  • Roasting pan with a rack
  • Meat thermometer
  • Cooking twine
  • Basting brush


  • 1 bone-in pork roast approximately 4-5 pounds
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup dry white wine optional
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour for gravy, if desired


  • Preheat and Prepare:
    Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  • Prepare the Pork:
    Pat the pork roast dry with paper towels. Score the skin with a sharp knife in a diamond pattern.
  • Create Herb Rub:
    In a small bowl, combine minced garlic, chopped rosemary, chopped thyme, olive oil, salt, and black pepper to create a flavorful herb rub.
  • Season the Pork:
    Rub the herb mixture all over the pork, ensuring it penetrates into the scored skin for maximum flavor.
  • Tie with Cooking Twine:
    If your pork roast has a bone, tie it with cooking twine to help maintain its shape during roasting.
  • Roast in the Oven:
    Place the seasoned pork roast on a rack in the roasting pan, and insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the meat without touching the bone.
  • Roast to Perfection:
    Roast in the preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes per pound, or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F (63°C) for medium doneness. Baste the pork with its own juices every 30 minutes for added moisture and flavor.
  • Rest Before Carving:
    Once done, remove the roast from the oven, tent it loosely with foil, and let it rest for about 15 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute, ensuring a moist and tender result.
  • Optional Gravy:
    If desired, make a simple gravy by mixing flour with pan drippings and adding broth and wine. Cook until thickened, stirring constantly.
  • Carve and Serve:
    Carve the pork roast into slices, and serve with your favorite side dishes.


Craft an aromatic herb rub that resonates with your palate. A blend of garlic, rosemary, thyme, and other preferred herbs can transform the pork into a sensory delight.
