I spent 3 hours in the kitchen making this delicious Pork Sirloin Roast.
Where is this "sirloin" cut in the pig, you ask?
The sirloin comes from the "loin" area of the pig.
The loin can also be divided up into roasts (blade loin roasts, center loin roasts, and sirloin roasts come from the front, center, or rear of the loin), back ribs, pork cutlets, and pork chops.
(refer to the yellow area in the photo)
This recipe is a full meal in itself, since it is also roasted with vegetables in potatoes.
However, I found out the hard way, that I cannot eat abundant amounts of pork, nor eat pork in 2 consecutive meals.
But don't get me wrong. This is a very delicious, juicy, and tasty recipe.
This recipe is ideal for a romantic dinner occasion (I.e: Valentines, Anniversary, Birthday, etc)
Pork Sirloin Roast
- 1 pork sirloin (about 3-4 pounds. Mine also had bone-in. Try to find boneless if you can)
- 1.5 small onions, chopped.
- 1 apple (I used gala).
- 1 cup of celery, chopped.
- 2 large potatoes, chopped (I used russet. However, red potatoes are more ideal).
- 2 medium tomatoes, chopped.
- 7 oz white wine
- 3 oz water
- 2 tbsp butter
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1) Cross hatch the skin and fat on your pork sirloin.
2) Melt butter in a large skillet and fry all sides of your pork on high heat. Caramelize the meat until the skin is crispy and puffy. Carmelizing your meat will give it a more meaty flavor.
Look at crispy-puffy goodness.
3) Heat your oven to 325F degrees.
4) Place your hunk of meat in a large baking dish. Set aside.
5) Pour off all the excess fat and butter our of your skillet, then add the onions into your skillet.
6) Saute until onions are clear. Then add in celery, apples, and tomatoes.
7) Saute some more, then add the white wine, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and water.
8) Bring mixture to a boil, then pour the mixture over your pork sirloin in the large baking dish.
Ready to go into the oven!!
9) Place your baking dish into the oven, and roast for 1.5 hours. Turn your meat every 30 minutes.
10) In the mean time, boil your potatoes in water for about 20 minutes, or until almost fully cooked. (You could just place the raw potatoes straight into the oven, but boiling the potatoes first saves SO much time)
11) After the 1.5 hours, submerge the potatoes into the saucy vegetables in the baking pan, and bake for an additional 30 minutes.
12) Check your pork sirloin, if the center is not pink, nor bleeding, then your pork roast is finished!
2 hours later..
All done roasting!
13) Thinly slice the pork, and serve with the vegetables and potatoes.
