I made herbed pork and apples. Three kinds of herbs, which were thyme, rosemary and marjoram, were used for this meal. Marjoram is less common than other herbs, since it was sold only at one grocery store out of four near my house.

According to the recipe two pounds of pork loin is required, but I thought it was too much for just my wife and me. So I decided to make half of that amount. Cooking with foreign recipes is so complicated! The quantity of each ingredient is indicated in different units such as lb. Even the measuring utensils  are different too.


Finally, I managed to make it. The meat looked almost the same as Japanese style roasted pork which is served on ramen noodles. The herbs stimulated my appetite and got rid of the gamey smell. The tartness of the apples reduced the sweetness of the brown sugar and maple syrup. This was a new taste for me, because usually we don’t cook fruits. Because I ate this with rice, it might have tasted sweeter, so I will make it less sweet next time. It was delicious!

P.S. I forgot to add a very important herb in this meal. It is SAGE.
