Pork Roast Recipe


  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  2. Place the pork roast, fat side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the salt, garlic salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of the chili powder.
  4. Rub the spice mix into the roast thoroughly.
  5. Place the roast in the oven and cook for 2 to 2-1/2 hours. If you’re using a meat thermometer, the internal temperature should reach 165°F by this point.
  6. In a separate saucepan, combine the apple jelly, catsup, vinegar, and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer uncovered for 2-3 minutes.
  7. After the roast has cooked for the specified time, brush it generously with the glaze you just prepared.
  8. Sprinkle the top of the roast with the crushed corn chips.
  9. Continue roasting the pork for an additional 15 minutes, or until the thermometer reads 170°F.
  10. Once done, remove the roast from the oven and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  11. Collect any pan drippings, including any chips that might have fallen off. Add water to these drippings until you have 1 cup of liquid.
  12. Bring this mixture to a boil and serve it alongside the roast as a flavorful sauce.

Serve the pork roast sliced, ensuring each portion has a bit of the crispy corn chip topping. The blend of flavors in this dish is sure to impress your guests and leave them asking for the recipe. Enjoy!
