This was very good! The pork came out so very tender and tasty. The cooking method was perfect - flattening the meat first was really the secret here, I think. The reason for the 4 stars is the sauce - which while still flavorful, tasted overly of tomato. I think the tomato paste drowned out much of the rosemany and orange flavors that I had been expecting - I would use less next time and perhaps shred in some fresh orange zest to perk up the orange flavor a bit, as well as much more rosemary (or fresh if available).

Very busy nanny/au pair, working for a very rich and snooty family, in a very large home, in a very snooty village. Just in case my employer comes here, please don't ask where I am from, or I'll be sacked like the last nanny was. ;-) I take care of 4 gorgeous, and darling kids. 3 girls and a boy. The boy is the youngest (and my favorite). They are great children, very, very active. (Hyper) I love to cook. I guess that's a given, why else would I be here. Part of my job is also to prepare meals for the family. The more they like my food, the longer I get to stay. (just a little joke) On my day off, I usually go out to the cinema or some dance clubs with the other au pairs in this town. That's about it I think.
