I’m a big fan of one pot roasted dinners. Being able to prepare and cook an entire meal in one dish is the best…the clean up is easy and your workload is very minimal. I love to use this method for roasting chicken, and also for roasting pork. You just can’t beat being able to throw everything into one dish, then magically 2 hours or so later, you have dinner ready. A full meal in one dish. Really the easiest kind of dinner…the kind that makes you heave a sigh of relief around 5:00 when everyone in the house is beginning to fall apart. Fret not, dinner will be ready soon. Nothing left to do but have the kids set the table, and then you can pour yourself a glass of wine.
The great thing about preparing a dinner like this is that you can use any vegetables that you have on hand like potatoes, carrots, celery, parsnip, onions and squash. Basically any vegetable that roasts well in the oven, is perfect for a one-pot roasted dinner. But I highly recommend using apples, and the more the better. When they roast they get soft and by dinner time they have magically turned into a delicious applesauce that pairs perfectly with pork. SO good.
In my hungry haste I actually forgot to get an after picture of this dish, so you’ll just have to see the before. Actually I think that’s for the better, the lighting at dinner time here up north is the pits, so the after picture wouldn’t have been as bright and cheery (when is summer coming back again?!). Anyway…once the roast is done, you just cut it into chops so each person gets a bone…this roast is basically one long series of bone in pork chops and it’s delicious! Bone in chops are my favourite cut of pork, besides bacon. Because bacon. I’m off track again…I think I need a vacation.
One Pot Oven Roasted Bone In Pork Rib Roast
- 1 - 4 lb bone in pork rib roast
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp fresh ground pepper
- 4 apples I used MacIntosh apples
- 1 large red onion cut into chunks
- 3 carrots cut into chunks
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
Place the bone-in pork rib roast in an oven safe roasting dish. I like to use my enamel skillet.
In a bowl combine the olive oil, minced garlic, salt and pepper. Set aside.
Cut up your apples, carrots and onions into about 2 inch chunks.
Place them around the pork roast.
Pour the olive oil mixture onto your roast, covering the top side. Rub in.
Drizzle the apples, carrots and onions with a little extra olive oil.
Place your roast into your 425 degree oven and roast at this high heat for about 10-15 minutes. This is to 'sear' the outside of the roast, which helps to keep the meat moist.
After the 10-15 minute searing time period, reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees. Roast until the internal temperature of the meat reaches 150-155 degrees. Depending on your oven, this can be about 2 to 3 hours.
Once the optimal internal temperature is reached, remove the roast from your oven and let it rest for about 10 minutes. The internal temperature will continue to rise about 5 degrees once outside of the oven.
Slice into chops and serve with the roasted vegetables and roasted applesauce.
