Pork studded with garlic and chilled butter spears.
Who takes the time to slot holes in your pork roast and shove yum potential right in? Where do these recipes come from? It’s so easy to shove a pork roast in the oven for a couple of low heating hours and fill in the gaps with a sauce and a song.
But I took the time. Then I gave it a right browning. And then I covered it with thyme. The recipe called for rosemary, but my rosemary was killed by those damn free range chickens. So I went to a likeness of my favorite seasoning, Zatar. This is a wonderful mix of Lebanese magic and thyme that I learned from my friend Bassam. I absolutely love Zatar and I think I need to make Zatar ice cream just to show how much I care.
Cover that lovin’ with some thin bacon. If you can find bacon without sugar, then you will love yourself even more ( if that’s possible ).
This will be cooked slowly for an hour and a half. I have peppers and leeks. Hopefully there’s something there if I add garlic, onions and a splash of celery.
