Who doesn’t like roasted potatoes or pork? Well, not many people. I guess vegetarians must put up their hand but this dish is definitely not for them.
It’s great for lunch or dinner as its rustic goodness warms your heart and soul. I made it for 2 this time, however the recipe that I’m sharing with is for 4.
Hello, I’m Helen M. Radics and my mouth-watering, rustic Oven Roasted Pork & Potatoes could be served as lunch or dinner.
INGREDIENTS FOR MEAT (for 4)
4 slices of well marbled pork (not pork chops)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp chipotle pepper flakes (or chili pepper flakes)
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tbsp. of your favorite olive oil (I used chipotle olive oil)
20 baby carrots, washed
1 onion, peeled, sliced
10 yellow fleshed potato (or any kind you like), peeled, cut in half
2 slices of bacon cut in strips
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp chipotle or chili pepper flakes
Always remove the eyes of the potatoes
Always wash and pat dry meat. Mix together spices, salt and oil; rub into meat and place in an oven safe dish or pan. Pour 1/2 cup of water in pan. Pre-heat oven to 375F (about 180C).
Wash potatoes, remove eyes and cut in half. Mix together salt, spices and oil. Placed washed potatoes, carrots, onion slices and bacon into an over safe baking pan. Pour oil mixture over it and using hands or a large spoon coat all the potatoes, carrots, onion and bacon with it. add 1/2 cup of water.
After meat has been in the oven for 30 minutes, add 1/2 cup of more water. Bake meat and potatoes until desired tenderness is reached. Meat about 1 hour and potatoes about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
You may reduce baking time for the potatoes if you pre-cook them for about 10 minutes.
