Sunday night after shopping Saturday sees us having a Pork Leg Roast. Nothing hard here just whack it in the oven and slow cook for four hours or so. Perfect crackling and moist juicy meat emmmmm do like the swine.
Can’t go past a good Beef Roast! this was an ok Topside. I say ok as most supermarket beef is pretty average here, nothing wrong just not great flavour compared to nice grass feed beef. Like with most meat though, it’s what you do with it that matters. I cook mine in a bowl convection oven which is great for beef as you can get good colour and heat and still have a nice moist piece of roast beef. Forty minutes give or take is plenty and gives a good med. chuck in some good roast veges and you are set. I also had some fresh green beans that I blanched then tossed in a hot pan with some deli bought feta and sundried tomato in marinade.
The best thing about us having a roast is because there are just the two of us there is always leftover cold pork. we had it roasted for dinner one night, in pork and gravy rolls for lunch the next day and finally finished it with a pork curry that night. Three meals for about $16, $20 if you count the veg and rolls.
Mid week cooking can be a drag when we are working big hours (50+) but we have to keep the fuel coming. A roast on Wednesday might seem like a lot of effort but using my bowl convection oven makes it easy. Everything on the plate was cooked in it apart from the broccoli and tomatoes that were pan seared. With a little timing the veges can go in with the pork and all cook at once then it was just a matter of cooking the tomato and broc in a separate pan. The Pepper gravy was cooked in the same pan so very few dishes either. Succulent roast pork with crispy crackling and veg all in about an hour go to whoa.
Another roast Pork Belly. I think I’m managing to eat smaller and smaller portions of pork belly. The Noodles and veges make up for the indulgence of the pork. I tossed tofu and some veges into the soy noodles and the mushrooms are sauteed. I used the leftover belly to make pork and cabbage noodles for lunch the next day. Can you eat too many noodles?
