4 Impressive Pork Roast Recipes

Whether you have company coming, making a meal for a date night, or wanting to class up family dinner, these fancy pork roast are made to impress. The wonderful meal and presentation will keep your guests talking. 

How To Tell When Pork Is Done:

  • Internal temperature reads 145°F (for medium rare) to 160°F (well done)
  • Meat will be entirely white (well done) or warm and slightly pink in the middle (medium rare) 
  • Always allow meat to rest for at least 10 minutes before serving 

How to Plate Like a Pro: 

1. Consider adding brightly colored garnishes that highlight the ingredients within the dish - apples and cranberries, for example, would work well in these dishes. 

2. Add height to the plate by standing roasts on their ends.

3. Use molds to shape malleable foods (e.g. mashed potatoes) into clean shapes.

4. Select white plates as the blank canvas for your masterpiece. Too much detail on a plate may take away from the food.
