Asian Pork Roast with Turnips & Bok Choy

Sherri Williams


This recipe is special because it's a twist on one of my mom's favorite Sunday meals. Her pork roast was always a crowd pleaser. My dad inspired my brothers, sisters and I to try different cuisines when growing up. Asian cuisine was one of his favorites. The southern ingredients fused with the asian flavors are a marriage made in heaven, just like my parents. This is dedicated to my late father Walter and my wonderful mama Nancy.
