Freezer-Friendly Savory Roast Pork Recipe To Try Today!
I love serving this roast pork savory dish with some glazed carrots, garlic mushrooms, roasted potatoes, or herbed rice. You can experiment as much as you want with any side dishes.
You will also need garlic powder, dry thyme, paprika, salt, black pepper, one boneless pork loin, and chicken broth.
If you need to switch some ingredients out, you absolutely can. Try using minced garlic, dry oregano, cumin, ginger, red pepper flakes, pork chops, ribs, beef broth, or vegetable broth.
On the other hand, you could also add more ingredients. Make this meal an Asian fusion by adding soy sauce, honey, brown sugar, lemongrass, and sriracha. To make this savory roast into something Italian, add more herbs, like oregano, basil, dill, and a touch of olive oil.
When you are ready, mix the spices to make a rub, and spread it onto your pork. Place the seasoned pork with broth in a roasting pan, and add any side dishes you want. I love adding carrots, potatoes, or even Brussels sprouts.
Bake your pork for about three hours and serve warm.
Freezing and Unfreezing the Pork
To refrigerate the roast pork savory meal, let it cool down entirely. Place it in an airtight container and keep it in the fridge for up to four days. Warm it in the oven when ready to eat.
Alternatively, to freeze your meal, follow the instructions up until the roasting step. Place the pork in an airtight container or freezer bag. Label and date it, and freeze for up to eight months. Thaw it overnight in the fridge, and cook it according to directions.
