This is the third week of the “Pork: Be Inspired” Good and Good for you challenge project from Publix and the National Pork Board. This week Port Roast is on sale for $3.99 so be sure to snag some up so you can make a healthy family dinner.
Dinner last night was a challenge for us. We aren’t a roast loving family but I was determined to find a recipe that we could all like and explore outside our usual pork chop safe zone.
Last week I made Game-Day inspired Beer-Grilled Pork Chops, while the week before I made Pork Tenderloin Sliders. This week I aimed for a Heart-y and Healthy Valentine’s inspired meal. I decided on a roast called Italian Porketta that I found on the National Pork Board PorkBeInspired.com
2-4 pounds bone-in or boneless pork loin roast
3 tablespoons dill seed
1 tablespoon fennel seed
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon lemon pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine seasonings together and coat roast with mixture. Roast in a shallow pan with rack for 40 minutes-1 1/2 hour (20 minutes per pound), until internal temperature reads 145-155 degrees F. Let roast rest 10 minutes before slicing to serve. (remember a little pink is ok)
As I said, we aren’t a huge roast fan (pork or beef) so although this was a taste and very heart healthy meal, I don’t think we’ll be making it again.
