I love pork roast, especially in the winter. Even though I always love it when my grandmother or mother makes it, I felt too intimidated to try it myself for a long time. Finally, I gave it a try.
This is my second pork roast, a small 1.5 pounder – a good size for two people (with leftovers).
Preheat oven to 325°F.
Sprinkle a small amount of salt and a moderate amount of pepper over all sides of the roast.
Use equal parts olive oil and minced garlic mixed together to baste the roast on all sides. (About 2.5-3 tablespoons is enough for my 1.5 pound roast.)
Wrap the roast in foil, and set fat-side-up in a baking dish.
Bake depending on size of roast – 30 minutes for each pound.
Best served with yellow rice and black beans and a vegetable of your choice!
For additional flavor, add thyme and bay leaves before baking.
