One of the Best Pork Roasts is also the EASIEST Pork Roasts! ONE seasoning mix.... that you might already have in your cupboard

This past week has been so busy that planning dinner has been spur-of-the-moment, and cooking and baking is something I just did not have the time to do nor the interest.  Something that can basically cook itself is what I needed and wanted and luckily, a pork roast does that.

We have a spice blend in our cupboard that is made for steaks, but I have to be honest and admit I do not like it on steak. It's McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning -and although I like to use it on pork and even chicken, I rarely resort to using it on steak.  But oh, how good it is on this pork roast!

   I buy mine at Sam's Club in the large size, but you can find it in almost grocery store as well.  It's a very popular blend.  I'm also linking with my affiliate link to it on Amazon since so many readers buy their groceries online as well.

There is no real 'recipe' since it only involves two items!

PORK ROAST - any size

Sprinkle the meat with the seasoning.  Heavy or light, depending on how much flavor you like.  I covered it pretty heavy as we like our pork roast with a 'kick'.  Place it in a roasting pan and if you are roasting in the oven, you can cover it and roast at 350 (ish) for an hour and then uncover and finish roasting until golden brown - OR can roast it without cover, but add some water to the pan so it won't burn while roasting (about a cup should do it).  You can place this in your crock pot or slow cooker or if you are like me and own a sun oven, just place it in the pan with the lid and let it cook away in the sun all day (since things in the solar ovens don't burn, you don't have to watch it like you do in the oven).

I served ours with steamed cauliflower and a homemade cheese sauce.  So good!

If you don't own a solar oven, but are interested in them, there are a number of brands on the market.  I bought mine almost five (5) years ago (?) now - it's been a while anyway.  I LOVE mine and still use it often as I hate to heat up the house on hot summer days, and I also love using the free power of the sun to cook and not having to use electricity.  It's a win/win situation.

2022 Update to this post:  Apparently "MY" solar oven brand is hard to find now but Amazon still has other styles and brands available.    Sun Ovens
