I bought a Dutch oven from Sam’s today. I’m excited about opening the door to some different recipes. My first step was to search the Internet to find a recipe. I had a pork roast in the refrigerator and I was ready to do something different with it.
A quick search turned up the recipe I was going to use. Seemed simple enough which is very important since I have the attention span of a gnat and lose my place in recipes all the time. I found it at Food.com. Here is a link to the recipe: http://www.food.com/recipe/pork-roast-old-fashion-way-use-cast-iron-dutch-oven-44278. It had 49 reviews and received a tick under 5 stars. I did change the recipe a tick. I omitted the Kitchen Bouquet because I didn’t have any. This willingness to omit ingredients may be why my recipes sometimes have issues. On the flip side, I’ve learned there is a lot of play in recipes and omitting an ingredient here or there is usually not a problem.
This meal was simple and received thumbs up from all the kids. I served it with baked potatoes and corn. I was supposed to make gravy but the crowd was hungry so we skipped the gravy for tonight…giving me leftovers for tomorrow night.
Tomorrow, I will take the unused drippings and make gravy. I’ll add the left over meat to the gravy and serve it over rice. I LOVE leftovers. I am truly amazed by people who don’t do leftovers. Of course most people I know who don’t do leftovers are truly amazed by a family with 5 kids.
