There’s nothing more nostalgic for me than a good Sunday roast. Beef or pork sirloin, I’m not picky, I love either one. I’ve made this sirloin pork roast for dinner numerous times and every single time it’s perfectly juicy and full of flavor. It’s probably one of the only “grown up” meals I loved as a child and I still remember sitting impatiently at the table as the aroma made me nuts.
And, the tradition has continued as my kids love this meal too. Pork is a succulent meat, one that many tend to overcook and dry out for fear of not cooking it long enough. This makes it inedible without mounds of gravy. Not this pork loin roast recipe, this one is the best!
Pork Sirloin Roast
I originally found this recipe on the blog, Seriously Good by Kevin Weeks. The blog is gone now and sadly Kevin passed away. While I didn’t know Kevin I did have the opportunity to enjoy this delicious recipe of his. I am sure he is sorely missed.
I’m so glad I saved this recipe. I would have been seriously bummed out to go there and find it had disappeared. Mine isn’t exactly like his, there were a few small tweaks, but it’s positively the best sirloin pork roast I’ve ever had.
