    I have a 1.5lb pork roast and a glass pan. How long should I cook it, and at what temp?

    My dad the chef (actually) says 40-45 minutes at 325-350, and watch it closely so it doesn't overcook.

    That's a fairly petite port roast, st. Do you have a meat thermometer, I hope?

    Being so small I would jazz it up a bit so it doesn't dry out. May I suggest inserting some garlic slices (use the tip of a sharp knife to make a small hole in the meat) and wrapping the meat in several slices of bacon This adds wonderful flavor to the meat.

    The temperatures are on the high side, however: go for 150 degrees internal temperature, and let the roast sit for ten minutes before you carve it (it will keep cooking inside).

    Petite means it's got to be watched more closely, is all, because it will overcook more quickly.

    Just for you?

    You should have bought a bigger roast. My boys would have really enjoyed a second dinner :D
