I found this recipe online earlier in the year and I have tweaked it to fit my needs( namley portions and tastes)
The recipe I have here if enough to feed 8 people and have some left overs. This recipe can be reduced or expanded as needed.
The grocery store near my house will often have whole pork loins on sale and when they do I will get one.
The loin usually averages 10-12 lbs so I will take 1/2 to 2/3 of it and slice it into pork cutlet. the rest I will set aside to make a roast with. This is one recipe for preparing the roast.
Step 1: Assemble your ingredients
2 cups water
1 cup red quinoa
1/2 cup olive oil
2 onions chopped
8 cloves garlic
2 medium size (or 4 small) apples diced
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup pine nuts
1/2 lb mushrooms chopped
1/2 cup of white wine
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
for those who are not familiar with garam masala it is a flavorful blend of spices popular in many dishes with their origin in India. The mixture varies depending on who manufactures it. Ingredients for garam masala can include but are not limited to peppercorns, cloves, malabar, mace, cumin, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, star anise, and coriander.
