There is nothing more satisfying than having your son, locked up in the basement, playing his rat-tat-tat game coming upstairs to say: ”What the heck smells so good!”
Love it! It’s the reason I make an effort to make something different pretty much every night (that I actually cook, of course! - ‘coz I am not against throwing a Ristorante pizza or two into the oven and eating 12 minutes later”!!!)
So, I had a pork sirloin roast to cook and didn’t feel like doing the same-old, same-old. Long-live Google!!! I found a lovely herb/spice rub with paprika, salt, pepper, thyme, oregano, cayenne, garlic powder, onion powder & olive oil to mix it all together into a nice paste… let the mix rest for a good 15 minutes, rub all over the pork and bake at 350 F for an hour….
Had a bunch of root veg thinking of starting to rot in the fridge so I made a little “macédoine” with rutabaga, carrot, leek, onion, broccoli. I added some home-made chicken stock, some dried chili flakes, S&P…. yum.
Add some leftover basmati rice so threw that on as well.
I have to say, I was quite pleased!
