Easy Pork Roast

This easy pork roast is made by browning a pork roast in a heavy pot or dutch oven and cooking it on the stove top.

By making a pork pot roast this way, you can have a great tasting easy pork roast dinner with very flavorful gravy, and leftover pork for a bbq pulled pork sandwich or two.

The meat will be absolutely tender, you will be able to cut it with a fork.

If you have leftover pork roast, it can easily be pulled apart with a fork and mixed with some of your favorite bbq sauce and heated for great pulled pork sandwiches.

It is much quicker to make than pulled pork recipes or pulled pork crock pot recipes, and the taste will be wonderful.

I prefer to use a piece of boneless pork loin roast for this easy pork roast recipe, as it is much leaner than a pork shoulder roast or a pork butt roast, but those cuts of pork can also be used for this recipe.

The roast pork loin cooking time is about 2 1/2 hours from start to finish.

A 2 lb. roast will make 4 dinner servings plus leftovers for pulled pork.


  • 2 lb. boneless pork loin
  • 1 tbsp. margarine
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped coarse
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed or cut up small
  • seasoning salt, pepper
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 tbsp. flour mixed with 1/4 cold water


  • Rinse and dry the pork loin.
  • Sprinkle seasoning salt and pepper on the fat side.
  • Melt margarine over medium high heat in a heavy pot or dutch oven.
  • Add pork loin, fat side down to brown.
  • Sprinkle seasoning salt and pepper on up side.
  • When fat side is sufficiently browned, turn roast over and brown the other seasoned side.
  • Rotate the meat until all surfaces are browned.
  • Add onion and garlic to cook along with last edge you are browning.
  • **This process should take about 20-30 minutes.

  • Add 1 cup of boiling water, cover pot with lid, and simmer for about 2 hours.
  • Turn roast over after 1 hour.
  • When roast is very tender, remove from pot to plate and cover with pot lid to keep warm.
  • Stir mixture of 2 tbsp. flour and 1/4 cup water into liquid in pot.
  • Turn up heat and bring to boil while stirring.
  • Cook for a few minutes until thickened.
  • Adjust seasonings.
  • Slice some of the meat crosswise into 1/2 inch slices and serve with the gravy.

Pulled Pork:

  • Using forks, pull the leftover roast apart lengthwise while still warm.
  • Drizzle with Teriyaki bbq sauce, or your favorite sauce.
  • A little ketchup can also be added.
  • Mix lightly, but well, adding more sauce, until the consistency is to your liking.
  • Cover and refrigerate for a few hours so flavors can blend.
  • When ready to use, bring to room temperature or reheat and add to your favorite bread or bun.
  • Delicious!
