Herb & Garlic Encrusted Rack of Pork


As I mentioned in my last post, cooking with a rack of pork is an entirely new experience for me. I spent hours trying to decide how to prepare it and came up with a list of over 20 different possibilities. I was struggling to choose so I asked Eric for his input. His thought … Read more
