servings: 8 / preparation time: 2 hours

 

Ingredients:

1 pork sirloin roast (about 4 lbs)

2 tbs oil (olive or vegetable)

salt and Tabasco pepper to taste

5 mashed garlic cloves

juice of 1 lemon

thyme and rosemary to taste (about 1 tbs)

a pinch of paprika

1 cup red wine

2 lbs baby potatoes, washed

 

Directions:

1 – In a bowl with lid, season the meat with oil, salt, pepper, garlic, lemon, thyme, rosemary and paprika. Mix well, using your hands.

2 – Add the wine and mix again. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

3 – Preheat the oven to 425°F. Place meat, potatoes and the broth from the bowl in a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.

4 – Turn the potatoes and bake for about 1 hour at 350°F. Depending on the size and how you like the meat cooked, more time may be required.

5 – Remove from the oven and cover lightly with foil, so that the meat rest for 15-20 minutes. Slice and serve.

 

Tips and Options:

  • To get even tastier, season the meat 1 day before and refrigerate.
  • If the baking sheet starts to dry during cooking, add a little water.
  • As side dishes, serve white rice, mashed potatoes, green salad and/or garlic bread.
  • Freeze the leftovers, chopped or shredded. That will make a delicious sandwich. For that, sauté the meat in the onion, garlic, tomato, lemon and olive oil.
