If an oven-cooked pork is on the menu, then this pork roast seasoning is just the recipe for you. Using a blend of tasty spices and herbs, it can be made in minutes and will flavour beautifully and season perfectly along with mouthwatering aromas. (See the bottom of the page for more of my homemade seasonings and blends)
What You'll Need: (makes about 8 tablespoons)
2 tbsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp dried rosemary
2 tbsp dried parsley
1 tbsp coriander seeds
1 tbsp caraway seeds (optional)
4 tsp paprika powder
4 tsp black peppercorns
2 tsp mustard powder
2 tsp garlic powder
2-3 tsp salt (see note 2 below)
2 tsp chili powder
tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon
Store your roast pork spices in a cool place in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months.
Note: Dry toasting the peppercorns, coriander and cumin seeds prior to grinding and combining is recommended for adding even more flavour to your blend. Click here to read more about this cooking technique. (Link opens in new window)
Note 2: You can use table salt for this recipe and it'll taste great. However, I recommend using a quality sea, rock or kosher salt. Not only are these healthier, they will add better flavour!
Ingredient Note: Use a few whole spices if you have them as these will add the best flavour to your pork roast seasoning. If it's more convenient, use pre-ground powders and reduce the amount the recipe requires by half. For example, for 2 tablespoons of cumin seeds you would use 1 tablespoon of pre-ground cumin. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well and stir in with the other powders when making.
