Rolled Pork Roast

Every year, for the last 17 years,  I have wanted to do something different on Thanksgiving but my family and friends were not going to have the day without turkey.  

Don’t get me wrong, I love turkey,  but I want to change it up.  I grew up eating pork lumpia, pancit, potato salad and mess of southern food on Thanksgiving so it makes sense that I like to break traditions and venture into new food realms on the holiday.

I wanted to do something fancy though and I settled on a pork recipe.  I had my butcher butterfly it and then whipped up a marinade to give it a bit more flavor and impart a holiday feel.   Some of my inspiration for this recipe came after seeing this roast pork in cranberry and orange sauce recipe.

 I know red wine is not Whole30.  If you want you could do  crushed tomatoes instead but the wine gives it a really warm taste.

Ok, when this bad boy is roasting in your oven it’s going to give off a bunch of juice.  

I basted the roast in it and saved the broth for another dish.   Also,  if you marinade it in wine, when you first cut it, it will have a slight pink tinge at the inner areas.  

At first, I was like, oh my God it’s not done.  It is, well, if the inner temperature is 165 and you cook it as the direction state, but that is the wine so don’t freak out like I did.

  1. This sounds so good! I know what you mean about turkey on Thanksgiving, though. ๐Ÿ™‚ But since I haven’t cooked my own Thanksgiving meal in years, because we go out of town to spend it with my mom, I’m happy to eat turkey. I may think about this for Christmas, though (which is traditionally, ham). ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Good for you for doing something different! I always think it’s so funny that people get so stuck on eating turkey and other specific foods on Thanksgiving, they seem to lose sight of the fact that Thanksgiving isn’t all about the food.

  3. I love the idea of doing something different then the traditional turkey and as a pork lover, this looks amazing. BTW, BOTH of my brother in laws are Filipino so I’m down for lumpia and pancit ANY time and always!
