Place pork on rack in shallow roasting pan. Roast in 325F (160C) oven about 2 hours or until meat thermometer registers 160F (70C). Do not overcook. Remove meat to a serving platter; keep warm.
Pour excess fat from roasting pan. Add stock to roasting pan. Bring to boil, scraping up any brown bits. Dissolve cornstarch in 2 Tb (25 ml) cold water. Add to pan. Bring to boil, stirring constantly. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
