The classic side dishes for this Eastern European pork roast are red cabbage and steamed dumplings.
INGREDIENTS (for 5 servings):
- 3 pounds bone-in pork roast
- 2 tablespoons dried marjoram
- salt and pepper to taste
- 3 tablespoons caraway seed
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
Heat a roasting pan over medium high heat until hot. Rub the roast with the marjoram and salt and pepper to taste. Brown all sides of the roast in the hot roasting pan. Sprinkle caraway seeds over all and pour in enough water to come halfway up the sides of the roast.
Cover and place roast in the preheated oven. Bake until an internal temperature of 160 degrees F (70 degrees C) is reached, about 30 minutes per pound. Remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes before carving.
