Pork with Shallot Sage Sauce and Roasted Butternut Squash

This week I tried to figure out a few things to make for dinner and so far, I’ve done a pretty good job. Monday was pulled pork with roasted green beans. Tuesday was empanadas of a sort and today was roasted pork with a shallot sage sauce and roasted butternut squash. The pork was really good and the empanadas were not bad. But the pork … oh it was a hit!

I started with a nice pork loin. I coated it in a mixture of mustard, brown sugar and pepper. Onto the grill while the squash I just coated in some oil, salt and pepper and added a little onion and popped into the oven. For the sauce I chopped shallot and into the frying pan with some butter. I added some cider vinegar and then some veggie broth. After it reduced by about half, I added some fresh chopped sage, pepper and cream. Let that all mix together and we have sauce.

The end result was a nicely flavored dish with perfectly cooked pork. Add a little cucumber salad and we have dinner. Bob was suitably impressed with dinner and said I “outdid” myself. I’ll take it.

Hopefully the Thai Beef Salad for dinner with John tomorrow will be just as good.
