Ingredients for Rack of Pork Roast Dinner
The world is yours when putting together a rack of pork roast. In this recipe, we are cooking everything in one pan in the oven. We used carrots and onions to keep it super simple, but feel free to add your favourite veggies, even potatoes or sweet potatoes would be a great addition to this recipe.
For the rub for roast, it’s just as simple and delicious. We used 1 tbsp of dijon mustard, 1 tbsp of mayonnaise, 1 tbsp of fresh thyme and 1 tbsp of fresh rosemary, and of course salt, lots of salt! Then, we simply just used pepper to season the rack of pork roast.
This rub is juicy and will marinate your pork perfectly and give you a burst of flavour!
