Pork loin roast is just uncut pork chops, however, though they taste like pork chops, they are also incredibly moist. Baking this roast for hours renders lots of good grease off the fat cap on top, and what it left is a crisp top of fat that melts in your mouth. The meat itself is moist and tender compared to sliced pork chops, and the fat on this roast is absolutely amazing compared to the cooked fat on a bone-in pork chop. I didn’t season this roast because I want to be able to use it for other recipes, but you are more than welcome to season before baking. This roast makes a beautiful option for a picnic, or a dinner party. My roast was 6 lbs and bone-in, this entire roast could easily offer, 10-14 servings. I served this roast with spinach dressed with an orange honey apple cider vinaigrette. You will want a side with a bit of citrus to cut through the greasy nature of the pork fat.
