Sirloin Pork Roast

This is my new favorite way to eat pork!  We don't actually eat a great deal of pork in our home.  It might be because I wasn't really raised eating a lot of it or maybe I just haven't found enough recipes to make pork my go-to evening meal, but I crave this recipe every week!  Lately, I like to roast it and add veggies on the cookie sheet after 30 minutes of cookies!  It's great with cauliflower, carrots, potatoes and onions.  Whatever you have around the house and it makes this a really easy one-dish meal!

My hubby picks these pork sirloin steaks up from Costco.  They are cheaper than pork tenderloin, but just as tender and there's barely any fat!  I usually make 2 at a time so that we can truly appreciate the leftovers.  So delicious. . . 

Sirloin Pork Roast  (adapted from allrecipes.com)

1 1/4 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
2 tablespoons olive oil (plus more for searing roast)
1 (3 pound) sirloin tip roast

1. In a small bowl, mix the paprika, kosher salt, garlic powder, black pepper, onion powder, cayenne pepper, oregano, and thyme. 
2. Stir in the olive oil, and allow the mixture to sit about 15 minutes.
3. Place a medium-sized skillet on med-high.  Add a bit of oil (maybe 2 tbls.) to the pan and sear all sides of the roast before moving onto the next step.  It shouldn't take more than 5 minutes to sear the roast on all sides.
4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
5. Place the roast on the prepared baking sheet, and cover on all sides with the spice mixture.
6. Roast 1 hour in the preheated oven, or to a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Let sit 15 minutes before slicing.
