Stuffed Pork with Some Roasted Potatoes

Here is another somewhat easier meal to do if you take the time and plan ahead. In this case, I made some simple roasted pork along with some potatoes to go with.

From my past experiences working in a meat room during part of my college tenure, I came to learn the various cuts of meat as well as different cuts of meat which are in actuality the same thing, just cut differently to look different. This is very apparent when it comes to boneless pork. Your boneless roasts are utilized as: roasts, pork chops (thick or thin) and also these lovely pieces they call country-style ribs (comes from the end roasts as opposed to the chops coming from the center part). So as it is cheaper by the pound to get the roast, I do that and then cut at home to whatever thickness I may choose. For the instances of stuffing- I make them a little thicker. I typically buyt whatever else I may need in the same grocery trip (unless I already have the needed supplies) so then when I get home, I can prep the meals, and then freeze the meals.

Here, I did a simple stuffing of apple pieces, diced up red onion, some brie cheese, and I crushed up some walnuts. Put these in a bowl together, mix and then cut a slit in the middle of the chops (not quite all the way through) and then stuff. Then weeks later since these are prepped and frozen, I can take them out and toss right in the oven.

The potatoes I find it quicker to par-boil them, rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process, dice up and then sautee in oil and other spices. Here I used some olive oil, cut up some garlic, sweet paprika, salt, and some fresh parsley.

Enjoy.
