Michelle Cooks Stuff: Pork Roast Edition

One of the handy benefits of being at home full time is that I have the ability to cook more often. Yesterday my freezer was looking a little bit barren, so I took out the pork roast. I had originally planned to just bake it off, but that seemed a little bit boring. I’m a writer. It’s my job to have imagination, right?

I went poking around the fridge for something that would impart some sort of flavor into the meat. I came up with: pomegranate molasses, brown sugar, and bacon.


All aboard the train to awesome town.

You’ll need:

1 large pork roast – 3 lbs

1/2 cup pomegranate molasses

1/2 cup brown sugar, light or dark – doesn’t matter.

1/2 pack of bacon


What you’ll need to do:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees
  2. Set your roast in a fairly large roasting pan.
  3. Salt and pepper liberally
  4. Mix molasses and brown sugar in a small bowl
  5. Slather it on the meat. Don’t be shy 😉
  6. Wrap strips of bacon around the outside
  7. Place in oven uncovered and cook until the inside reaches 140 degrees

SPOILER ALERT:  This is amazing! Next time I may crunch up some ginger snap cookies and put them in the molasses and brown sugar mixture.
