Cajun Pork Roast


Spicy, savory, aromatic, tender, and simple – what more could a home cook want? Today’s recipe is a quick, easy treatment for pork roast that will leave you hungry for more. I modified the original instructions to fit my current situation: I do not have a grill, so I cooked the roast in the oven. If anyone does follow the instructions for grilling this, let me know how it turns out. I’m anticipating yummy results!


  • 1 (2-pound) pork roast
  • 3 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 2 teaspoons thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.


Combine all seasonings, and rub well over all surfaces of the pork.

Place the pork into a roasting pan, and bake for 45 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the pork reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit.

Remove the pork from the oven, allow to rest for 10 minutes, then slice and serve.


Serves 6.
