Braised Pork with Rosemary and Mushrooms {Arrosto con il Rosmarino}

I could tell you how incredibly insanely delicious that braised pork roast is in the photo. OR how I used it to make not one but three meals. But I know you see that gorgeous cassis Le Creuset in the photo and you see giveaway in the title and now you’re heart is beating a little faster and you’re just not thinking clearly. It’s not your fault. It is Le Creuset after all. So I’m just going to get right to it. Christmas is coming a little early for someone. ONE lucky bell’alimento reader is going to WIN one of those for her {or him} self!

It’s a beauty, a 6 3/4 quart oval French oven. It holds A LOT and that’s a good thing for me because we have 5 people {plus one fur baby in our family} we need a workhorse. I braised a 4 pound pork roast in this beauty and there was still tons of room. I was able to get not one but three meals out of such a large piece of meat. Saving me time and money!

The first meal we simply sliced the gorgeous roast and served it with a potato gratin {recipe coming SOON}. For a second meal we made those gorgeous pork sliders with mushroom sauce, which were so good we ate them as a third meal too. The oval french oven is so versatile I KNOW I’m going to be using it often. So often, I’m going to just leave it on my stove.


Features:

  • An elongated oval shape designed for longer cuts of meat
  • Even heat distribution and superior heat retention for cooking on the stovetop or finishing in the oven
  • Durable, nonreactive sand-colored interior enamel provides a smooth surface for cooking, as well as an optimal palette for food presentation
  • Colorful, long-lasting exterior enamel that resists chipping and cracking
  • A secure lid that locks in heat and moisture while cooking
  • Phenolic knob withstands temperatures up to 375°F
  • The lightest weight per quart of any premium cast iron cookware available

    OK. I could totally do a vegan version of this recipe. And there were so many incredible options on the LeCreuset site, but I had to go with the blue (SKU L2502-31). My daughter says it would go really well with our kitchen! Besides, cobolt blue is the color of the season…and I am nothing if not totally into the colors of the season! Thanks for another great giveaway!
