Pork Loin Roast...sort of.

Well...not everything I cook turns out. Those of you who know me know that I was sort of a vegitarian for years. I never cooked meat and rarely ate it. So I have little experience cooking it. This pork roast is beautiful but the time or temperature in the "Gourmet" recipe was off. So the dang thing was not done and we were hungry! So I ended up slicing thick slices off and pan frying them like pork chops. They turned out pretty good that way.

I started out with tons of garlic

Added dried oregano and course salt and fresh pepper (to this I later added orange juice and lime juice and marinaded the pork roast for several hours)

I pan fried the outside of the roast for a few minutes and then added it to the pot with all kinds of veggies including watermelon radish which are my current favorite.

Oops almost forgot the shitake! These are locally grown right out on the Olympic Peninsula
