Spiced Pork Roast

This dish is supremely delish with Roasted Root Veggies. Choosing heritage pork will mean even more flavor. I love leftovers in a sandwich slathered with mustard and dotted with Spicy-Sweet Pickled Cucumbers.

Ingredients

  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 2 teaspoons ground fennel
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2-1/2 pound boneless pork loin roast

Instructions

  • Pound garlic to a paste in a mortar and pestle with a pinch of salt and grind of pepper. Add thyme and fennel, and continue to pound to a paste. Mix in remaining spices and 1 tablespoon olive oil, and rub all over pork. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 3 hours (or overnight).
  • Preheat oven to 400℉. Rub pork with an additional pinch of salt.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, and swirl in the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sear pork on all sides, about 3-5 minutes total, and transfer pan to oven. Roast for 25-35 minutes, until a thermometer poked into the thickest part reads 150℉.
  • Remove from oven to a cutting board, tent with foil, and let rest for 15 minutes before slicing.

Talk about fast food. This quickie meal uses high quality store-bought ingredients, pantry spices, and fresh veggies to deliver an improved version of a fast-food staple. Nothing fancy here, but when your schedule is frenzied and you’re considering the drive-thru, consider this 20-minute DIY meal instead. Decrease the chipotle slightly if you’re serving less adventurous palates.

Iowa City Chili

There’s a chill in the air here in the Heartland, the kind of windy, rainy days that drill into your bones and create a hankerin’ for a rib-sticking bowl of chili. It’s also a great way to use up the last of your tomatoes and peppers, or to begin to use your new “puttin’ ups” (as Kurt’s grandma used to call them).
