Pork Roast with Roasted Vegetables

Roast Pork with Roast Vegetables










I bought a pork shoulder roast and cooked the whole 1.5kg in oven with olive oil, rosemary and lemon zest for 1 1/2 hours. Then rest for 30min before slicing. This made 3 meals for hubby and I. I had 1/3 tonight with roasted parsnip, turnip and carrots which I bought as part of a soup pack (TIP: It’s cheaper for us to purchase a fresh vegetable soup pack to use for roasted vegetables instead of buying them individually as there is only 2 of us to cook for)

I also served it with apple sauce and mint sauce.

Vietnamese: pork salads

I love Vietnamese food and made these great salads for lunch but could be a dinner too.

Vietnamese pork salad w homemade nuoc cham & thai oyster sauce

I roasted cubes of pork shoulder in 180*c oven for 30minutes yesterday.  Then chopped the vegetables roughly same size. In airtight container.

Today i just had to serve it with 1-2Tb homemade nuoc cham sauce and 1tb thai oyster sauce . Simply place vegetables and pork on serving plate with thai oyster sauce drizzled over the top and microwave for 2 minutes.  Then dress salad with nuoc cham dressing, fresh mint, fresh coriander and crispy Asian noodles.

Vegetables used capsicum, baby corn, bok choy, carrot, green beans, broccoli, celery and mushrooms.

Roast Pork in Romesco Sauce

Using up the Romesco Sauce and teamed with pork is a definite winner. Lovely combination with Pink Kimchi and Almonds Crushed with fresh herbs from herb Pots with a drizzle of Mothers Earth Apple Cider Vinegar.
