A bizarre pork roast

Weather is cooling, so I thought I'd cook a pork roast. Only one availble at the local Lucky was a Hormel "flavored" pork roast, in a plastic package. The cut was not specified, so I should have been forewarned.

It was a very strange product, unlike anything I've ever eaten. Though it ws certainly "tender," like they said, it had a texture I would imagine to be like "tender" raw gnu. All but undetectable meat flavor; there was a hint of onion but that was about it.

Maybe there are some who love it, but I'm slowly feeding it to the little lions.
