Roast Pork with Garlic and Rosemary

Total Time

Cook 1 hr 30 mins

A flavorful, simple way to prepare a pork roast. The flavors should go very well with beef, as well, but I haven't tried it yet.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Mix the cayenne, garlic, sugar, salt, and pepper and press into the roast.
  3. Place the roast on a rack in a roasting pan.
  4. Roast at 450 for 15 minutes.
  5. Pour 1/2 cup of wine over the roast, lower the temperature to 325, and continue to roast.
  6. Add about 1/4 cup of liquid every 15 minutes or so.
  7. If there is liquid in the pan, use that to baste before adding more.
  8. Roast until the internal temperature is 145-150 degrees (probably about 1 1/2 hours).
  9. Remove to a platter, baste with the remaining drippings, and let stand 10 minutes before carving.
  10. If you want more garlic flavor, push several cloves (sliced in quarters) into cuts in the roast.

Russell and I cooked this tonight for dinner. The rosemary went so well with the pork, I wondered why I haven't tried that combination before! The temperature and the timing seemed a little off. We had to up the temp to 390f to get the meat and roast veg cooked in time.
