New Mexican Roasted Pork

This is one of my favorite ways to make pork... who am I kidding... pretty much any way is my favorite way to make pork. :o) But here is the way we made it the other night.

In this bowl our spice rub
New Mexico green chili powder (you may not be able to find it if not that is ok it is still good without although it won't be New Mexican Pork!)
garlic powder

I have no idea how much just a hand full here and a pinch there.

You add a little oil to this bowl until you get a paste. Then you rub it all over that beautiful piece of pork.
Sear it on all sides... look at that color!!! YUM! Then de-glaze the pan with a little chicken stock. This is where I would put it in the crock pot and let it cook but tonight I started it too late and I had to finish it in the oven. Either way is delish.

For our side tonight I ran a few zucchini threw the mandolin and tossed them in a little egg whites and panko bread crumbs. And baked them at 400 until they are golden. Basically it was a baked, healthier version of tempura. (battered and fried veggies )

There you have it a quick delish week day meal.
