What’s the best cut to roast pork in the oven?

This recipe calls for boneless. If you purchase a pork shoulder the cut will be leaner and will take longer to cook to get that tender, juicy meat. Bone in is also delicious! A few weeks ago a roasted pork, bone in and it was so juicy. Don’t forget though that the bone accounts for part of the weight. If you are serving a hungry crowd, I’d recommend almost a half pound per person, minus the bone.

Flexible Cook Time

One of the best things about this dish is that flexibility during and after cooking. You almost can’t overcook pork roast and if if gets cold you can put it back in the oven for a few minutes without concern of it drying out. The pork cooks uncovered so it develops a dark brown crusty exterior.

For dessert I recommend Cowboy Ranch Cookies or Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars.
