South Shore Pork Roast

Rated as 4.68 out of 5 Stars

"In Storm Lake, Iowa, Pat Botine surrounds this moist pork roast with a pretty combination of carrots and onion. It feeds a family of four with plenty left over for dishes later in the week. And since the creamy gravy is served at the table, the leftover pork is easy to use."

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown roast in butter for 5 minutes on each side. Transfer to a roasting pan. In the same skillet, saute onion and carrots until crisp-tender. Place around roast. Sprinkle with paprika. Add broth to pan. Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 1-1/2 hours. Uncover; bake 50 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 145 degrees (63 degrees C). Remove roast and vegetables to a serving platter; keep warm. Pour pan drippings to a measuring cup; skim fat. Add water to measure 2-2/3 cups. In a saucepan, combine flour and sour cream until smooth. Add drippings, parsley and salt. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with the roast.

This was excellent! We used a small, 2 lb. pork ribeye roast and it was done after the initial hour and a half.

This was excellent! I put it in the crock pot instead. We really enjoyed it!

This was great. My family loved it. Iwill definately make it again. The only thing I did different was add cut up potato to the carrots and onions. Sophia in NH

My guests enjoyed this very much. I used a 4.3 lb bone-in loin roast, which got to temp. about 1/2 hour faster than expected, but was still juicy. The carrots and onions were very flavorful. ...
