This is one of many ways I like a pork roast. You are not limited to the veggies I've included, in fact apples and onions are very tasty with a pork roast in place of potatoes and carrots. And maybe a little sage.

Nothing better than a one pot meal!


Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients

2 1/2 to 3 lb
pork loin roasts
1 tsp
turkish seasoning
1 tsp
paprika
1 tsp
chili powder
1/2 tsp
oregano, dried
1/2 tsp
garlic powder
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
pepper
2 to 3 slice
hickory smoked bacon (i used thick) cut in half
6 to 8 small
red potatoes, halved and/or quartered depending on size
3 to 4
carrots, cut in nice size slices
2 large
celery ribs, cut in nice size slices
1 large
onion, cut up in nice chunks
1/4 c
water
additional salt and pepper for veggies

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2Combine seasoning and rub over pork roast.
3Place roast fat side up in dutch oven, place strips of bacon on top.
4Cut and slice vegetables. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and place vegetables around roast and on top. Add water and cover with lid.
5Bake covered for 1 hour, remove lid and continue bakiing an additional 30 minutes or until pork registers 160 degrees. NOTE: You may want to check for doneness after 1 hour. You don't want to over cook and you don't want to under cook pork.
6Once I removed the roast from the oven, I allowed it to sit for 10 minutes before slicing. I spooned a little of the roast drippings on top of the sliced roast...Mmmm good! Hope you enjoy!
