Melt-In-Your-Mouth Rosemary Pork & Herb Roasted Potatoes

Fresh Rosemary on my windowsill...
Fresh thyme in my herb garden... Preparing the pork roast...

Supper last night at our home ~ a delicious platter of succulent pork roast on a bed of caramelized potatoes and sweet onions. Oh so yum! There was not a scrib or scrab left for anyone else in the family - and it was there was only 3 of us eating at that time (plus the baby who promptly flung every potato and pork piece unto the floor-she thought she was entertaining us-not so much!!) My son gobbled up most of the potatoes before I could even get them on the table. This is so easy with such outstanding results!
Melt-In-Your-Mouth Rosemary Pork
3-lb. boneless pork loin
(prepare meat on both sides with a generous portion of kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper-followed by sprinkling on onion powder and garlic powder - then rub entire port with herb and oil mixture)

Herb Oil Rub
1 T olive oil
1 T Italian Seasoning
1 T dried rosemary
2 T fresh rosemary (chopped)
2 T fresh thyme (chopped)

Dredge meat in seasoned flour. Add 1 T olive oil to a large skillet, brown pork on all sides.
Slice 1 large onion and place in the bottom of a dutch oven or slow-cooker.
Remove pork from skillet and place on top of onions.
Deglaze the skillet with 1/2 c beef stock and 3 T Worcestershire sauce.
Pour sauce over meat and onions.

If using a dutch oven - bake covered in a 250 degree oven for 3 hours. If using a slow-cooker then use the high setting for 1 hour and then reduce to low for 2-3 additional hours.
Once the pork is finished you can make a delectable gravy with the drippings by adding 1/4 c water and 3 T flour whisked smooth. Combine with pan sauce and stir over high heat until thickened and bubbly.

Seasoned Flour
1 c flour
1 t kosher salt
1/4 t fresh cracked black pepper
1/2 t paprika
1/8 t nutmeg

Herb Roasted Potatoes
Potatoes~12 Red Bliss or combine with white - diced. (whatever you have on hand)
Lay potatoes on a sheet pan and coat with olive oil. Sprinkle on a generous amount of kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper. Top with 2 T each of fresh chopped rosemary and thyme.

Bake in oven @ 350 degrees for approximately 45 minutes or until potatoes are soft and caramelized.

Psalm 73:28
It is good for me to draw near to God;
I have put my trust in the Lord God,
that I may declare all Your Works.

The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
