Pork Roast with Gravy

“I've been making this juicy pork roast and gravy for 40 years,” says Jean Lowrey of Dubach, Louisiana. “Lower in fat and calories, it's one of my first choices to serve guests.”
  • Total Time
    Prep: 10 min. Cook: 50 min.
  • Makes
    8 servings


  • 1 boneless pork sirloin roast (2-1/2 pounds)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 3/4 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons cold water


  • In a Dutch oven, brown roast in oil on all sides. In a small bowl, combine wine, brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and bouillon; pour over roast.
  • Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook for 45-60 minutes or until pork is tender, basting occasionally with pan juices.

    YUM! Made this in the slow cooker and it came out perfect.

    Delicious! Cooked on low in slow cooker for 8 hours. Since there are only two of us, I heated up the leftovers with barbeque sause for sandwiches the next day.

    We loved this recipe! I altered the cooking method slightly to accommodate our more active lifestyle by cooking this on high in the slow cooker for 3 hours, then on low for another 3. It turned out juicy and delicious. My picky-eating 6 y/o stepson called it "spectacular."

    I gave this 5 stars because the flavor was excellent, and the gravy was so flavorful and delicious. However, the cooking method did not work well for me. I turned it down to low and covered it as it said to do, but after an hour, I stuck the meat thermometer in it, and it didn't even register! Pink juices ran out! That was a disaster. It was late, and we were hungry, so I nuked it as a last resort. So next time, I think I would follow the same recipe but bake it in the oven in the sauce in a glass casserole dish covered with a lid and then make the gravy as directed. I think the meat has a better chance of cooking more evenly all the way through, staying moist, and not getting overdone on the bottom. Fabulous recipe, though! I will definitely make it again, but baked instead of cooked on the stovetop.

    This was an excellent way to prepare a pork roast. I will make it again and again and it is quick and easy.

    The pork was moist, tender and full of flavor. The gravy was absolutely delicious. I would definitely make again, but next time, might add a little pepper to give it a touch of heat.
