Fatty, sweet, spicy, and succulent - this recipe is a fantastically easy option for any pork roast and especially shines using a Pork Loin End Roast.

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Cook Time: 1 Hours

Servings: 6-8 adults


  • (1) Pork Loin End Roast
  • (6) Cloves Garlic - Coarsely Chopped
  • (2 Tbsp) Rosemary
  • (1 Tbsp) Whole Fennel Seeds
  • (2 tsp) Crushed Red Pepper
  • (2 tsp) Ground Black Pepper
  • (1 tsp) Salt
  • (1/4 cup) Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  1. Thaw your pork roast - I usually do this overnight in my sink, or over a couple days in the fridge. 
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  3. Combine garlic, rosemary, fennel seeds, crushed red pepper, black pepper, salt, and olive oil in a mini processor or blender. Process/blend until it becomes a paste.
  4. Evenly distribute spice paste across the entire pork roast, then place the pork roast with the fat cap up on a roasting pan. 
  5. Place pork roast in the oven. (If you are using a roasting pan that allows you to put water under the roast without touching it, put water in the bottom of the pan now)
  6. After 30 minutes, drop the temperature of the oven to 325°F. If you are making quick side dishes, this is the time to start those. 
  7. Roast the pork at the reduced temperature for roughly 35 minutes, or until the pork roast registers at 145°F. 
  8. Once the roast reaches temperature, pull it from the oven and wrap it in foil to rest for 10-15 minutes. 
  9. Slice and serve for your family and friends!
