Mulled whiners spice it up
The quiz happened. We found out that Handsome Ben is single. "The Mulled Whiners" won.
I turned 49 on Friday and I have been given 50 challenges to do before I turn 50. Follow me on insta @alex50challenges.
Did my first today. Cooked Schweinebraten. Recipe is here:
Combine salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika and caraway seed in a small bowl. Rub mustard over all surfaces of pork and then spread the seasonings evenly over the outside.
Add vegetable oil to a Dutch oven and heat to medium high heat. Once hot, place the roast in the oven and brown on all sides. When browned, remove the pork and set aside.
After removing the browned pork, add the onion and carrots and cook until soft. Once soft, pour in 1 cup chicken broth and beer. Use a wooden spoon to scrape browned bits of pork and veggies from the bottom of the Dutch oven into the liquid. Simmer for five minutes.
Add the pork back into the Dutch oven and place into an oven heated to 350ºF. Cook uncovered for 3 hours, until the internal temperature of the pork is 165ºF.
Once the pork is done cooking, remove the pork from the Dutch oven and set aside for slicing. Strain the remaining liquid out from the Dutch oven into a sauce pan. Add one more cup of chicken broth to the liquid and bring to a boil. Once boiled, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the sauce is thickened to your liking. If desired, you can thicken the sauce with flour.
After letting the roast sit for 15 minutes, slice the roast into thin slices and serve with gravy over top and sauerkraut and potato dumplings on the side. Enjoy!
Dutch oven! Too funny.
