The pork rib roast is truly one of the most magnificent entrees. It is juicy, tender and succulent. However, there is more to roasting a Pork Rib Roast than just placing it in the oven and hope for the best results!

For this pork rib roast, there are few steps to follow to achieve the most succulent and flavourful roast. To prepare the roast first, you must make the rub. The rub is a mixture of herbs and spice that compliment the pork. Once you have the mix ready, rub the entire roast with the spices and wrap the roast tightly in a plastic wrap and place the roast in the fridge for four hours. The spices will infuse the meat with a lot of flavours.

Now bring the roast to room temperature, and you are ready to either barbeque the roast or roast it in the oven. The roast is cooked at a temperature of 350 F – 20 minutes per pound. The internal temperature of the rib roast should be 150 F. It is important to place the roast rib side down for both methods.

And finally, it is very important to rest the roast covered for 15 before carving. If given the time to rest, the meat will lose less juice when you carve it, and the meat will be juicier and tastier. 

The pork rib roast pairs beautifully with sweet potato acorn squash mash and stewed red cabbage with apples.
