Cajun Roasted Pork

Cajun Roasted Pork – Serves 6

Ingredients

seasoning mix
2 teaspoons black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon paprika — sweet
1 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

3 tablespoons butter — unsalted
1 tablespoon chicken fat (preferred) — or vegetable oil
1/2 cup onion — finely chopped
1/2 cup celery — finely chopped
1/2 cup green bell pepper — finely chopped
1 tablespoon garlic — minced
4 pounds boneless pork loin roast

Instructions

Thoroughly combine the seasoning mix ingredients. Place all the
ingredients except the roast in a large skillet. Saute about 4
minutes over high heat, stirring occasionally. Cool.

Meanwhile, place the roast in a baking pan, fat side up. Make several
deep slits in the meat with a knife, to form pockets, being careful
not to cut through to the bottom. Stuff the pockets with some of the
vegetable mixture, then thoroughly rub vegetable mixture over the
entire roast by hand. If any of the mixture is left, spread it evenly
over the top and little on the sides of the roast.

Bake uncovered at 275F for 3 hours, then at 425F until dark brown
on top and meat is white in the center, 10 to 15 minutes more.
