This is the best pork loin roast I have ever tasted!!! (Not to be confused with the small round pork tenderloins) this is by far the B~E~S~T!!! Do not change a thing...The veggies came out delish...It is an ultimate KEEPER!!! I don't give reviews like this lightly....Even my pickey Pickey PICKEY husband loved it!!! Ummmm the gravy!!! Don't pre brown the roast...It really does brown itself...Very easy prep....Quick, Yummy & Easy!!!
I have tried at least 100 different recipes for pork roasts over the years, they all seemed to lack something, flavor, too dried out, etc. This one is so flavorful, moist, and just down right melt in your mouth good. Takes no time whatsoever to put together and throw in the oven and the results make you look like a rock star! The veggies come out perfect and the broth is just out of this world good. Who would have thought this could be accomplished in a Dutch oven? And who doesn't love a one pot delicious meal. All those "other" pork roast recipes......they no longer exist here in our house anymore. Just can't beat perfection.
I saw this recipe and decided to try it. Our bottle of Italian spice was pretty old so I used 1 tbsp of the Italian spice and 1/4 tsp each of rosemary, thyme, oregano, and sage. Everything else was exactly per the recipe. The roast was about 2.4 lbs. I decided to check it after 1 h 45 min and it was already done, maybe because we have a convection oven? The meat temp was 195 and I was afraid I had ruined it, but I hadn't. It was moist, could be cut with a fork, and incredibly flavorful. So were the veggies. Definitely a keeper, and soooo easy! My husband loved it.
I tried this recipe but with a smaller roast, and I don't own a roasting pan, so I used a baking pan with foil over it. I only cooked it for about 1hr 35 min because it was only about 1 1/2-2 lb roast. Veggies were just perfect; wouldn't have wanted them any more done. The roast wasn't quite as tender as others seem to report it should be, but that could be because either I didn't cook it long enough, or I was using a foil lid. Still, it was excellent! Great flavour, meat wasn't tough. Gravy was very tasty. Will definitely make again.
I only had a 1 3/4 lb roast so I cooked this for just under 2 hours. The pork itself could have gone a little longer, it was still a little tough. The vegetables themselves were a little overdone for my taste. I sprinkled some Mrs. Dash and garlic powder on the potatoes and carrots to give them a little more flavor. I didn't make the gravy as I didn't want the extra calories. I will make this again using the proper size roast, but will cook the roast for about 20 - 30 minutes before adding the vegetables.
Pork loin (NOT tenderloin) has been on sale a lot this year, and I had never tried this cut. I saw this recipe and chose it over others because it is super easy and I am super lazy! So glad I did! I have made it 5 or 6 times already and am much impressed every time. If you choose to make the gravy, it is wonderful as well. The tender meat can be shredded and used in bbq sandwiches or mexican dishes, but it is delicious as a sliced roast--be sure to let it rest a while to get nice slices. Thanks for this one!
made this last night! i won't make it any other way again. instead of carrots, i did corn on the cob. fantastic!!
Moist & juicy my family loved it!! Super easy to make. It tastes delicious. I'm definitely going to make this for our Sunday dinners & holidays!!
The fist Direction makes no sense. Surely the cuts should be VERTICAL. Also what does 3x3" mean in this context? I think I'll use another recipe!
My pork loin roast is 5 pounds. Is the cooking time doubled to 5 hours?
