  • Yield: Serves 10
  • Cooking Time: 2 hours
  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 STUFFED PORK LOIN DOUBLE ROAST,centre-cut, about 4 lb (2 kg)
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) fennel seeds
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) black peppercorns
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) caraway seeds
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) salt
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) butter
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) flour
  • 1 cup (250 mL) red wine
  • 2 cups (500 mL) beef bouillon

Cooking Instructions

Stuffed double pork loins are often sold in butchers and at meat counters in larger stores. This is an easy and effective way to cook them.

Pre-heat oven to 325°F (160°C).

Grind fennel seeds, peppercorns, and caraway seeds in an electric coffee mill for six or seven pulses – do not reduce seeds to a coarse powder; if a few seeds remain whole, that’s OK.

Mix in salt and liberally coat pork roast. Place in a roasting pan and cook for two hours, or until the middle of the roast registers 155°F (58°C) on a meat thermometer.

Remove and keep warm.

While pork is roasting make the sauce. In a saucepan melt butter over medium heat and sauté onions until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in flour until well blended. Whisk in wine and bouillon and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for five minutes, whisking occasionally.

Serve sliced pork loin over a pool of sauce.

Pork Roast and TVR's no fail Gravy

Pork Roast and TVR’s no fail Gravy

(exit)

Pork Roast and TVR’s no fail Gravy (or Soup for the next day)—October, 2009

Ingredients

  • 4 lb Pork Roast-Bone in or Boneless (your choice)
  • 2 Tablespoons Clubhouse Italian Seasoning Spice
  • 2 Cloves Garlic (Cut in bite size pieces)
  • 1 Onion (Cut in Bite size pieces)
  • 3 medium potatoes (Washed and cut in quarters)
  • 3 Medium Carrots (peeled and cut in inch size pieces) if you like carrots

Cooking Instructions

Put the Roast in Crock Pot. If it is frozen 8 hours, 7 for Fresh or Thawed (Low Temp). With the pork roast being lean it can dry out if cooked too long. I have also wrapped it in Foil after I’ve spiced it if I’m going to be away longer than the 8 hours.

After Roast is in crock pot sprinkle with Spices, Garlic and Onion. Add Potatoes & Carrots. If you add the carrots you will be able to see it better!!!. Not totally true, however it does add an interesting flavor and color to your “Sauce”.

When your roast is cooked, 70 degrees C.or 160 degrees F—remember, your meat thermometer is your friend—Remove from Crock Pot. (If you have wrapped your roast drain juice into Crock) Pour everything left in the Crock Pot, Garlic, Onion, Potatoes and Carrots and juices into Blender. Blend til smooth (your Gravy is never lumpy and any left over sauce is a really really good and nutritious soup)

Cut up the roast as you desire and drizzle sauce over the meat for presentation purposes.

Serve immediately and ENJOY!!!!

Sausage hors d'oeuvres

Sausage hors d’oeuvres

(exit)

Bake 1 lb. frozen farmers sausage slowly in oven, 300 degrees (convection) for 2 hours. (I put in frozen, less time if thawed).

Turn after 1.5 hours to even out browning.

Take out of oven and allow to cool. (10 minutes is lots).

Cut with a serrated knife in bit size portions. By cooking thoroughly and cooling it allows for the sausage to be cut neatly. (all about presentation!!!)

Sauce

  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1/8 cup Brown Sugar
  • ¼ cup Ketchup
  • ¼ cup white vinegar

Mix together and heat two minutes in microwave in order to blend in sugar.

Add sausage and mix thoroughly with the sauce. Put all in crock pot til ready to serve. Last night was 1 hour on low. I have been known to have it on 3 hours at low. What this does is enhance the flavoring—sometimes may dry out if too long.

Serve on a really pretty plate with individual toothpicks and some spinach leaves, cut up veggies, or whatever is in your fridge. (Remember about the presentation thing).

Variations: This is a simple, very tasty recipe that you can personalize with any flavor of sausage, your favorite BBQ Sauce substitute White for Brown sugar.

See how Flexible Pork is!!!!

We have found this hors d’oeuvre to be a hit at parties, especially the teen age parties hosted at our home.

Spiced Twisted Bacon

Spiced Twisted Bacon

(exit)
  • Yield: Yield: 5 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • 10 center-cut bacon strips

Cooking Instructions

Combine the first five ingredients; rub over bacon on both sides.

Twist bacon; place on a rack in a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan.

Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until firm; bake longer if desired.

Great as a appetizer. Cut in bit sized pieces before it cools OR freeze whole strips & enjoy Baconsicles or crisp up & break into small pieces to serve as an ice cream topping (vanilla works best…in my opinion)
