I love meals that I can start preparing early in the day and continue to work on throughout the day. This garlic honey pork roast recipe is a prime example of such a recipe. I am very please with how it turned out. In fact, I thought about making another one as soon as I was finished with the leftovers from this one. It was that good!
I am currently cooking for one…well I guess one and a half if I count Frog. A 3.5 lb roast gave me three nights of dinner plus two lunches.
First I started the roast in the crock pot, adding all of the liquids and spices. I cooked it for about 5 hours.
The meat was cooked at the end of 5 hours. I wasn’t pleased with the amount of liquid left in the crock pot. So I transferred it over to a Dutch oven (have I mentioned how much I love our Dutch oven?). I let the roast cook for another 2 hours. And that’s it!
In the spirit of creating a meal that would last me a few days, I cooked a cup of quinoa, 4 carrots (diced) and a head of broccoli so that I could make bowls. I topped the bowls with green onions.
