Pork roast

serves 8

Put the oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Measure one tablespoon of olive oil in a small dish.

Add salt, pepper, dried oregano (or rosemary, sage or thyme) to the oil. Mix this spice rub together and rub it all over the pork roast.

Place the roast on a rack in a roasting pan, fat side up, and put the roast in the 450 degree preheated oven.

Roast for 10 minutes, then RE-SET THE OVEN TEMPERATURE TO 250 DEGREES.

Continue cooking for about 50-80 minutes or until the meat registers 150 degrees on a meat thermometer.

Remove the roast from the oven and set on a cutting board. Cover the meat with tin foil and let it rest for about 15 minutes before slicing it.
