Hello everyone, I know I’ve been missing in action. I think, I was just a little bit burned out and stuck in a rut. But I’m back and here to be able to show you some more easy and really good recipes that you can cook for yourself and your family. I’m hoping that everyone had a very good Easter. I had been gone for the last two years so, for me it was really special and I was blessed to be able to cook for them. Our menu was of all the favorite dishes that I know my children like. But, my newest dish was a Crown Roast of Pork. I never thought that I would ever cook one so, this was a first for me. It was not hard at all I think the hardest thing for me was going to bed and smelling all of the different herbs. It kind of reminds you of going to bed on the eve of Thanks Giving and smelling the turkey as it cooks in the oven.
Although, this is not a every Sunday meal it’s only for special occasions. So, I want you to check it out it’s easier than you think it is. I found the recipe in the Joy Of Cooking it’s like my BFF’s most used cook book and actually his only cook book. So here we go, let’s get cooking. We get our best cuts of meat from the butcher in our local eastern market.
1 Clove of garlic
Tarragon or Thyme
Cover the tips of the bones with aluminum foil.
Heat the oven on 400 F once you put the roast in the oven, turn the temperature down to 325F. So, what I decided to do was put the roast in the oven at 11:15 before I went to bed and, it was done around 4:30 in the morning. I drained off the drippings and made a heck of a gravy. You can refer back to the post on Chicken Fried Steak and Gravy to learn how to make your gravy. I will post my side dishes on another post. So if you have a really special occasion coming up, hey you might want to think about fixing up a crown roast it’s so yummy.
I hope you all had a blessed day with your family and always remember KEEP IT SIMPLE!
