This is a fine Halloween loin to have before a night of candy and partying! Beef loin can be used instead if desired. If you don't have a roasting pan, use a large, deep glass pan lined with aluminum foil.

Instructions Checklist

  • Place pork roast in the center of a roasting pan; arrange pearl onions around the roast. Pour in water, olive oil, and lime juice. Evenly coat roast with black pepper, cayenne pepper, tarragon, and garlic powder. Spread blue cheese dressing over entire roast.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until roast is no longer pink in the center, about 90 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

  • Transfer roast to a deep-sided serving dish; arrange onions around roast. Scoop enough cooking liquid to coat the bottom of the serving dish. Place the remaining liquid in a gravy boat.

Oh man. This one was well named. It was quite ugly... but super delicious! My family of three went crazy over it! Even the picky toddler! Six very enthusiastic thumbs up! My blue cheese was homemade and we prefer sweet onions over pearl. Only two things that I did differently. I'll be making this again and again and again..... Read More
