Yummy Pork Roast

Nothing says all-American dinner like a homemade pork roast with mashed potatoes and gravy. Yum! Even though pork roast may seem like the ideal Sunday family dinner, but cooking a pork roast can, understandably, be intimidating. Food today comes fast: ready made frozen dinners, meals prepared for you in restaurants, dinners can be found in drive-through windows. With a pork roast that isn't too hard to find already prepared—whether that be in a five-star restaurant or a grocery store frozen dinner—you may have absolutely no idea how to actually make a pork roast.

Making a pork roast is not nearly as intimidating as it may seem: it's easy enough that college students can cook one! The first step is to go to the grocery store and get a pork tenderloin. If you're unsure of what is a good cut of meat, talk to the butcher at the store. Much of picking good meat cuts comes from experience. (You also want to make sure that your cut of meat is boneless.) If you buy your pork roast a significant amount of time before you actually plan on cooking it, put it in your freezer. When you're ready to cook it, take it out to thaw (if you've frozen the meat), and rub it with salt. And when I say rub with salt, I say really rub it with salt. Rub salt in all the crevasses and really coat it.

You could spice things up a bit by laying fresh rosemary, thyme, or sage on the pork. Add a bit of flavor with these herbs to make the dish yours. The next part comes in the roasting. Roast the pork loin uncovered in a preheated 500 degree oven. Once you put the pork in the oven, decrease the temperature immediately to 350 degrees. For a pork loin, the meat with be done when the internal temperature is between 165 and 170 degree; for a tenderloin, the internal temperature should be 140 degrees (or should be cooked between 45 and 60 minutes on a grill). And that's another idea: you can grill your pork as well! Feel free to experiment!

Pork tenderloin tastes best with mashed potatoes and gravy—yum! You now have all the instructions to make the perfect family dinner. Use these amazing tips to make your own all-American dinner!
