Pork Roast Seasoning  - Add Fab Flavours
to Your Oven-Cooked Roast Pork

If 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


  • Grind the salt, cumin, coriander, rosemary and peppercorns and, if using, the caraway seeds
  • Once ground add to a bowl
  • Add the mustard, paprika, chili and garlic powders to the bowl and combine
  • Finally, crumble in the dried parsley. Combine thoroughly

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 salt: sea/rock/flakes etc. Not only are these less processed, they will add better flavour! Of course, if you're on a low sodium diet you can reduce the amount the recipe says or leave it our altogether.

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.

Why You Should Make Your Own Pork Seasonings

  • More flavour than store-bought blends that will be transferred to your roasted meat
  • Manufactured blends may contain a lot of processed salt or filler ingredients to bulk them up like cheap chili powder and husks. Plus they often contain artificial colours, additives or preservatives
  • You don't know when they were manufactured. They may have been sitting in the store for months, years even, slowly losing their flavour!
  • If you're able to use organic ingredients your pork roast seasoning recipes will be free of pesticides and GMO's!

So, for the best roasted pork I recommend you to have a go at making your own. And with just a few ingredients, you can create the blend exactly how you like it.
