Vegetable Medley Cooked With Pork and Caraway Seed

Updated on September 9, 2017

My husband and I are what could be called "foodies." We enjoy sampling and discovering new & different foods from all areas of the world.

Shopping at Costco

My husband and I were shopping in our big warehouse store called Costco recently and they had some good looking pork sirloin tip roasts in the case. The meat looked very lean and the price was good so we decided to take some home with us.

Like everything in these warehouse stores, the quantities are generally large. Sealed in plastic packaging was actually 4 roasts. In this original recipe that I created I only used one of them and the other 3 are now in our freezer.

I had no idea what I would be doing with this pork sirloin at first so went back to memories of my mother cooking delicious pork roasts with onion, garlic and caraway seed. That makes for a great flavor combination using those ingredients plus salt and pepper.

Since this particular cut of meat is leaner than most I knew that it would need juices surrounding it and probably a long and slow cooking time. So armed with that in mind, I looked in our refrigerator and pantry and concocted the following recipe.

Prepping the Pork

After removing the pork from the packaging, I washed it under running water and patted it dry using paper towels.

Using a sharp knife I then removed most of the visible silver skin which is a tough membrane that is white in appearance.

Once getting it started on one end it is easy to pull it up and continue to run the knife up against it pulling it away from the meat in a sawing motion.

This shows how to remove silver skin from pork tenderloin but it can be applied to any other cut of meat as well.

Reasons to remove the silver skin are two fold. The skin can shrink during the cooking process and cause the meat to buckle and and not stay flat.

This is more important when cooking tenderloin chops and the like.

Herbs and spices one might be using get infused into the meat flavoring it better than if it stays on top of this tough membrane.

Next, using a sharp knife I cut the roast opening it up to make a greater surface area but kept the roast intact. I tried to get is as even as I could.

Pounding the roast to tenderize it the next step was to sprinkle salt and pepper as well as garlic powder over the surface of both sides of the roast.

Setting the meat aside I next prepared the vegetables that were to be used for this recipe.

List of Ingredients

  • Pork Sirloin Tip Roast - the one I used was about 1 3/4 pound
  • Cabbage - 1 small head
  • Large Sweet Onion
  • Several Zucchini - 2 large or 3 to 4 small
  • Shredded Carrots - 2 or 3 large ones
  • Large Apple - I used Gala
  • Fresh Parsley
  • Salt & Freshly Ground Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • Paprika
  • Caraway Seeds

These were the seasonings used in this recipe.

Directions

I used a large stainless steel rectangular baking dish and sprayed it liberally with Pam so that the ingredients would bake and not stick to the pan.

The next step was to slice the cabbage in approximately 3/4's to 1 inch slices and lay them down in the pan as the first layer.

I followed that with thin slices of the sweet onion covering the first layer of cabbage.

Note: Season each layer with a small amount of salt and pepper to taste and every couple of layers as you build the base for the pork sprinkle some caraway seeds.

Layering the Ingredients

As you can tell from the photo above, I seasoned the onion layer with some of the caraway seeds and am now laying the sliced zucchini over the onions.

Next step was to add shredded carrots over the zucchini.

Add more salt and fresh ground pepper at this point. Use a light hand as you apply it as you do not want this vegetable medley to become too salty. This helps to build a depth of flavor in the eventual outcome of this dish.

Wait until this stage to slice your apple (or apples, if they happen to be small) as you do not want them to oxidize and turn brown. I left the skin on for added nutrients.

The apples lend a slight natural sweetness to this dish. Apples and pork are often a good marriage of flavors.

Layer the apple slices over the shredded carrots as seen in these photos.

The final layer prior to adding the meat was to sprinkle fresh parsley over the top.

Normally I use flat Italian parsley in cooking but this curly parsley from my garden was starting to bolt and go to seed. So I pulled it up and planted more Italian leaf parsley in its place, but did not want for it to go to waste.

It is being used liberally in many different recipes coming from our kitchen until it is gone. It also tastes good, but is great when used as well for garnishing a plate of food.

I grew up with the "Waste not, want not" school of thinking.

