I love stuffing garlic into any roast before cokoing. The mellow garlic flavor permeates throughout all the meat and makes for a great dinner. This time I did it with pork roast and served with Potato Pancakes.
8 servings (1 serving = 4 oz. meat)
242 calories per serving
2 lb. pork roast
4 garlic cloves
Salt and pepper to taste
½ t garlic powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Trim the roast of 95% of the fat. Make slits in both sides of the meat and stuff in little slices of garlic. Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Place ½ cup water in the bottom of a baking pan and then place the roast in a rack on the pan. Cover loosely with foil and cook ½ hour. Raise the oven temperature to 375 degrees and continue cooking 1 – 1.5 more hours or until done in the center. Let rest 10 minutes before slicing.
