Baked Pork Roast

Sunday’s always feel busy to me, I’m trying to get the house picked up for the week, getting my school work done for Monday, etc. When it comes to dinner I want something quick and easy, something like a roast. Its easy to prepare, and you can just toss it in the oven and forget about it. Pork roast is one of those things you can pick up fairly cheap, I normally spend $9-$11 for two of them.


Start by preheating the oven to 350 F. Place half a tablespoon salt and pepper, one teaspoon parsley and oregano, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and cumin, 1/4 teaspoon smoked hot paprika and turmeric.


Give the ingredients a good mix.



In the bottom of a roasting pan place about half an inch of water.


Drizzle a little bit of oil one side and rub it around being sure to cover all the surfaces. Place the roast oil side down on the roasting pan, and do the same to the other side.


Take the spices and rub it all over on one side again being sure to cover all the surface area.


Flip the roast over and do the same on the other side.


Cover with some foil.


Cook the roast for about 25 minutes pre pound and until the roast reaches an internal temperature of between 145- 160 degrees F. I hope you enjoy the delicious flavors of the spices that pair perfectly with the roast.
