When I tried this recipe and added just a few little changes, and cooked it properly, it was so delicious! Juicy, moist, tender, and with just a little Texas kick!
Ingredients
  Celery stalk 1⁄2 , sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
  Butter 1 Tablespoon
  Cayenne pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Dried oregano 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Dried thyme 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground mustard 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), minced
  Pork loin roast 2 Pound
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste
  Olive oil 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Carrot 1 , diced
  Red bell pepper 1 , diced
  Stalk celery 1⁄2 , sliced into 0.5 in pieces
  Onion 1 Medium, diced
  All purpose flour 2 Tablespoon
  Chicken broth 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Heavy cream 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
Directions

Preheat oven to 300F degrees.

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the cayenne, oregano, pepper, thyme, mustard, and garlic. Cook for 1 minute.

Use a paring knife to make several small incisions in the fat side of the roast. Stuff the slits with the spice mix and rub the remaining mix over the the roast. Sprinkle the roast with salt and pepper.

With the olive oil in the bottom of a roasting pan, put the roast in the pan fat side up. Surround the roast with the carrots, red pepper, celery and onion. Lightly salt and pepper the vegetables.

Place the roast in preheated oven and cook for 1 hour and 45 minutes. Increase the temperature to 425F degrees and cook for an additional 15 minutes to brown the roast. Remove roast from pan and let stand 10 minutes before slicing.

Remove the vegetables from the roasting pan and discard. Place the roasting pan with the pan juices over medium heat. Whisk the flour into the hot drippings and cook for 3 minutes. Pour in the chicken stock and cook, whisking occasionally for 5 minutes. Add the heavy cream and stir constantly until heated and thickens.

Serve the gravy over the Real Texas Cajun Roasted Pork Loin Roast.

Story
This is wonderful for a Sunday family meal, or really for anytime you want to make a special meal. I serve it with a vegetable and mashed potatoes with gravy. It’s slow roasted in the oven and the aroma throughout the house is wonderful. I try to make it when David is playing golf and out of the house…If I make it when he’s home, I can’t keep the oven door shut! The last time I made my Real Texas Cajun Roasted Pork Loin Roast, was to celebrate the guys finishing laying my brick floor in my new greenhouse. They are actually more expensive labor, even though they work for food! They are so spoiled with me cooking special gourmet meals for my Real Texas Recipe Book and for Ramona’s Basil Garden Cookbook, that I think they have slowed down on building my greenhouse. It’s been almost 3 months since they started and it’s still not finished! It’s going to be Christmas before I can put my Basils in their new home! I can wait, they don’t realize that they are really my guinea pigs for my new recipes.
