Sunday Dinners

From the time I was a child, Sunday dinners have always been special to me. It's a time when families can get together, visit, and enjoy a meal together. Having a tasty and hearty Sunday dinner is a great way to finish off the week.

For the following recipe, I used two roasts (about two pounds each) only because they were small and on sale for a good price.

Some people avoid the butt section as it can be quite fatty. Personally, I find that the fat adds so much to the flavor of the meat.

Along with the roasted carrots and potatoes, I served boiled beets and a garden salad.

Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 2 hours
Ready in: 2 hours 20 min
Yields: Serves 4 to 8 people


  • 1 to 2 pork butt roasts
  • 6 carrots, sliced in half lengthwise
  • 8 medium potatoes, cut in half
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, slivered
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • sea salt, to taste
  • fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup water


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Peel and slice the carrots in half as they are going to act as a rack for the pork to sit on. Place them on the bottom of your roasting pan.
  3. Make small slits in the roast and insert the garlic slivers.
  4. Place the potatoes in a bowl and toss with the olive oil.
  5. Place the roast on top of the carrots. Add the potatoes around the roast (see photo).
  6. Sprinkle salt and pepper to the roast, and add rosemary sprigs on top. Add water to the pan and place in the oven.
  7. Cook for approximately 2 hours depending on the size of your roast (or roasts), making sure that the internal temperature reaches 145 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit.
  8. After 1 hour, carefully flip the potatoes over.
  9. When cooked, remove the roasting pan from the oven and let sit about 5 minutes before transferring to a plate to be sliced. Remove carrots and potatoes. Serve and enjoy!

        This recipe looks great and it reminds me of Sunday dinners when I was growing up. I think this is a recipe I will use when I have family over for dinner.
