A New Way To Cook Pork Roast

Sunday, October 5, 2008

I'd be hearing about a different way to cook pork roast for quite some time, but never took the time to try it. I'll never cook one another way again.

What's the trick? Searing the roast before you bake it. I'm telling ya...it makes for the moistest, juiciest pork roast I've ever had.

And it's so easy. Here are the steps:

Make a mix of the spices you want to crust the roast in. I used granulated garlic, fresh cracked pepper, hot salt, and Cajun seasoning. But any concoctions you can come up with would be just as good. Mix the spices together on a plate, and roll your roast in the spices until completely coated.

Get a pan nice and hot! I used my grandmothers cast iron skillet. Add a couple tablespoons of vegetable oil. Don't use olive oil, it smokes at too low a temperature. Give the oil a minute to get very hot.
Now sear your roast on all sides. Don't forget about the ends! It only takes about 1-2 minutes on each side.
Then just bake as you would normally. I had two roasts that were about 1-1/2 pounds each. I cooked them at 375 for an hour.

You could cut these babies with a fork!
I'm sure this would work with a beef roast just as well. I'll be trying that soon.
