Cooking a Perfect 2 lb Pork Roast

The cooking time for a 2 lb pork roast is just around an hour at 350°F to achieve tender and juicy results. However, note that if you start with a cold roast right out of the fridge, it may require approximately 90 minutes of cooking time. To shorten the cooking time, allow the meat to reach room temperature before placing it in the oven. Resting the meat on the counter will naturally increase its temperature by around 8-10 degrees. Be mindful not to overcook and dry it out.
