Default Best pork roast ever

I made a fantastic pork loin for dinner tonight. I like to make a stuffed
loin, but cheese has always been a problem as it melts and leaks out.
Problem solved.

I took a section of a boneless loin. Making a cut around it, I "unrolled"
it open to expose a lot of surface area. Once open, I put a layer of
Toscana salami, a layer of Parma prosciutto, chunks of a very sharp
provolone cheese. Then I put a thin coating of cracker crumbs over that to
absorb the cheese. Topped all of that with a mix of garlic, basil,
rosemary, black pepper. Note that the meats have plenty of salt so none is
needed.

Rolled it up, tied it, then place it in a cast iron skillet to roast at 325.
When it hit 138 I removed it from the oven and let it rest.

The cracker crumb helped keep the cheese from running out. The flavors were
fantastic, the meat very tender.

It sounds good. How long did it take for the temp to reach 138? I'm asking
because I'd like to try your method and don't have a thermometer for
internal temps. Won't be getting one because I rarely cook large pieces of
meat, so I don't have much use for it.
And did you brown the meat at all?

I've never tried it at all...... :-)
Must put on my "must try" list.

Wonder how this would work in the smoker?

I don't like to use my oven......

Cast iron takes oven temps well, which is why many use cast iron
skillets when they need a small roasting pan. And you can use the same
piece of cookware to brown the meat and roast it... also makes it easy
to turn the dripping's into a gravy.

It's just plain convenient. :-)
I have a Griswold #14 and it's large enough to do a turkey in.
Easy to clean and cuts down on the number of pans needed for prep stages.

If your cast iron pan is well seasoned it can be cleaned as easily as a
non-stick pan. Sponge or scrub lightly under running, not soapy,
water, put back on heat to dry thoroughly. Rub in a little oil if
needed. This assumes you've not let it sit out dirty for hours for
crud to become crusty or sticky. If you have had to do that, then soak
the pan for a while.

If you find the pan needs heavy scrubbing to remove stuck-on stuff,
then it's not seasoned well to begin with. Check rfc archives (or
google this group) for many long passionate descriptions of how to
season your pan. -aem

Or to die from. It sounds delicious, but somewhat loaded with fatty items.

Took about 90 minutes. No, it gets a nice browning at 325 degrees.

CI because it was the first thing I spotted. We use them often for small
roasts, meatloaves, etc. Cooked fat side up, not turned at all.

Only difference is that the fat will not get as crusty. May be even better
that way.

one more question about cast iron, if you don't mind.

i am a great gravy maker, and wonder if scratching around on a cast iron
with my whisk would be a mistake?
does it lift too much of the seasoned pan?
does that make sense?

Deglaze with a wooden spoon... preferably one with a flattened lip.

Thank you. I never would have considered putting meat into the oven
unbrowned, so now I know I can save myself some work