Recipe from the Sirloin Tip Roast Package

The sirloin tip roast directions on the package if one were to roast it intact as as it comes had the following directions:

  • 1. Preheat oven to 325ºF.
  • 2. Remove meat from package, lightly coat roast with olive oil and season as desired.
  • 3. Place roast in oven safe dish.
  • 4. Cook uncovered for approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes or until internal temperature on a meat thermometer reaches 160ºF. in the thickest part of the meat.
  • 5. Remove from oven and let rest 3 minutes.
  • 6. Slice across small ends into 1/8″ slices and serve.

I might give this recipe a try next time, but I wished to use the many vegetables that I had on hand for the recipe that I created and am sharing here.

Seasoned pork put on top of the layered veggies.

As you can see from the photo above, the already flattened and pounded pork that was seasoned with salt, pepper and powdered garlic powder was laid on top of the parsley.

At this point give it a final liberal topping of more caraway seeds and the paprika (as much or as little as you wish) and more garlic powder if you like.

Tightly seal the pan with aluminum foil and put it into a preheated oven at 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

These vegetables that are baked in a slow oven will draw juices and keep everything moist. No added liquid is necessary.

Start checking after an hour of baking time to see how this meal is progressing. It was intended to bake this meal slowly over a long period of time. Depending upon the fat content of your meat it may cook faster. A sirloin tip roast is extremely lean.

Our meal was ready in a little over 2 hours of baking time, but ovens can vary as well as different cuts of meat.

About halfway through the cooking process I flipped the meat over and spooned some of the juices and a few of the vegetables over the top.

When the meat was fork tender I took it out of the baking pan removing it from the rest of the vegetables and put it on a plate as shown below. After a few minutes of resting time it got sliced and was served over a mound of the mixture of vegetables with a side dish of some horseradish mashed potatoes.

While the meat is resting to allow the juices to remain in the meat, it can be tented with a piece of foil to keep it warm.

Value of Using Caraway Seeds

They are not only high in fiber helping bowels to stay regular and preventing cancers in the colon, but are full of healthful vitamins and minerals plus anti-oxidants for good measure.

Does eating cabbage make you gassy? The caraway seeds actually help treat flatulence as well as problems of indigestion.

It is often paired with dishes containing sauerkraut or cabbage and is also found in products like breads, cakes and even cheese and sausage.

Calories are low coming in at 5 calories for 3/4 of a teaspoon.

It can freshen breath and is found in some mouthwash preparations as well as some lotions and soaps. It is a very versatile little seed!

Vegetable Medley with Pork and Caraway Seed

This original recipe turned out to be delicious.

We are still eating it and the meat has stayed moist and delicious flavored as it was with the juices of the combined ingredients.

Hope that you enjoy it as much as we have if you decide to make it.

Obviously this is a meal where ingredients and amounts of items can easily be altered to suit your taste.

Enjoy!

      Hi Audrey,

      Thanks for sharing my recipe with your son. Hope he likes it. It would be hard for me to totally give up eating meat...especially pork. Kudos to you for doing it!

      Before I became a full fledged vegetarian I couldn't resist pork. I grew up on my mothers pork chops. Your recipe is magnificent! I'm passing it on to my son (a great cook) and he will love it.

      I have to say, your photos leave my mouth-watering. I almost want to go back to eating meat. Will do some sharing and thanks Peggy!

      Hi aviannovice,

      Pork is such a versatile meat in that it can be cooked in so many different ways. Glad you liked the sound of this recipe which I created out of things I happened to have on hand. It sounds as though you might be vegetarian now from your comment.

      When I ate meat, pork was my weakness. You sure created a winner here, especially with the apple, which truly enhances the remaining flavors. You've done will with this one, and one day I might have some folks over and try a sliver or two.

      I was really itching to click on your article below this one about an apple dessert. But I am trying to diet and I figured I might as well get a new recipe that I AM allowed to use so I begrudgingly clicked on the vegetable medley option. And now that I've read it I honestly forgot all about the apple something or another. It has made me hungry and wanting to try this out! I wish there was a "scratch and sniff" widget that could be added to recipe articles! It looks wonderful!

      Those are really good pork roasts from Costco. They would be perfect to cook in a slow cooker such as you did especially after first browning them. Thanks for your votes.

