“Savory pork roast, first seared in roasted shallots and garlic, then roasted with veggies until it falls apart. Finish it off by serving it with some cracked pepper gravy. For additional flavor, add sauteed portobello or cremini mushrooms and sauteed chopped scallions.”

Original recipe yields 1 roast

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a mortar, smash together 1/4 cup of garlic powder, 1/4 cup of onion powder, the crushed red pepper flakes, and 1 tablespoon of cracked black pepper until the mixture forms a fine powder. Place the spice mix into a large shallow bowl.
  2. Inject the pork roast all over with the Creole marinade; blot moisture from the outside of the roast. Rub the spice mix all over the pork roast to thoroughly coat. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat, then cook and stir the shallots and elephant garlic until the garlic becomes lightly golden brown. Sear the coated pork roast in the hot butter on all sides until the spice coating is golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Place the roast into a roasting pan or Dutch oven with the fat side up; scrape up the butter, cooked shallots and garlic, and sprinkle around the roast. Arrange the sweet onions, red potatoes, carrots, and celery pieces around the roast. Mix 1 cup of water with the remaining spice rub, and pour evenly over roast.
  3. Cover the roasting pan with a lid, and cook in the preheated oven until the meat is very tender, 3 3/4 to 4 hours.
  4. Remove the roast and set aside on a serving platter; surround the meat with the cooked vegetables. Whisk 1 tablespoon of cracked black pepper, 2 tablespoons of garlic powder, 1 tablespoon of onion powder, and the brown gravy mix together with 2 cups of water in a bowl, and whisk the mixture into the liquid left in the roasting pan. Place the pan over medium heat, and cook, whisking constantly, until the gravy has come to a boil and has thickened, about 5 minutes. Serve alongside the roast and vegetables.

Excellent recipe, but if your serving a group that do not prefer spicy dishes, ya might think about leaving out the red pepper flakes!!!

I can't say this very often about my cooking but it was Amazing! Even my boyfriend loved it and he's a little leary of my cooking:) I will definately make it again. I didn't have any marinade so I melted butter and mixed it with a garlic and herb spice mix that I had already. Then I poured some into the holes that I stabbed into the meat. Also, when there's only about a 30 or 40 minutes of cooking time left (w/ a 1.5 lb roast)I start to slice the meat almost all the way through as if I were serving it. It was sitting in 1.5 inches of liquid, including the veggies so I spooned some of that on top after I sliced it. I think slicing the meat helped it cook a littler faster because pork always seems to take forever to cook for some reason.Easy and hopefully healthy but not sure how healthy my home made marinade was. I didn't even use the suggested gravy either, it was already moist and tasty enough.

A couple precautions .... (1) make sure the pan in which you cook the shallots will hold the roast :) and (2) while I consider myself a more than competent cook, this took considerably more than 30 of prep time. Other than that, my cajun family loved it.
