Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Combine the onion, green pepper, celery and garlic in the container of a food processor or blender. Process until finely chopped. Stir in 1 tablespoon of the Creole seasoning.

  • Cut about 8 slits across the roast about 1/2 inch deep. Pack the vegetable mixture into the slits. Rub the remaining tablespoon of Creole seasoning all over the roast. Coat the roast generously with bacon grease, and place in a roasting pan.

  • Bake uncovered for 1 hour, until browned, then cover, and continue cooking for about 3 more hours, or until tender. After the roast is done, you can skim off some of the excess fat and thicken the drippings with a mixture of water and flour if you want your gravy thicker.

Like another review stated something just didn't taste like it went together. The gravy was VERY salty. I love salt and couldn't eat the gravy. Sorry but not for me. Read More

5 Star Plus!!! Didn't have creole seasoning - made some from "Creole Seasoning Blend" on this site. Didn't change a thing except to stuff and rub the roast with the seasoning and wrap it in clear wrap for three hrs. before cooking. The meat was so moist and flavors delicious. I served it with baked sweet potatoes and Chinese Peppered Green Beans (on this site) and applesauce. A definite keeper. Read More

This was wonderful pork roast! I cooked this for a Christmas party and it came out moist and wonderful! Instead of using the bacon grease I layered strips of thick-cut bacon across the top. Read More

Loved it! I used a bone-in roast so baking time was cut down. I also cut lager slits in the roast to use more of the veggie mixture. The gravy was also very good. Read More

Delicious! I used a whole seeded red bell pepper instead of 1/2 a green pepper. By accident I added the entire 2 tablespoons of creole seasoning into the puree. It tasted fine and it eliminates an uneccessary step. I used a 4lb. pork loin instead of a roast. This is so good as a leftover for tacos or in chili. Read More

This was very good. I made as directed except I didn't use the bacon grease...I didn't have any on hand and I also don't wish to clog my arteries any sooner than necessary. It's pretty spicy and the flavor from the spices is enough to give it great taste even without the bacon grease. Thanks for the great recipe Read More
