The pork that’s available today is leaner than ever before. While this is good news for our health, it also means that we have to alter the way that we cook the pork since leaner meat dries out more easily. Cooking pork roast has become trickier now that pork is leaner, but if you follow these tips, your pork roast is sure to turn out juicy and flavorful.
Choose the Right Cut
Cuts that are naturally tender are the best bet for making pork roast. Pork tenderloin, butt roast, blade loin roast, shoulder roast, crown roast, and sirloin roast are all good choices for pork roast.
Marinate and Baste the Meat
To make pork roast that’s tender, flavorful, and juicy, marinate the meat before roasting it and baste it while it’s in the oven to bathe it in its juices.
Tie the Meat
Tie the meat in order to make pork roast. Pork roast that has been tied will retain its shape and look more attractive when it comes out of the oven. Boneless roasts have to be rolled and tied in order to reshape it after the bone has been removed. It’s also recommended to tie standing rib roast to prevent the outside layer of meat from separating from the inner rib-eye muscle.
