Garlicky Lemon and Parsley Pork

Garlicky Lemon-Parsley Pork

After the success of my garlicky lemon-parsley chicken, I thought it might be great idea to do the same with pork. So right. Such a tasty no-rush recipe for succulent pork. You’ll love the tangy taste of lemon on melt-in-your-mouth pork rind.
