The other day I didn’t feel like cooking dinner (not an unusual state of circumstances at our house), so I popped a pork roast with potoates in the oven and a little more than an hour later, a delicious dinner was ready that took nearly no effort on my part. Exactly my kind of meal!
2-3 pound Pork Roast
Depending on how many you are feeding, you may want a bigger or smaller roast. This recipe would serve 4.
As for the type of Pork Roast you purchase, you can use a variety of different cuts. I had a boneless rib-eye roast for this recipe.
I used my wonderful clay baker to make my roast because it steams the meat and makes it so juicy and tender. I posted a while back about clay bakers. If you don’t have one, you can also cook a roast in a regular roasting pan or even in a baking pan loosely tented with foil.
I would normally add carrots to the potatoes (use reds and leave on the skin if you so desire. I desired.). You can also throw in celery, onions, garlic, whatever tickles your fancy.
Bake for about an hour at 350 degrees or until a meat thermometer reaches the appropriate temp.
Remove from oven, let rest with the lid on for 5-10 minutes then slice and enjoy!
