“My new favorite way to roast pork is flavorful and juicy and oh-so good roasted with red onions and parsnips. This recipe is from Cook's Country. They suggest you buy a pork loin NOT enhanced with that mystery solution "because it causes the pork to exude excess liquid as it cooks, inhibiting the caramelization of the vegetables". Besides, who wants mystery solutions in their food?”
