This recipe has been in the family for years; nothing complicated about it. It is very easy, and the no-fail method makes it a winner to serve unexpected guests. Family approved over and over again. The gravy that you make from the drippings has an awesome flavor, especially over mashed potatoes. Carving with an electric knife makes serving a cinch.


3 1/2-4 lb
pork loin roast
1/4 c
olive oil
1 Tbsp
granulated garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp
kosher salt
1 tsp
black pepper
2 tsp
2 tsp
onion powder
2 tsp
dried parsley flakes
1 tsp
thyme leaves
1/3 c
all purpose flour

Directions Step-By-Step

PREHEAT OVEN TO 450 DEGREES F. Rub olive oil liberally over entire roast.
Combine all herbs and spices in a small bowl, and mix together , then spread seasoning over entire roast. Dredge roast in flour to coat all sides. Then place roast on a rack in roasting pan.
Place roast in oven & roast for 10 minutes. This sears and browns roast on outside, and locks in juices. LOWER HEAT AFTER 10 MINUTES TO 250 degrees F. Continue cooking for an additional hour and a half or so, or until temperature reaches 145 to 150 degrees F. then remove from oven tent loosely with foil , and temperature of roast will continue to rise about 10 degrees.
Allow Roast to rest 5 or 10 minutes to redistribute juices, before carving. I use an electric knife it makes the task much easier. NOTE: You can make a nice pan gravy from the pan drippings if desired. Don't forget the applesauce.
The finished product is amazing and taste great. Your guest will be very pleased at all of your efforts to serve such a wonderful meal.

John please keep me posted should you decide to make the recipe, however I have a couple of other ones, the ingredients are slightly different, but the results are just as good, one is called Standing Rib Roast w/Garlic Horseradish Crust it is excellent and the first time I had ever made a standing Rib Roast I used a recipe by Tyler Florence Roast Prime Rib of Beef w/ Horseradish Crust I also served Yorkshire Pudding with the roast most of the times Rose Mary's Yorkshire pudding , but this year I am trying something a bit different, I am making Homemade Dinner Rolls but I plan to add whole wheat flour to make a combo dinner Roll, it will be made from my basic dinner Roll recipe for Easy Mixing Bowl Dinner Rolls Hope you have a wonderful Easter, and you enjoy your Fellowship with family and friends.

No John I have not tried this recipe for a Prime Rib Roast, but I have used it with a Bone In Center Cut Pork Roast and it was fabulous. We loved it, I have even studded the roast with garlic cloves and made a glaze for it, or wrapped the entire roast in sliced bacon, and they all worked well. I do however have several Prime Roast Recipes that I often use, and they are always very tasty and flavorful, one of which I plan to make this Easter for Dan's Outdoor Grilled Prime Rib Roast Thanks for your comment.
