i was looking in the fridge trying to decide what to make for you guys and i noticed this little roast that could have been so predictable but i saw some promise. i have to say off the bat that i don’t do the grocery shopping. for one, i have no memory and will buy eggs 3 times a week if i happen to think of eggs. but the other reason is my wife is like a good deal superhero, nothing delicious on sale can escape her notice. so for the most of my cooking is looking in the fridge and hoping that the muse speaks to me.
i came across a smallish pork roast that was actually two large tenderloins smashed together and i thought that it would a great opportunity to make a stuffed bbq pork. to be honest, i had never made this before and i was going on what i remembered from food videos in the past. but since i seem to get it right the first time for some reason (i use all my luck on food) i thought that it would be a great thing to share. i didn’t do anything amazingly new or inventive but i knew that it would be a spin to pop this roast on the bbq. i didn’t have any hardwood so i wasn’t able to smoke this roast but the searing on the outside was just perfect to change a standard dish into something amazing.
i included a rough outline of the recipe after the video but i’m not going to post one here for a couple of reasons. one, this type of cooking lends itself to any kind of stuffing as long as it bring a new flavour to the table. second, i rarely use a recipe and i tend to wing it. thridly, i like to use what is available at the time to keep things fresh and new. if people write me and want a more specific recipe i will write one out, but i would encourage you to be a little more flexible. try something new and experiment with the things that you have. try to buy local and fresh. see something that you’ve never cooked with before – give it a try. have fun with it. but remember to have hotdogs in the freezer i case you make a huge mistake and need to feed the kids. haha. i have done this before, not often, but it has happened that i have made some horrible mistake and eaten something that was just not right. but that happens and you learn from it. but it is never a disaster unless you have tried to feed kids a not-so-great meal.
all the best,
