A pork roast hot from the oven seems like a dinner for company, but if the roast is a boneless pork loin recipe with Italian seasoning, it’s easy enough to make any day of the week special.
By adding some vegetables to the roasting pan, almost the whole meal can be ready at once. And it’s such an easy gluten-free dinner!
This week I used a pork roast that had been tied by the butcher, as you see in the pictures. It is just two smaller pieces of boneless pork loin tied together to make one thicker roast.
After roasting the strings are easily cut so they can be removed before slicing. It doesn’t have to be a tied roast, though — often I use a single piece of pork loin for this recipe.
There are many easy ways to cook a pork roast.
One of the most basic is also quite easy… and a perennial favorite of mine… a pot roast!
It takes just a few minutes to get it started, then it cooks on its own for a couple of hours.
I think that a pot roast must be one of the original one-pot meals… Paleo in the extreme!
My husband Al, who doesn’t like anything barbecue… And, don’t get me started about Al and hot spices… He surprised the “bejeebers” out of me. I’ll tell you more about Al in a moment. But first…
… First, let me explain that I was going to be out of the house all day and I needed something that I could make that was yummy as well as really easy. Pulled barbecued pork seemed like just the thing because I could dump it in my crock pot and leave it to cook slowly all day while I was away “taking care of business.”
I had some pork loin roast in the ‘fridge that was just begging to be used. So, before I left the house yesterday, I grabbed the roast, put it in the crock pot, bones and all, added enough water so it wouldn’t boil away in the next 10 or so hours and the necessary barbecue “stuff.”
Now, back to Al…
