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 all? wow...thanks
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.
There's a helpful chart here: http://www.askthemeatman.com/pork_cooking_chart.htm.
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).
Thanks for the suggestions! Yes...it is small, but I'm only feeding me
Petite means it's got to be watched more closely, is all, because it will overcook more quickly.
Just for you?
Yep...fun times lately
it has an internal thermometer...so I'll keep an eye out for it
You should have bought a bigger roast. My boys would have really enjoyed a second dinner
It came in my angel ministries box...decent food
Wow...that's good! You're still invited for birthday cake, you know that, right?
