The nutritional content of recipes is calculated by a registered dietitian. Because ingredients and measurements may vary, the values we give are close approximations.


  1. Place garlic, coriander seeds and oregano in food processor or blender; pulse until finely chopped. Add olive oil and vinegar; process into a paste.
  2. Place pork roast in a large dish. Using a sharp knife, make a dozen 1 ½ -inch slits all over roast. Fill each slit with about 1 teaspoon of garlic paste. Rub any leftover paste over roast. Season with pepper to taste. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place pork in a large roasting pan. Pour any accumulated juices over roast. Cover tightly with foil; roast 2 hours. Discard foil; add ½ cup of the broth to pan. Roast, uncovered, 2 hours more or until pork is fork-tender, adding additional broth every 30 minutes. Transfer to a platter; let stand 15 minutes before carving.

Serving Suggestion: Serve with roasted potatoes and a frozen, steamed vegetable medley.
