I tried this when we were bored with 'boring pork' and 'boring gravy'. The rub has a kick and the gravy was a hit with the kids!

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).

  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium-low heat. Cook and stir minced garlic, pepper, oregano, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, dried thyme, mustard, marjoram, and basil in hot butter until fragrant, thick, and easy to spread, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Place pork in a roasting pan. Spread garlic mixture over the top of the roast and season with salt. Pour beer into bottom of the roasting pan and cover pan with aluminum foil.

  • Roast in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Remove aluminum foil and continue to cook for 1 hour. Increase temperature to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) and cook until pork is slightly pink in the center, about 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

  • Remove roast to a plate to rest and tent with aluminum foil. Place roasting pan over medium-low heat and whisk flour, garlic salt, and onion powder into the pan drippings. Cook and whisk until gravy thickens, about 5 minutes. Serve roast with gravy.

Cook's Note:

Adjust cooking times to the size of the meat and desired doneness. I like my pork well done, always a minimum of 180 degrees F (82 degrees C).

Add additional liquid (water or stock) to produce a thinner gravy.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

One of our favourite AR recipes. We were so impressed with this pork roast. The rub is delicious and we could taste it with every bite. We like our pork a little pink so we did adjust the time to suit ourselves. Only trouble we had was there seemed to be too much flour which thickened the gravy to a paste hubby's first time at gravy so he added water and tried his best but the lumps were there. Didn't care cause it was best gravy ever! A million thanks for sharing this recipe! It will be a keeper! Yey KayDe5056! My 300th review on AR was a hit! Read More

I really liked the spice rub on the pork and the pork was tasty but the gravy was way too salty. I thought for sure that the 1 tablespoon of garlic salt in the gravy had to be a mis-print so I cut it back to 1 teaspoon and it was still too salty. We ended up rinsing the gravy off of our sliced pork and throwing away the gravy. Sorry but I probably won't make this one again. Read More

The flavor from the rub was excellent and the roast was juicy and very tasty. I like my pork a bit more done so will cook covered for longer next time. After cooking as long as specified uncovered most of the beer and juices had dried to the pan. I added some water and a bit of butter and still had a great gravy! Read More

This was yummy! I love a little kick and cooking in beer added a great taste and a kickin gravy. My whole family enjoyed it! The pork was moist and tender and made great sandwiches! My recommendation is to skip the garlic salt ( too much!) and salt to taste. Also may have more of a kick than some can handle like my 91 year old Mom! Read More

This was very good. My pork stayed juicy and the flavor penetrated throughout the meat. I made this with potatoes carrots and celery roasted in the same pan. My family enjoyed this as well and was good as leftovers the next day. I may lower the salt content the next go-around though (only as a personal preference but I will definitely make this again.

This was way too spicy and I love spicy food. I followed the recipe exactly and I'm experienced in cooking. The meat tasted good once I scraped off the peppery part but the gravy was too peppery it overpowered the flavor. Read More
