Most people like simple and easy recipes. The problem is, simple and easy doesn’t always mean you will be sitting down to a dinner that literally makes you happy as you relax later with your full belly. I LOVE meals that taste like they could have been served at a restaurant. This particular recipe ended up being a product of luck. My husband works random hours, and I used to stay caught up with his schedule pretty well until the kids started school and I started PTO. Now I find myself going “oh, you will be home for dinner tonight?” more often than I would like. So one day, I literally opened my fridge and sat there wondering what to throw together. The carrots only had about a week left, so they needed to be included. The honey mustard dressing I bought for salads was a bit too strong for greens and I hadn’t used much of it at all, so why not throw that in as a marinade for the pork roast that I already had defrosted. I was planning on making a honey mustard marinade anyway. There was exactly one dinner’s worth of couscous left, and my son had been begging for asparagus. And that is how I came across this dinner that is now one of my favorites!
Use the dressing/marinade as a sauce for the couscous and asparagus.
