Roasted Rack of Pork

Cooking pork has never been easier, and gone are the days of overcooking to ensure it’s safe to eat. Now, you can cook your pork a little less, allowing it to be pink, juicy, and bursting with flavor. However, if you prefer your roast well-done, my recipe guarantees it will still be incredibly tasty.

A Simple List of Ingredients

Aside from the pork rib roast itself, the ingredient list is delightfully short. Here’s what you’ll need for the roasted rack of pork: vegetables for the bottom of the pan, and my personal favorite seasoning for meats, Montreal Beef Seasoning. To enhance the flavors of the roast, I like to use stone ground mustard, but you can also use Dijon mustard or olive oil as alternatives.

Seasoning the Pork Rib Roast

  1. Coat the top of the roast with Dijon or Stone Ground Mustard, ensuring an even distribution.
  2. Finish by generously sprinkling Montreal Beef Seasoning over the mustard-coated roast.

Final Step in Preparing the Recipe

To enhance the flavors even further, place rough-cut onion, celery, and carrots in the bottom of your roasting pan. These vegetables not only add depth to the pan drippings but also elevate the taste of the final dish.

Cooking Your Pork Rib Roast to Perfection

Cooking a pork rib roast is all about following a few simple rules:

  • Let the roast come to room temperature for about 30 minutes before cooking.
  • Start by roasting at a high temperature of 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes (or 30 minutes for larger roasts).
  • Reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and cook for approximately 15 minutes per pound until the desired level of doneness is achieved.
  • Make sure to cook the meat uncovered in your roasting pan.
  • Always roast with the fat side up.
  • To determine the exact level of doneness, use a meat thermometer. Remember that the roast will continue to increase in temperature by about 10 degrees after removing it from the oven. For medium rare, aim for 145 degrees F, and for well-done, aim for 160 degrees F.

Uncover the Secrets to a Juicy Roast

You might be wondering whether to cover your roast while cooking. The answer is a resounding no. The coating of seasonings on your roast will help retain its moisture throughout the cooking process. However, if you prefer to have a covered roast, you can do so for the first 45 minutes and then uncover it for the remainder of the cooking time.

As a side dish, garlic mashed potatoes perfectly complement the flavors of the pork rib roast. To achieve a subtle garlic taste that doesn’t overpower the dish, roast the garlic before incorporating it into the mashed potatoes. Additionally, a flavorful gravy will take this meal to the next level of deliciousness.
