This oven cooked pork roast, aka Schweinebraten, is so-o-o delicious. A staple in traditional German cooking! Meat dishes are very important in German cuisine and roast pork recipes are among the favorites. This pork roast is first browned on the stove and then oven roasted. Yes, it's a bit more work doing it this way, but the results are well worth it. Wunderbar!
Pork roast cooking times need to be followed carefully. Ideally, use a meat thermometer to make sure your final temperature is 170°F. And there you have it, perfect oven cooked pork roast!
Preheat oven to 350°F. and roast for 35 minutes per pound plus an additional 35 minutes. Doesn't get much easier than that!
Pork used to be considered as an unhealthy meat. However, with modern farming methods, pork is now quite lean. In fact, it is often called the "other white meat" and is considered a good alternative to red meat.
As much as possible, trim the fat off the pork, either before cooking, or at least after, and this becomes a wonderful lean meat to enjoy.
