Pork Roast with Mashed Potatoes and Gravy

This home-style meal can be made ahead of time and reheated. Simply strain and skim the cooking juices and cover and store in the fridge. Then finish the gravy in a pan before serving. Lee Bremson - Kansas City, Missouri

    4 servings


  • 1 boneless whole pork loin roast (3 to 4 pounds)
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
  • 1 cup julienned sweet red pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar

  • Remove pork; cut some into cubes measuring 2-1/2 cups and save for another use. (Keep remaining pork warm.)
  • For gravy, strain cooking juices and skim fat; pour 1 cup into a small saucepan. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into cooking juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.

    This was very good. The only thing I did different was to use 1T each of cornstarch and cold water to make the gravy a little thicker.

    Came out so tender and juicy, just wonderful! The only thing I'll change for next time is to include less vinegar, just because my family prefers it that way. Other than that, very yummy!

    my husband and I just love this recipe. Turns out great every time. Gravy is a little thin so added more cornstarch.

    I would make this again with one exception - I'd leave out the cider vinegar. The gravy was really tangy. My son loved it but my husband wouldn't eat it at all. I did like how easy to prepare it was. The meat was very easy to slice, but a little dry without the gravy (which was tangy).

    It was better on the second day! When I first pulled it out of the pot, the cider vinegar was a little over powering, but still good. The next day it was even more delicious! It also makes great sandwhiches!
