Country-Style Pork Loin Recipe

Country-Style Pork Loin Recipe

This pork roast is so moist and tender, it melts in your mouth. My son puts it at the top of his list of favorite foods. We like it with mashed potatoes. —Corina Flansberg, Carson City, Nevada
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 5 hours + standing YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 boneless pork loin roast (3 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • Hot mashed potatoes, optional

Directions

  • 1. Cut roast in half. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, onion powder and mustard. Add pork, one portion at a time, and shake to coat. In a large skillet, brown pork in oil on all sides.
  • 2. Transfer to a 5-qt. slow cooker. Pour broth over pork. Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours or until tender. Remove pork and keep warm. Let pork stand for 10-15 minutes before slicing.
  • 3. Strain cooking juices, reserving 2-1/2 cups juices; skim fat from reserved juices. Transfer to a small saucepan. Bring liquid to a boil. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; gradually stir into the pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve pork and gravy with mashed potatoes if desired. Yield: 8 servings.
