Roasted pork is kind of difficult to get right, if you cook it too long it has a tendency to become dry. To get it right I recommend searing the pork first and then cooking at a lower temperature.

Roasted Pork Loin
- 1 Pork Loin (mine was 1.31 pounds)
- 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
- 1 Tablespoon Organic No Salt 21 Spice Seasoning
- 1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
- 1/2 Teaspoon White Pepper
Take the spices out and set aside.
Rub the seasoning into your pork roast, coating evenly.
Take the coconut oil and melt into your cast iron pot on a medium high heat. Add the pork roast. Sear.
Continue to sear on each side.
Place the entire cast iron pot into a preheated 250 degree oven. Cook for about 90 minutes. The roast will be done when it has an internal temperature of 155 to 160 degrees.
Remove from the pot and place on your cutting board. Allow to rest for a few minutes before carving.
Cut it up and serve. Enjoy!
