The first thing to do in cooking pork roast is to prepare its spice rub.
Put 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a small dish. If you do not have olive oil, vegetable oil is a good alternative.
Put 1 tablespoon of dried spices. The spices can include oregano, sage, rosemary or thyme. They can be used individually or mixed, as long as all in all, they amount to only 1 tablespoonful.
Add ¼ teaspoon of ground black pepper and ½ teaspoon of salt to the mixture.
Mix these ingredients for 1 minute. Then, rub the mixture onto the pork. Be sure that all parts of the pork are coated with the rub.
Place your pork on the rack. Make sure that the side with pork fat is facing up. If you do not have a rack, one made from coiled sheets of tin foil will do.
Next, preheat your oven to 450 degrees and place the pork in it. The rack should be at the center of your oven. Let the pork cook for about 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, lower the temperature to 250 degrees.
Let the pork cook for another 50 to 80 minutes. The cooking time depends on the pork roast’s shape and size. Use a meat thermometer to determine if the pork has reached 150 degrees. This means that the pork is ready.
Carefully take the roast out of the oven and cover it with foil. After 15 minutes, you can slice and serve the pork roast.
