Pork Roast

Serves 4-6

12-year-old Derron made this recipe for his mom for Sunday dinner one time when she was feeling sick. After putting together a delicious pork roast sandwich for her, he even cleaned up the kitchen! Now that’s a way to get mom feeling better!


  • 1 medium pork roast (about 4 pounds)
  • 1 garlic clove, sliced
  • Salt and pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons butter


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Make small slits in the roast and insert small pieces of garlic inside. Season the roast with salt, pepper and garlic powder all over the roast.
  3. Add the roast to a roasting pan and sprinkle the sliced onion all over the roast and in the pan. Add water to the pan and add butter to each side of the roast.
  4. Cover the roast and put it in the oven for 2 1/2-3 hours (check with the butcher at the store to find out how long you should cook your roast, since it depends on its size).
  5. Remove the roast from the oven. Let it rest for about 20 minutes, then slice and serve.
