Roast Pork With Rosemary

By now you may be tired of Thanksgiving turkey. Change it up with a nice and simple pork roast. You can add sweet potatoes to the dish if you want. Roast Pork makes great sandwiches as well.


4 Pound Bone-In Center Cut Pork Loin Roast

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

2 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Rosemary

3 Sprigs of Rosemary

12 Ounce Bottle of Hard Cider or Non-Alcoholic Apple Cider

6 Sweet Potatoes (optional)

Rub the pork with the olive oil. Mix the rosemary with the salt and pepper. Rub over the pork. Preheat the oven to 450° F. Put the pork bone side down, in a large roasting pan. Place the additional rosemary sprigs on top of the pork. Roast for 15 minutes and then reduce the heat to 350° F. Roast for 15 minutes. Add 6 medium, peeled & cut, sweet potatoes to the pan. Stir the potatoes gently to coat with the juices over the pork roast. Put back in the oven for 75 minutes. Remove from the oven and transfer the pork to a serving platter or carving board. Put the potatoes in an oven proof bowl covered with foil. Turn off the oven and keep the potatoes warm while letting the pork stand for 15 minutes. Take the roasting pan and heat it on the burner over a medium heat. Add the cider and bring to a boil. Scrape the brown bits in the pan with a wooden spoon. You don’t want to scratch the pan with a metal utensil. Boil the cider for 5 minutes until it is reduced to ¾ of a cup. Turn off the heat and transfer to a gravy boat. Carve the pork and transfer to a serving platter. Place the sweet potatoes around the pork. Drizzle with the cider sauce. Serve with the remaining cider sauce on the side. Serves 12
