Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325°.
  • Heat a nonstick skillet on medium high, and add the pork to the skillet.
  • Generously season with the salt and pepper, and sear all sides.
  • Mix all the remaining ingredients in a baking dish and make a well for the seared pork roast.
  • Once the pork is seared on all sides, transfer it to the baking dish, placing it in the center of the dish with the vegetable mixture around.
  • Place the dish in the oven and bake.
  • Roast until the internal temperature of the meat reaches 150°-155°. Depending on your oven, this can be about 1 to 1½ hours.
  • Once the optimal internal temperature is reached, remove the roast from oven and let it rest for about 10 minutes. The internal temperature will continue to rise about 5° once outside the oven.
  • Slice and serve with the roasted vegetables.
