Sunday Cook #20 Roasted pork with potatoes and carrots [Original recipe]

in food •  3 years ago 

Hello, Steemian fellows!

I'm back with one of my marvelous SundayCook's!!

Ahah ;) I'm being cocky, I know!! But this one totally deserves it!

It's amazing to order food in a restaurant and just leave without the dish washing, but I missed preparing my Sunday cooks​!!

As cold days returned, I went for another roast (for me a roast is a kind of a Sunday Cook synonym). When I entered in the butcher I only knew it would be a roast and picked the nicest piece of meat that was available. I choose a piece of pork neck.

Probably you had already watched some of my previous roasted pork posts, but I did something different this time. I didn't want it regular ;)

This Sunday I cooked

Roasted pork with potatoes and carrots



  • 1,5 Kg pork loin
  • 4 potatoes
  • 3 carrots
  • 2 medium onions
  • 4 twigs of fresh thyme
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 1 bay leaf
  • olive oil (to taste)
  • white wine (to taste)
  • 1 lemon juice
  • black pepper (to taste)
  • sweet pepper (1 teaspoon, just to had color to the meat)
  • salt (to taste)


1 - Previously season the pork with salt, black and sweet pepper, bay leaf, chopped garlic, white wine and lemon juice. I let this marinate during the night in the fridge.
2 - Pre-heat the oven 180 ºC - 200ºC.
Pick a roaster tray and cover it with sliced onion. Then add the pork and seasoned gravy, add the olive oil and it's ready to go to the oven.
3 - Meanwhile, unpeel the potatoes and carrots and place them in a pan with boiling water seasoned with salt and fresh thyme. Let it cook for 5 minutes (I didn't want they get fully cooked).
4 - Cut the potatoes and carrots in nice pieces (I'm not good cutting raw carrots into uniform pieces, this way helped a lot)

5 - Place the vegetables in the roaster tray and sprinkle with the released juices.

6 - Place the roaster tray in the oven until​ the meat is cooked at your point.

It's ready!! Let's serve it!!

Facts: Sunday cooks always have a great aroma, and this fresh thyme...yum! I serve this with cabbage...



and washed down with an angolan beer Cuca.

Hope you enjoyed it!!

I will come back with another Sunday cook delicious :D Stay tuned!!

What is Sunday Cook?!

These Sunday Cook project began with a strong will to contribute to Steemit with my personal view of Portuguese cuisine. I really believe we have plenty of good food. I'm not a professional or nothing similar, but I can assure that I'll do my best! On Sundays, I like to prepare more elaborate and delicious foo​d. It requires time and patient. Usually, I cook some traditional Portuguese food, or at least with Portuguese inspiration :) I try to do it in a healthier way, using the minimum fat as possible, and normally I pick some recipe and transform it. During the week I don't like to spend much time cooking (no time at all), that's why I get totally motivated to cook on Sundays!!
