Pork Roast:

  • 1 tablespoon bacon grease
  • 4 1/12 pounds pork roast *
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 medium yellow onion sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 5 medium potatoes chopped or chunked
  • 5 medium carrots peeled and chopped

Pork Gravy:


  • Pre-heat the oven to 350°F.
  • Add bacon grease to the heated Dutch oven.
  • Sear the roast in the Dutch oven, being sure to brown all sides. This may take about 10 minutes or so.
  • Pour the chicken broth over the roast.
  • Add the sliced onion, minced garlic, potatoes, and carrots all around the roast. 
  • Cover and bake at 350°F for about an hour, or until it reaches an internal temperature between 145° to 160°F. 
  • Once your roast and vegetables are fully cooked, you can make a simple gravy. You can make it right in the same pan after removing the contents, or in a different skillet.
  • Whisk together the pork broth and flour over low to medium heat.
  • Then add water, salt, and pepper to the broth mixture, and constantly stir until the gravy starts to thicken.
  • Once the gravy has thickened enough to form a gravy, it's ready to eat.
  • Pair the gravy with the pork roast and vegetables.
