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.—Pat Botine, Storm Lake, Iowa

  • 1 boneless pork loin roast (3 to 3-1/2 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed

  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

"Missing out on five stars based on a lack of one thing. Potatoes. But stellar recipe besides."

"Many, many thanks to Pat Botine for sharing this wonderful recipe! Must admit to not using the carrots and adding a little more salt and paprika to gravy -- but this recipe is scrumptious. With the sour cream and paprika it has a central European flair and is so simple to make. The amount of gravy is perfect for leftovers and goes great with orzo. So rare to find a recipe online that is this good."
