Buttermilk Marinated Pork Roast with Rhubarb Chutney

Another recipe we made in Toronto was buttermilk marinated pork roast. I think my mom bought a pork shoulder which really absorbed the flavour of the marinade well and was really tenderized by the buttermilk. When I made this again for A, the roast I bought was basically pork chops, so the meat didn't absorb the marinade as well and thus was a bit tougher and less flavourful.

I think the rhubarb chutney is a great compliment to pork - it is a bit tart brings out the flavour of the pork. I also like how the chutney is pink and makes the plate really colourful.
