Pork Sirloin Roast

The Tradition Lives On

The love for this dish has been passed down through generations. Even my kids can’t get enough of it. But here’s the thing about pork – many people tend to overcook it, fearing that it won’t be done. This often leads to a dry and tough piece of meat. But fear not, my recipe is foolproof!

A Tribute to Kevin Weeks

I originally stumbled upon this incredible recipe on Kevin Weeks’ blog, Seriously Good. Unfortunately, the blog is no longer active, and we have lost Kevin. However, his legacy lives on through his recipes. This particular sirloin pork roast recipe has been a game-changer for me, and I’m grateful to Kevin for sharing it with the world.

Choosing the Right Cut

Now, let’s talk about the type of pork roast you should use. It’s important to get this right to achieve the perfect result. I’ve provided a handy photo guide below to eliminate any confusion:

Type of Pork Roast

You can opt for either a boneless pork sirloin tip roast or a boneless pork sirloin roast. Personally, I prefer the boneless pork sirloin tip roast as it tends to be larger. However, a boneless center-cut pork loin works just as well. Just remember, the cooking time may vary depending on the size of the roast.

The Recipe – Step by Step

Now that we have all the details sorted, let’s dive into the recipe itself. Here’s everything you’ll need:

Ingredients:

  • 3 lb boneless pork sirloin tip roast, boneless pork loin roast, or boneless center-cut pork loin
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons dried rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme leaves
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup beef broth

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 225°F.
  2. Rub the pork with one teaspoon of minced garlic. In a small bowl, combine the rosemary and thyme, crumbling them together with your fingers. Sprinkle the herb mixture onto all sides of the pork, ensuring it’s well-coated. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper, gently patting the seasoning into the meat.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a 9″-10″ cast iron skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Brown the roast on all sides until a beautiful crust forms. Transfer the roast to a plate and set it aside.
  4. To the same skillet or Dutch oven, add the diced onion, carrot, and celery. Sauté them until they begin to brown. Add the remaining minced garlic and cook for an additional minute. Deglaze the pan with beef broth, scraping up any delicious bits that have stuck to the bottom.
  5. Place the roast on top of the vegetable and broth mixture. Insert an oven-safe instant-read thermometer into the thickest part of the meat, making sure it’s not touching the bone or the pan.
  6. Cook the roast until the internal temperature reaches 145°F, which should take about 2 hours. Remove the roast from the oven and tent it with foil. Let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving with the flavorful pan juices.
