“Juicy, tender pork covered in a pan gravy that is packed with flavor. Great to serve to guests! My mother-in-law who can't cook demanded I teach her how to make this! Substitute chicken stock for pork stock in the gravy, if you wish.” - by LilSnoo
Original recipe yields 1 pork loin roast
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
- Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat, and stir in the black pepper, cayenne pepper, thyme, oregano, dry mustard powder, and garlic. Cook and stir until the garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove from heat.
- With a sharp knife, make several small slits in the pork roast. Place the roast into a roasting pan, and spread the spice mixture all over the roast and in the incisions. Surround the roast with celery, carrots, and onion, and season to taste with salt and black pepper.
- Roast in the preheated oven until the pork roast is browned and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the center of the roast reads at least 150 degrees F (65 degrees C), about 2 hours. About 15 minutes before the end of cooking, turn the oven temperature up to 425 to help brown the roast.
- Remove pork roast from oven, and allow to stand for about 10 minutes before slicing. Check temperature again; roast temperature should be at least 160 degrees F (75 degrees C) before serving.
- While roast is resting, place the roasting pan containing vegetables and pan drippings over a stove burner set to medium heat. Whisk in the flour, and simmer the drippings and flour for about 3 minutes to remove raw taste from flour. Whisk in the pork stock, a little at a time, until the gravy is thickened. Strain the gravy, and serve with the roast.

"Wonderful seasonings! It could be too spicy for some - know your audience - for us this was perfect. I took the roast out of the refrigerator for about an hour to warm up. I used olive oil instead ..." See moreof butter to cook the spices and I ended up using more course ground pepper - what can I say, we love pepper. I cooked the roast at 300 until it reached 125 degrees and then turned the oven up to 425 and cooked to 145. Took out and rested while I did the gravy. I did do the gravy a bit different. I used 2 T butter and 2 T flour - made a roux in a seperate pan. I removed the cooked vegetables and strained the juices from the baking pan - I used the drippings plus 1 cup pork stock to make the gravy. Very good!"
"I only omitted one ingredient and that was the cayenne pepper. Very flavorful pork loin recipe, though next time I make this, I'd double the spices. The gravy was one of the best we'd ever had...." See more"
