Sorry this post is a little late, I was a little out of it last week. This year PH and I hosted Easter dinner at our house. I always like having family gatherings in our home, it's part of the reason we bought this house, it's a great space for parties. Of course, clean up afterwards is always a hassle, but I love having family in my home where we can laugh and make memories. Plus, its so much easier with a tiny one to have the event in your home. You can still stick them in their own bed for nap time and you don't have to deal with an overtired baby crying the whole way home because she doesn't understand why you won't hold her when she doesn't want to be in her car seat.
Anyway, my mom and discussed beforehand what we would have for dinner. My SIL isn't a huge fan of ham. She always tells us not to plan a meal around her preferences, but I am not a huge fan of ham either, so I was happy to opt for something else. We discussed lamb, but that can be so expensive. Well I had pork loin in my freezer, so I suggested we have that. My mom had some in her freezer so we each made one. She did a completely different recipe for hers, so it was nice to have options. Maybe she will share her recipe here.
I decided to make this Balsamic Brown Sugar Pork Roast. I had seen a recipe for something similar, but with bourbon. Well, I don't drink alcohol, and I know they say it burns off in the cooking, but alcohol is also expensive to buy and since I'm on unpaid leave at work. I decided to work with what we have. I thought Balsamic vinegar would pair nicely with brown sugar for that sweet and sour flavor. PH really loves the sweet and sours, and he asked me later if we could make that sauce and put it on everything. Balsamic Brown Sugar Everything! I don't know about necessarily putting it on EVERYTHING, but this Balsamic Brown Sugar Pork Roast was certainly a hit!
At the end of the dinner when we were cleaning up, there was only a small portion of this Balsamic Brown Sugar Pork Roast left!
The great thing about this recipe is how the meat really falls apart. You could make balsamic brown sugar pork roast pulled pork sandwiches if you end up with any left overs!
