Slow Roasted Pork Loin, Potatoes, Carrots & Shallots, the update — 7 Comments

  1. Katie – an interesting way to cook pork loin roast! I have always cooked it the same way I would cook a beef roast – 325 degrees, until pork is 145 degree inner temp…works great every time! The finishing work looks fabulous…there is always some sort of snafu in renos right?

  2. I will use the mix to rub into the pork neck roast sitting in the fridge for tonight but it will have to roasted at the temperature I normally use to fit in with the current “load shedding” schedule. We have a 50/50 chance of being cut off this week.
    When we are in France I always stock up on “pork chops” à la Katie – thanks for the tip.
    We have had our moments with plumbing during our renovations – the French way of doing it is different!

  3. Wow, rubber hose? That’s a new one! Here. We use plastic or copper, I think. We have an electric mat under the bathroom tile to warm the floor. It’s on a timer, so it only warms for the early pending when we go in there barefooted. Amazing the innovations our contractor came up with!

  4. Roast looks delicious! Unfortunately, the one I bought this week will have to go in the crockpot. I did cut four nice chops from it first and once done and dinner has been eaten, I’ll slice some for sandwiches and shred the rest for pulled pork. It’s a great way to get a lot of meals for just the two of us.

    The ceiling is looking great! Can’t wait to see it finished.

  5. Ina, I usually use a meat thermometer and take it out when done…. this time I just let it cook and it was more tender than usual.

    Gil, I hope you liked it…. and glad you like my pork chop trick LOL It’s the only way I can get them thick enough for us.

    Zoomie, I dream of in-floor heating – instead of throwing a log on the fire. Yes, rubber is all the rage here – copper being very expensive.

    nightsmusic, I usually get about 12 meals out of a whole pork loin here, 5 – 6 ponds. It’s a great way to buy it.

    Betty, thanks…. rubber pipes are repaired.

    Gil – Yay!!!
