Braised Pork Roast with potatoes and carrots

This will be the first time I will be cooking with some wine. I'm not using a lot but oh boy does this taste good.

Clicking on the Read More button will transfer you to more pictures and of course the recipe.

This may take a while to prepare, but the results are well worth the time.

The Ingredients:
  • One plain pork loin. (Not seasoned. You can do that on your own!)
  • 2 lbs carrots
  • 2 large onions
  • garlic
  • garlic powder
  • Thyme
  • Sage
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • White Wine
  • Chicken Stock
  • Olive Oil

Preparation and Cooking time: approx. 3 Hours.

So, here's what you will need.

Chop up the onions, put aside.

Grab about 5 garlic cloves and mince them into small pieces.

Turn on stove to medium, add oil to pan.

Wash and clean the carrots, cut in thirds and put them under hot water.

Take your roast out of the plastic bag.

Time for the seasoning. Grab the salt, pepper and garlic powder.

I took about this much sage.

And rubbed it all over the pork.

Now, wash your hands :)
The oil in your pan should be nice and hot by now. Time for the roast to go in, be careful.

Let it brown for several minutes, then flip. It should look something like this.

Once its done on both sides, put it on a plate and cover it.

Now, using the remaining oil in our pan we add our onions, minced garlic and a couple pinches of thyme.

Now, let some juice out and add the carrots. Then top it all off with wine. It should look something like this.

Add the roast and let it cook  Cover it and bake it at 350° F for two hours.

Then remove the roast to a plate and let it cool off. Also remove the carrots.

Add the Chicken Stock to remaining Liquid in pan to make the gravy.

Serve with whatever you like, I chose mashed potatoes. :)
