We recently had some friends over for dinner and were looking for an easy meal that would taste great and allow us to interact versus stay in the kitchen.
The veggies were super easy.
For the potatoes, earlier in the day I soft boiled the potatoes, and just before they were cooked through I drained them, put them in an ice bath and drained them again.
Put them small potatoes (or cut pieces that you boiled) in the freezer until ready to use.
You're not trying to freeze them but create a cold shield. That cold outer edge will pay off and add an extra layer of crunch when it meats hot oil.
The beans were also pre-steamed and them closer to serving I heated up my @breville wok and tossed them in butter and sesame seeds.
Not to brag- but there is something so wonderful and simple about green beans, butter and seeds - it's a crowd favourite!
Now - obviously I am bias, but I loved this pork. Granted I made the recipe after stalking multiple recipes and websites and combined it to get my perfect flavour profile. We served this with apple chutney and the salty sweet was amazing!
HERE IS HOW TO DUPLICATE THIS:

After the pork marinades, prep a cookie tray by lining it with a metal cooling tray that is sprayed with oil.
Wrap the marinaded pork with slices of
Cook for 18-22 minutes or until you reach you desired level of cooked through (NOTE: I remove my pork early and wrap in tinfoil until it finishes cooking).
Stay tuned for my cheesecake recipe that will be posted soon! It's a great way to end your evening.
I love to cook, entertain, craft and create - all while being a wife, friend, daughter and a mom to a little boy.
