Dutch's EASY-EASY Porketta

A chance comment on a Pot Roast recipe by "Deneece" about how it made her think of her favorite meat, reminded me of my youth. Gran used to buy a pre-spiced, ready to roast Italian Porketta from the Italian Deli across the street. It was a traditional holiday roast. I looked around and found one I thought I could manage and that recipe is what follows. It was easy and close to what I remember.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
My mouth was watering all day smelling the aroma of all the different herbs and spices as this dish cooked in the crock pot. I couldn't wait to taste my first bite... and I wasn't disappointed! It is so tender and juicy. Give Dutch's Porketta a try for your next dinner!

Ingredients

1 Tbsp
dill weed (i used 2tsp fresh rosemary)
1 1/2 tsp
fennel seed (i cut this to 1tsp)
1 tsp
dried oregano
1 tsp
lemon pepper
1/4 tsp
onion powder
1/4 tsp
garlic powder
1 tsp
sweet paprika (i upped this to 2tsp)
3-4 lb
boneless pork roast or pork shoulder
1
onion, sliced
1-2 c
broth (i used chicken)
kosher salt
1-2 Tbsp
olive oil

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Start by rubbing the roast w/ Kosher Salt, then mix all the spices and if possible run through a coffee grinder.
2
Add enough Olive Oil to the ground spices to make a thin paste and thoroughly coat the roast, rubbing it in. Put the roast into a Ziploc bag and into your reefer for at least 12hrs, 24 is better.
3
Thick slices of onion in the bottom of your slow cooker, then lay the roast atop and pour the broth down the side. On low for 6hrs, then take out, let it rest 15min., slice and return to juices.
4
I made gravy w/ the de-fatted juices and served with Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Asparagus.
5
This recipe was also recommended to be used with Turkey Breast and that's my next project. It was juicy, redolent of the spices, but not overpowered.
