An Easy & Impressive Family Dinner


I love to cook. I get excited about mixing different ingredients together to create a mouth-watering meal. I’m not the best chef though, so I’m always on the lookout for recipes that are easy to make but look as if I spent hours slaving in the kitchen. I definitely achieved that with this recipe from President’s Choice. I altered it slightly to suit our taste. 

The ingredients are likely in your pantry or fridge and the prep time is next to nothing. Throw it all in a roasting pan, place it in the oven and you’re done! 


This recipe was adapted from the President’s Choice Rack of Lamb with 4 Peppercorn Sauce recipe. 



  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • ½ cup PC Memories of Lyon 4 Peppercorn Sauce
  • ½ cup Whipping Cream
  • ½ cup Fresh Parsley
  • 1 cup of fresh bread crumbs (2 slices of bread)
  • 1 Pork loin
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Potatoes
  • Carrots

TIP:  To make breadcrumbs, hold the bread against your work surface and use tines of  a fork to tear into crumbs. 

Making Fresh Breadcrumbs Memories of Lyon 4 Peppercorn Sauce


  1. Preheat oven the temperature as suggested on the pork loin package
  2. Rub pork with 1/2 tbsp of the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a bowl, combine remaining olive oil, breadcrumbs and parsley; firmly press mixture on the up facing part of the pork loin.
  3. Place pork in a roasting pan and add the potatoes and carrots. Drizzle vegetables with a little olive oil and season to taste.
  4. Roast in centre of oven for 35 minutes (or according to package instructions)
  5. In small saucepan, combine Memories sauce and whipping cream. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low to keep warm.
  6. Remove roast from oven and remove the lid of the roasting pan. Place back in oven for 5 minutes to brown the crust.
  7. Serve and drizzle with peppercorn gravy
