What Is the Oven Temperature Typically Used to Bake a Pork Roast?

Preheat the oven to 450 F. Place the roasting pan in the middle of the oven, and bake the pork roast fat side up for 10 minutes at 450 F to brown the meat.

When the 10 minutes are up, reset the oven to 250 F and bake the pork roast for 50 to 80 minutes until a meat thermometer placed in the thickest part of the roast reaches 145 F. Slow roasting makes the pork roast moist and tender. Upon removing the roast from the oven, let it rest for three minutes. Place the roast on a cutting board, cover it with aluminum foil and leave it for about 15 minutes before slicing.
