- 4 to 6 lb. boneless pork loin roast (double)

Pork Loin Roast Recipe Instructions:
Trim excess fat from roast. Place roast on rack in an open roasting pan. Insert meat thermometer so the bulb is centered in thickest part. Do not add water. Do not cover. Roast in slow oven (325 degrees) for 1 hour.
Meanwhile, pare potatoes and place on rack around roast. Continue cooking, uncovered, until roast reaches an internal temperature of 170 degrees (allow 30 to 35 minutes per pound), turning potatoes occasionally. Remove roast and cover with foil. Remove 2 teaspoons drippings to large frying-pan. Turn temperature up to 375 degrees.
Cover pan and continue cooking potatoes 20 minutes, turning once or twice. Meanwhile add celery, water, dill weed and salt to drippings in frying-pan; cover tightly and cook slowly 12 to 15 minutes or until celery is tender-crisp. Carve roast and serve on warm platter with potatoes and celery.
