This is a simple dish that's a hearty and filling family meal. The herbs give the roast pork flavor, and it tastes even better the next day.

How to Make It

Tuck the fresh herbs under the roast's strings or rub the dried herbs on the meat. Heat the oil in an ovenproof skillet over medium heat until it shimmers. Add the roast and brown on all sides, about 15 minutes. Heat oven to 375° F. Sprinkle the roast with salt and pepper. Place the skillet in the oven and cook 1 hour and 15 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer registers 155° F in the center of the roast. Remove from oven. Cover loosely with foil and let rest 15 minutes to allow the meat to finish cooking. Skim the fat from the pan juices and discard. Spoon the pan juices over the sliced meat.

Wow, this was awesome! I was not looking forward to dinner tonight, I thought, great another dry roast. NOPE! It was so tender and juicy and full of flavor! I basically followed the recipe, I used a cast iron skillet, which I think made the difference. I also added a BBQ rub in addition to the herbs. And, it was done about 30 minutes before the recipe said to check it so keep an eye on it!
