I like to roast massive hunks of meat. It’s straightforward and fast to organize, the meat lasts a number of nights (yay for leftovers!), the meat is often less expensive per pound than extra labor intensive (by the butcher) cuts, and roasts are scrumptious! That is my favourite solution to cook dinner a pork loin roast, which is surprisingly lean. I sometimes purchase typical pork loin as a result of it’s so lean (a minimum of till I can afford to eat pastured meat solely!). I like to purchase the entire tenderloins at Costco (sometimes round $2/pound) and butcher them myself (takes about 5 minutes to chop it into three 3lb roasts which I pack in massive ziplock freezer luggage after which toss in my freezer). I additionally often skip the elective step of “marinating” the pork since I don’t sometimes plan that far forward. In case you are considering forward although, it’s value it!
