Our youngest son who loves to cook said it was one of the best recipes he'd ever had.

If anyone would like the recipe I would be happy to type it out for the thread. I served it as they showed in the picture -with sweet potatoes and green beans. My son made his favorite salad -mixed greens and baby spinach, feta cheese, shoestring potatoes and red onions. Mmmmm! We each had a glass of Guinness and some coffee with our meal. Delicious!

I'd love the recipe!

Maple Pepper Salmon with asparagus (with lots of lemon and pepper!), lemon couscous and a tropical fruit salad for dessert (I spent waaaay more on exotic fruits than I should have, but they're so YUMMY!).

Hi Tricia!

Here's the recipe!


Daniel Boulud's Pork Shoulder With Guinness, Cherries, and Sweet Potatoes

Do this first step the night before:

5 Cups Guinness Stout
1 Cup dried cherries
1/3 Cup Balsamic vinegar

Combine these ingredients together in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Transfer the mixture to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Cooking day:

2 Tablespoons olive oil
Salt
Pepper
5 1/2 Lb. pork shoulder roast
3 large red onions, peeled and sliced
1/2 tsp. coarse black pepper
4 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
1 Tablespoon tomato paste (I used tomato sauce and added about 1/4 c.)
5 pieces allspice, crushed
2 bay leaves
1/4 cup molasses
3 Tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 cups water

2-3 pounds of sweet potatoes (I used about eight which was three pounds.)
(The recipe said to add them after the first hour, but I boiled them separately just like you would regular potatoes and then mashed them.)


Heat oven to 300 degrees. Warm 2 Tablespoons olive oil in a Dutch oven on top of the stove. Sprinkle salt and pepper on all sides of the pork roast. Sear meat on all sides. Remove meat from pan and place on a platter. Saute onions and garlic in Dutch Oven. Add remaining ingredients to onion and garlic mixture. Add the pork roast to the pan of ingredients and bring to a simmer on the stove. (I scooped some of the onion/garlic/cherry mixture onto the roast.) Cover pot, transfer to oven. Cook for one hour. Turn pork roast, and cook for two additional hours.

I served this with green beans, the mashed sweet potatoes and a salad. VERRRY Yum!! Oh, and we all had a glass of Guinness, too!

Cheryl

Tricia I am sooo glad you liked the asparagus. I stupidly ran out of garlic powder this weekend. So I chopped up fresh garlic, tons of it. It is worth the tiny bit of extra effort. It was so much better. My kids and hubby could not get enough of it. The garlic gets all roasted, it was fantastic.

Cassi, I'm glad you liked the squash. In my former life it was something I never would have tried. Amazing how our tastes change and what we can discover when we're looking to eat healthier.

Talking No Meat For Me

My wonderful husband is a light meat eater, and I cannot eat land meats at all. Fish and shellfish do not make me sick, but pigs, cows, and birds do everytime. Dinner around here is usually served in front of our computers. (Don't worry, we sit side-by-side. ) Anyway, I am having trouble, on such a limited budget, to come up with things that we both can eat. Usually, food does not leave me satisfied. Tonight, I made mixed a can of tuna with some non-fat mayo and had that with some saltine crackers. Later, I fixed some asparagus-straight from a can. My husband, nuked a can of beef stew, and was fine with that. (Oh!.. we both had fresh apples, as well!) If anyone can give me some cheap and healthy ideas, please PM me and let me know.

Dinner tonight is tons of spinach and mushrooms and onions sauteed with garlic and then I add/cook chicken breasts chunks to it. Also add a little chicken broth. Very good and oh so very healthy.

Tilapia, baked in parchment so it steams, with lemon juice, garlic, and shallot, plus a little thyme...my favorite fish preparation.

Whole grain rice pilaf and roasted asparagus on the side.

Well, I over did it this evening. I ate the whole pan of roasted asparagus for dinner myself. I did also have 3 ounces of salmon - I did the numbers, and even though I ate the WHOLE pan, it was under 100 calories.
