I’ve been making pot roast for years, and every time I follow the same recipe. I always use apple cider vinegar and some typical seasonings. Since shifting my eating habits I haven’t had pot roast in a very long time, but I decided that this one particular Sunday night needed Sunday dinner. I also decided that I wanted to change things up a bit and try something new with my standard pot roast. I don’t typically eat pork because it’s still very important to me to stay on track with my healthy habits. But I’ve found that the best way for me, is to simply do things in moderation, inserting a few forbidden things every now and again. This Sunday was going to be a pork Sunday.
As I strolled down the aisles of the Target grocery store it dawned on me that I should try a honey mustard flavored pot roast. Honey always pairs well with pork, and the mustard would balance out the sweetness. So I set out to create this new version of an old thing. The roast was delicious, but I didn’t taste enough of the honey so I’m going to experiment a bit more with it. For now, this first take is certainly worth the time it takes.
