Simple Roast Pork
- 4 lbs pork roast
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 3 tbsp garlic chopped
- 1/2 tsp thyme
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp salt
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
- In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Using a pastry brush, spread the mixture all over the pork shoulder.
- Set the meat on a rack set into a roasting pan. Roast for 20 minutes, and then reduce the heat to 325 degrees F. Continue to cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the shoulder reads 185 degrees F, about 4 hours. Remove the pork from the oven and let stand until cool enough to handle, about 30 minutes.
