Roasted Pork

Giana Martino


I usually make this when company comes...problem is...after eating, they want to stay!!!~

Blue Ribbon Recipe

I have cooked fish and chicken in parchment paper but never pork, so Giana's recipe really intrigued me! And... drum roll... I'm happy to report that all went well!

In preparing the recipe I did have to cut the meat into two pieces so that they would fit into my iron skillet, but it didn't seem to affect the flavor or texture of the finished product one bit.  When it was fully cooked I couldn't even wait until after we took a picture to give it a taste; it is so very tender and tasty. I am even thinking about preparing this for my Mom's birthday dinner! The Test Kitchen
