pineapple ginger pork roast and sweet rice
I took a can of pineapple in pineapple juice and emptied the juice into a caserole dish. then I ran the pineapple through the blender a bit. (You could use crushed pineapple and avoid the blender, but I didnt have any) I added a little bit of salt and probably a 1/2tsp of ginger (ground) I would use a little more ginger next time. I put a 3lb pork roast that had been cut in half on top of the juices and poured the pineapple over it.
I put it in the oven at 300 for just over an hour. The internal temp was 150 when I took it out. While it was in the oven I basted it a couple of times.
the sweet rice was really good too! It is also called sticky rice. I cook 1 cup rice in 2 cups water with a little salt. It takes about 45 minutes to cook, and it is really sticky.
