We love to make pork roast for a company meal because it adapts beautifully to a wide variety of seasonings and sauces, and it always yields great results.

About the ingredients:

Boneless pork sirloin:

Boneless pork sirloin roasts cook fairly quickly, are easy to carve, and when done to the proper internal temperature, turn out tender, juicy, and full of flavor.

This cut generally weighs between 2-1/2 and 3 pounds, enough for about 6 servings. It’s a great choice for smaller gatherings, or if you’re short on time or oven space.

If you’re having a larger group, simply cook two roasts side by side.

Garlic and herb rub:

Our Italian-inspired garlic and herb rub is made by combining extra virgin olive oil with:

  • Pressed garlic
  • Kosher salt
  • Ground black pepper
  • Orange zest
  • Fresh rosemary
  • Fresh thyme
  • Fresh sage

It’s fabulous on both this boneless pork roast and its fancier cousin, the crown roast. Learn more about cuts of pork from pork.org.

What to serve with a pork roast:

We’ve paired this flavorful entrée with make-ahead accompaniments like stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer, baked pasta and green bean casserole side dishes, and biscotti for dessert.
