Savory Grilled Pork Roast

Savory Grilled Pork Roast is so easy to prepare and tastes so good. The marinade takes just a few minutes to prepare; set the pork roast to marinate in the morning and grill it for dinner that night.  While this recipe calls for one two-to-three-pound boneless pork roast, you could easily double the recipe to accommodate a larger pork roast for a party.  Savory Grilled Pork Roast is great served with Brussels Sprouts with Shallots and Oyster Sauce for an elegant dinner.

  • ½ Tb granulated Sugar
  • ½ Tb coarsely-ground Black Pepper
  • ½ Tb good-quality dry Mustard powder
  • 1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper flakes
  • 1 Tb ground Fennel seeds
  • 1 Tb ground Sage leaves
  • 1 Tb dried Rosemary leaves or 1 ½ Tbs minced fresh Rosemary leaves
  • 1 Tb Onion powder
  • 1 ½ Tbs minced Garlic
  • 1 ½ Tbs crushed Ginger
  • 3 Tbs Soy Sauce

Savory Grilled Pork Roast


  1. Combine the dry seasonings (sea salt through onion powder) in a deep bowl.
  2. Add the minced garlic, crushed ginger, soy sauce, vinegar, red wine and oil to the bowl and whisk the marinade together.
  3. Pour some of the marinade into a container, add the pork loin roast and balance of the marinade to the container, cover and marinate the pork for 8 hours.
  4. Heat the grill on high; when you can hold your hand 1-inch from the grill surface for 5 seconds before it is too hot, the grill is ready.
  5. Place the pork roast on the grill and sear it on all sides, about 3 minutes per side.
  6. Turn half the grill’s burners off and move the pork roast to that area of the grill, leaving the remaining burners on high. Close the grill and continue to cook the pork roast using indirect heat for about 20 minutes.  When the internal temperature has reached 145 F per a meat thermometer, remove the pork from the grill.
  7. Place the pork roast on a cutting board, loosely cover it with a foil tent and allow it to rest for 10-to-15 minutes prior to slicing it.
