The Recipe How-To

“Take a sip of this wine-infused pork and indulge in juicy perfection.”

Now that we have discussed the ingredients, let’s move on to how to make this delicious white wine pork roast.

Step 1: Prep the Pork

Firstly, preheat your oven to 375 degrees F (190°C). Then, take a 2 lb pork loin roast, trim off any excess fat and season it well with salt and pepper.

Step 2: Prepare the Wine Sauce Pour

Next, combine 1 cup of dry white wine, 1/2 cup of chicken broth, 2 tbsp of Dijon mustard, and minced garlic (about 5 cloves) in a small bowl. Add some dried rosemary and fennel to the wine sauce pour, mix them together.

Step 3: Slow-Roasting Process

Place the seasoned pork loin roast in a roasting pan with some olive oil at the bottom. Before roasting for one hour, brush some of the prepared wine sauce pour over the pork. After an hour has passed, remove the roasted pork loin from the oven and add another 1/4 cup of dry white wine on top. Continue cooking for another 20-30 minutes or until thickened and a meat thermometer reads at least 145°F.

Step 4: Let The Pork Rest

After removing from heat, let the roasted pork loin rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing.

Step 5: Make The Wine Garlic Fennel Sauce

While waiting for the pork loin to rest, now it’s time to work on the white wine garlic fennel sauce. Remove some of the fat from the remaining juices in the pan and pour them into a skillet over medium heat. Add in some sour cream (about 1 cup) and whisk until creamy. Then add minced garlic (about two cloves) and fennel seeds while stirring continuously for about two minutes or until fragrant.

Step 6: Serve and Enjoy

Finally, slice the roasted pork loin and serve it with the wine garlic sauce. This dish goes well with a side of mashed potatoes, steamed vegetables or even sautéed mushrooms.

There you have it- an easy and delicious white wine pork roast recipe that you can make right at home. Enjoy!

Substitutions and Variations

“A perfect pairing of white wine and tender pork loin for an unforgettable meal.”

Now, let’s talk about some possible substitutions and variations for this White Wine Pork Roast recipe.

First off, if you don’t have dry white wine on hand, you could try using a white wine vinegar or chicken broth instead. This will give the recipe a slightly different flavor profile, but it should still be delicious.

If you’re not a fan of pork loin or pork tenderloin, you could try making this recipe with other cuts of pork. A boneless pork chop or even a pork shoulder would work well with this recipe. Just keep in mind that the cook time may vary depending on the cut of meat you choose.

For those who are vegetarian or don’t eat pork, you could try substituting the meat with a meatless alternative like tofu or seitan. This could still work with the same seasoning and sauce, providing a tasty vegetarian dish.

If you want to add some extra flavor to your roasted pork dish, try experimenting with different herbs and spices. For example, fennel and rosemary can work well together to add an earthy taste to your dish.

Lastly, for those who want to create different sauces to pair with their roast pork, try creating a creamy mustard sauce or mushroom sauce instead of the typical white wine sauce. You can achieve these flavors by adding different ingredients such as sour cream or Dijon mustard. Apple sauce is also another popular pairing for pork dishes!

Serving and Pairing

“Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty with these delectable pork slices.”

Once your white wine pork roast is finished cooking and the wine sauce has been poured over, it’s time to dig in and savor the delicious, savory flavors. This mouth-watering main dish pairs perfectly with a variety of sides, from roasted potatoes and vegetables, to creamy mashed potatoes or polenta.

To truly enhance the flavor of the white wine sauce and tender pork meat, consider pairing this dish with a crisp white wine, such as a Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay. The bright notes of citrus and herbaceousness in these wines complement the zesty tang of the Dijon mustard and garlic rosemary flavors in your pork roast.

If you’re looking for something a bit bolder to pair with your white wine pork roast, a red blend, such as a Pinot Noir would be an excellent choice. The subtle fruitiness in the Pinot Noir helps bring out the natural sweetness in the pork loin.

Overall, no matter which wine you choose, it’s hard to go wrong when pairing it with such a flavorful and juicy cut of meat like white wine pork roast. Cheers to good food and great wines!

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

“A delicious pork roast swimming in a flavorful white wine sauce.”