      Hi Peggy, I picked up a four pack of these pork roasts at Costco, too, and have cooked two of them in the crock pot, after browning them in a shallow pan first. I like the recipe you've shared here and it really sounds like a winner. The veggies really give it a nice touch. Voted up, useful and interesting.

      Hi Sheila,

      This is not the typical pork roast recipe. They can be simply roasted in an oven and are so good. My mother used to make slits in the meat & insert slivers of garlic, salt & pepper the outside of the roast & also sprinkle some caraway seeds over it. Yum! Thanks for the pin.

      It won't hurt, but you don't have to do that if you don't want. Lean, trimmed red meat is a good socrue of iron and protein. You don't want to overdo it, of course, but once a week won't hurt at all. Pork is a little harder to digest, but some cuts like pork chops can be trimmed and provide adequate protein.Lean chicken breast is a good option. Oily fish like sardines and salmon provide omega 3s, but are high in *(good) fat, so have to be measured carefully when added to diet plan. Be sure to supplement calcium and a multivitamin when you go on your diet to fill in any nutrients you accidentally cut out.Good luck with your challenge!

      Depending on how the meat was processed and where it came from there is a risk of geinttg a parasite called trichinosis. There are other bacteria, that grow in undercooked meat that you might also be exposing yourself too. It is always recommended to cook meat to proper temperatures before eating.

      Hi healthylife2,

      Just the silver skin is important to remove. It is tough and can cause the pork to curl and perhaps not cook evenly depending upon the thickness. Glad you liked this. Thanks for the vote + share.

      This recipe looks amazing and I can't wait to try it. I like anything with a lot of vegetables and layering them is a great idea. I was unaware that it was important to remove the skin on the pork. Voted up and shared!

      Sounds delicious. This pork, caraway seed and veggie bake would be a great "share-a-meal" for a get together. Thumbs up and shared.

      Victoria,

      I like to experiment with my cooking as you can probably tell. :))

      Wow, you are so creative! I have put an apple in a recipe before to give it a little sweeter flavor. It's a nice touch. I like caraway, too. Great with cabbage. Excellent hub with all the photos and explanations!

      Hi Aurelio,

      This meal turned out great. With another one of the Costco pork roasts, I just followed the instructions on roasting it whole but still had onions around it and seasoned it with salt, pepper and the caraway seeds as well as some garlic. Great combination with pork! Thanks for your comment and votes.

      I've never thought to put vegetables and pork in this way, and the caraway seed just adds something special. I love the pictures, as usual. Voting this Up and Useful.

      Hi missolive,

      So happy to hear that this gives you the incentive to add caraway seeds back into your spice cabinet. My mother loved them so much that she would sprinkle some on her cottage cheese and eat them that way. Appreciate your comment.

      What a wonderful sounding and looking recipe, I bet those gala apples add the perfect touch. You've given me a new reason to add caraway seed to my spice cabinet again. It is easy to get stuck with the same ol' seasonings but this combination sounds divine, thank you for sharing. Oh, and thanks for the great tips on how to prepare the pork before cooking.

      Hi Nell,

      Would be happy to but I'm afraid the plane flight is a bit expensive to do it for one meal. :)) Glad that you liked the sound of this recipe.

      Hi pstraubie48,

      If we lived closer I would have been happy to share this cooked meal with you. With just my husband and myself, we often end up freezing things to eat at another time. Thanks for your comment and the wishes of angels. :)

      This has to be good!! Simple straightforward flavors which bring out the goodness of the pork. And who does not love those amazing veggies. Thank you so much for sharing....I can almost smell this cooking and wished I could have a taste..

      Angels are on the way to you this morning, Peggy.

      Hi bingskee,

      I also love using caraway seeds in sauerkraut. Grate some apple into it and/or potato and use caraway seeds. Obviously the apple gives sauerkraut a little sweeter taste than the potato...but both are good. Hope you like caraway seed flavor as much as we do. Thanks for your comment.

      it is my first time to learn about caraway seeds.

      this is an interesting recipe. i would love to try doing it first and make some alterations in the future if needed.

      This sounds fabulous! I love the combination of pork, apples, veggies and caraway seeds. I had no idea that caraway seeds aid with digestion. I appreciate your reminders on why it's wise to remove silver skin, too. Thanks!
