Herbed Pork Roast with Onions and Mushrooms

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Cook: 1-1/2 hours + standing


8-10 servings

THIS favorite recipe was one of my dear mother's, and each time I serve it, I'm filled with warm memories. This was our family's celebration roast. Mother served it on birthdays and holidays. The combination of herbs enhances the drippings as well, so I use it to make a flavorful gravy. -Ruth Bethurum, Ozan, Arkansas


  • 1 boneless pork loin roast (3-1/2 to 4 pounds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup water

  1. In a Dutch oven coated with cooking spray, brown roast over medium heat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Combine water, broth, ketchup, garlic and seasonings; pour over roast.
