South Shore Pork Roast

In Storm Lake, Iowa, Pat Botine surrounds this moist pork roast with a pretty combination of carrots and onion. It feeds a family of four with plenty left over for dishes later in the week. And since the creamy gravy is served at the table, the leftover pork is easy to use.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 25 min. Bake: 1 hour 20 min.

    10-12 servings (3-1/3 cups gravy)


  • 1 boneless pork loin roast (3 to 3-1/2 pounds)

    The family loves this recipe. The pork comes out nice and moist and the gravy is delicious. The only thing I do different is that I add potatoes with the carrots and start the gravy using the fat from the drippings with flour, then add the sour cream and the rest of the broth. I probably also used a bit more butter for browning and sauteing.I highly recommend this recipe.

    This was a delicious pork roast, and easy to put together. I cooked it in my counter top oven and it worked perfectly. I like the fact that it's truly a roast.....slow cooking the meat seems to force a lot of the juices from it, leaving the meat almost dry. I was going to use some of the leftovers to make another dish, but we ended up just slicing and eating the meat over the next two days! Next time I think I'll cut the butter down to 2T. to brown the roast, and not make the sour cream sauce, as there was a lot leftover.
