Blogged by: Victoria Minell 17 Jul 2023

This family-friendly meal is less than $20*, all it takes is some olive oil, salt, pepper, a little over an hour in the oven and you’ve got yourself a huge hit!
We love that this pork roast recipe is a “fancy without the fuss” meal that will please even the pickiest of eaters. The flavor palate is simple – back to the meat and 3 veg you grew up with. We believe this pork roast is naturally juicy enough however feel free to serve it up with a homemade gravy or mushroom sauce. 
If the crackling isn't as crispy as you'd like near the end of the roasting time, remove the potatoes and carrots from the pan and return the pork for another 10-15 mins on 200 degrees. Keep a close eye ensuring it doesn’t burn.
