Easy Pork Roast


I love the smell of roast pork as it slow cooks in my oven on a cold snowy day. I want to show you just how easy it is to get a perfect roast every time. 
Easy Pork Roast

 1 (6-8 lb). boneless rolled Pork Loin or Sirloin pork Roast
1-2 cups of apple cider or chicken stock

Dry Rub

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup paprika
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup garlic powder
2 tablespoons mild chili powder
2 tablespoons course salt
2 tablespoons black pepper
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons celery seeds
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dried thyme
3 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons dry mustard
2 teaspoons ground coriander
2 teaspoons ground allspice

Mix all dry seasonings and ingredients together until blended. Lay roast on plastic wrap and coat with olive oil. You may also pour olive oil in spices and blend for a wet rub. Generously rub entire roast with spices. Wrap in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

Remove roast from refrigerator and set oven to 450 degrees. Place the roast on a rack inside a roasting pan with the fat pad on the top side up so you have a natural basting throughout the cooking process.

Roast on center rack of oven for about 15 minutes to sear the meat and activate the flavors of the spices. Carefully remove hot roasting pan from oven and pour chicken broth or apple juice under rack, making sure meat is not sitting in liquid. Cover entire roasting pan and rack with heavy foil to keep in steam. Reduce temperature down to only 250 degrees and bake for 60-90 minutes or until you reach a temperature of 145 degrees in the center of the roast.

Remove roasting pan from oven and carefully remove foil so that steam escapes. Carefully use tongs to lift the roast to a platter. Do not puncture with a fork. Tent loosely with foil and allow to rest for about 10 minutes before carving. Remove foil, slice, and serve.
