Recipe by IronChefNicole
This is one of, if not the most delicious recipes Ive ever made. The flavor is so rich and incredible. It is not dry, although the cooking time may lead you to think differently. You can cut it with a fork, it is just so moist and tender.

This is one of the best pork roast that I have made in a very long time. The spice combination Was just perfect. The meat was so moist and tender you could truly cut with a fork. The veggies were a beautiful addition to the dish. I did decrease the cooking time as my roast was only 3.5 pounds. I cooked for 1 1/2 hours then broiled as directed except only about 5 minutes per side and it turned out perfect. You just have to watch it as directed so it doesn't get too brown. I also used the full 14 1/2 oz can of beef broth as I didn't want to waste any and it seemed to work fine. This is a recipe that I will make again and share with others. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for My 3 Chefs event 2013.
- 4 -5 lbs boneless pork loin
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- 1 tablespoon parsley
- 1 tablespoon rosemary (fresh or dried)
- 1 tablespoon seasoning salt
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 10 fresh garlic cloves, Chopped
- 5 -6 yukon gold potatoes, quartered
- 8 -16 ounces baby carrots
- 1 large Spanish onion, quartered
- 1 (8 ounce) can beef broth (MUST BE BEEF!)
Directions See How It's Made
- 1. Place Pork Loin fat side down in a 9 x 13 pan and arrange vegetables around it.
- 2. In a small bowl mix Garlic powder, onion powder, seasoned salt and black pepper until combined and rub it onto the pork (top only, not the bottom).
- 3. Sprinkle the parsley on top, and then the garlic. Drizzle the olive oil over top of the pork. You can season the vegetables as well, I recommend to. Just sprinkle all of the same dry seasonings over top.
- 4. Add beef broth from one of the corners of the pan, do not pour over pork. Place foil, slightly vented, over the pork, and fitting the pan. Cook it on 325 for 2 1/2 hours. Midway through rotate the pork so it it fat side up and replace the foil so it is covered again.
- 5. After its done take the foil off and put the broiler on HIGH. Flip the pork again to meat side up and broil for 10 minutes. You will do this twice (meat side up, 10 mins, fat side up 10 mins, and then meat side up one last time for 10 mins.) For a total of 30 minutes You may need a few mins longer depending on your oven. Just look to see how browned its getting.
- 6. Let meat rest for 30 minutes.
- 7. Enjoy! The vegetables with have an incredible flavor and so will the meat.
- **You may add more veggies but You'll probably have to go with a bigger pan size.
- **If you'd really like to kick it up, make a roux and add PAN JUICES and some red wine and let it reduce, stirring often to make a nice gravy!