One of the benefits of this white wine pork roast recipe is that it can be easily made ahead of time. In fact, I often prepare this dish earlier in the day and let it cook in a slow cooker on low heat for up to 6-8 hours.

If you’re planning to make it even further ahead of time, you can also freeze the fully cooked pork roast along with its wine sauce. Be sure to let it cool down to room temperature before packing it up and placing it inside an airtight container. This way, the pork will last up to three months in the freezer without drying out or losing its succulent flavor.

When ready to reheat, simply place the frozen pork roast into a preheated oven at 350°F for about 20-25 minutes. If you prefer reheating it in a microwave, it’s best to slice the pork and place it inside a microwave-safe dish for about 1-2 minutes per serving.

If you’re storing leftover white wine pork roast from a previous meal, you can keep it in the refrigerator for up to three days, tightly covered with plastic wrap or in an airtight container. To keep the meat moist during reheating, you may want to add some extra wine sauce or chicken broth into your serving dish before microwaving or oven warming.

Whether you’re making ahead or reheating leftovers, this white wine pork roast recipe still tastes as fresh and delicious as ever.

Tips for Perfect Results

“One bite and you’ll be transported to the vineyards of your dreams.”

If you want your white wine pork roast to be juicy and tender, these tips are for you. It’s better to use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature while cooking rather than cutting into the roast, which will release juices and make it dry. Letting the meat rest before slicing is also essential for keeping it moist. Additionally, adding sour cream to the wine sauce at the end of cooking enhances its flavor and texture.

To infuse more depth of flavor into the pork roast, try using garlic, fennel or rosemary in addition to salt and pepper for seasoning. You can also braise the pork shoulder for added tenderness, as it contains an adequate amount of fat that keeps it from drying out.

For a smoky undertone in your dish, marinate your pork overnight with dry white wine blended with mustard, garlic, and herbs. Another idea is to sear your pork roast in a pan before putting it into the slow cooker. The caramelization would add an extra layer of flavor to your dish and produce succulent meat.

When it comes to wine pairing, white wine pairs well with pork dishes containing creamy or citrusy sauces, while a red wine like Malbec complements assertive flavors like roasted garlic or mushroom sauce nicely. Also, consider what sides you will serve alongside your meal; you don’t want any strong seasoning that might overpower the taste of your meat for this recipe.

Finally, presentation matters! Slice your pork roast against the grain for maximum tenderness and serve the white wine garlic sauce alongside it or poured over the top. For an elegant touch, garnish with fresh herbs like parsley or thyme and serve on a platter with seasonal vegetables or perhaps mashed potatoes on the side.

Following these tips will guarantee perfect results every time with this delicious white wine pork roast recipe.


Now that you know how to make this delicious white wine pork roast recipe, let me address some commonly asked questions regarding the dish. These frequently asked questions will help you prepare the dish with ease, ensuring that the end product is a perfectly roasted pork infused with the flavors of dry white wine and aromatic herbs.

What white wine for pork roast?

When it comes to pairing white wine with food, pork roasted with flavorful herbs like Oregano or Marjoram calls for a delightful match with Condrieu made from Viognier grapes. If Condrieu is not available, one can try a fresh style of Chardonnay or Chenin Blanc from South Africa or the Loire Valley. For those who prefer red wine, a Pinot Noir from warmer climates is also a great option to explore.

Is white wine good for pork?

When selecting a wine to go with pork, it’s best to consider flavors that will complement the meat’s subtle sweetness. A full-bodied white wine or a fruity red wine can be great options.

What wine is best for cooking roast pork?

Pork roast is a highly adaptable meat that can be coupled well with both red and white wines. White wines that exude a fruity and spicy character blend perfectly with the pork’s distinctive flavor. A German Riesling with its captivating and crisp apple-like aroma has a winning impact when matched with pork roast. It’s better to avoid red wines with excessive tannins and instead opt for a subtly spicy fruity wine that will complement the dish’s charming taste.

Is red or white wine better to cook with pork?

Pairing white wine with light foods like fish and vegetables enhances their natural flavors, while red wine complements more substantial meats such as red meat and pork.

Bottom Line
