Now, let us dive into the exciting part of this article. Here is the step-by-step guide on how to make an exceptional 1 Cup of Coffee Pork Roast Recipe.

Step 1: Preparing the Pork Roast

First things first, preheat your oven to 300 degrees F.

While waiting for the oven to heat up, take a 3 lb pork roast trimmed of fat, and season it generously with a coffee rub mix made of 1 tbsp ground coffee, 1 tbsp brown sugar, and 2 tsp chili powder. Don’t forget to add in some salt and pepper to taste.

Step 2: Searing the Sides

Next, heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil over medium-high heat in a large frying pan. Once it’s hot enough, sear all sides of the pork roast until nicely browned.

Step 3: Combining the Ingredients

To make the flavor even more remarkable, combine these ingredients in a small bowl: 1 cup soy sauce, 1 cup coffee [2 bay leaves], 3 cloves garlic, and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Stir everything together until mixed well.

Step 4: Roasting Time

Place the seared pork roast in a roasting pan that has at least two inches of water at the bottom. Add in two bay leaves to enhance its aroma. Pour in the sauce mixture that you’ve created earlier on top of it.

Cover the roasting pan with aluminum foil before putting it in the preheated oven. Let it cook for about four hours, or until the pork is tender enough for you to pull apart using a fork.

Once done cooking, remove from the oven and let it cool down for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Substitutions and Variations

“Get your morning coffee fix and dinner sorted in one delicious dish”

With any recipe, there is always room for variations and substitutions to suit your tastes and dietary needs. Here are some ideas to enhance your 1 Cup of Coffee Pork Roast Recipe:

– Pork Roast: If you prefer leaner meat, you can make this recipe with a pork loin instead of a pork shoulder. You can also use a boneless rib roast or even try it with beef roast.

– Coffee: For a stronger coffee flavor, use a darker roast. You can also substitute coffee beans for ground coffee, but make sure to grind them before using.

– Soy Sauce: If you don’t have soy sauce, you can use Worcestershire sauce, fish sauce or coconut amino as an alternative.

– Brown Sugar: Maple syrup or honey can be substituted for the sugar to add a different flavor profile to the recipe.

– Spices: You can add other spices such as cumin, coriander or chili powder for more depth of flavor.

– Slow Cooker: For an effortless version of this recipe, put all ingredients into a slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4-5 hours.

No matter how you decide to tailor the dish, the choice of substitution is entirely yours. Be creative and see what flavors excite your palate. Just keep in mind that the time and temperature might need adjustment based on the changes made in the recipe.

Serving and Pairing

“The secret ingredient to this savory pork roast? You guessed it, coffee!”

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a well-brewed cup of coffee can elevate any meal to the next level. And there’s no better way to explore the depths of coffee’s potential than with this stunning coffee pork roast recipe.

Once you have perfected your 1 cup coffee pork roast, it’s important to serve it in a way that complements its flavors and textures. I suggest placing the roast on a large platter, surrounded by onions caramelized in soy sauce, oregano, and garlic. The result is a gorgeous spread of aromas and flavors that will dazzle your taste buds.

For a more substantial meal, consider pairing your 1 cup coffee pork roast with roasted vegetables or greens. I recommend roasted carrots or potatoes – their sweet, earthy flavors complement the rich flavors of the pork beautifully. You can also serve your pork roast with leafy greens or a simple salad to balance out the meat’s richness.

And what about drinks? Well, since we’re already using coffee in our recipe, why not stick with the theme throughout the entire meal? A cup of strong brewed coffee would be an excellent choice. If you prefer something stronger, try pairing your pork roast with a bourbon cocktail infused with a touch of freshly ground coffee.

In short, try to strike a balance between hearty and delicate flavors when choosing sides for your dish, and don’t be afraid to experiment with different combinations! With this recipe and its many variations, you have all the tools you need to create a winning meal that will be savored by all.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

“Wake up and smell the pork roast, enhanced with the rich aroma of coffee”

Now, perhaps you find yourself with some leftover coffee pork roast, or maybe you simply want to prepare it in advance for a special occasion. In either case, this recipe is great for making ahead of time and storing for later.

To make ahead, simply follow the recipe instructions up until the cook time (step 5). Once you have seared the pork roast on all sides and added it to the roasting pan, cover it with aluminum foil and refrigerate for up to two days.

When ready to cook, take the roast out of the refrigerator at least one hour prior to cooking in order to bring it to room temperature. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit before placing the roast into the oven. If necessary, add more broth or water into the bottom of the pan before reheating.

Storing leftover pork roast is easy – simply place any uneaten portions into an airtight container in the fridge. The pork will keep well for up to 3-4 days.

Reheating leftover pork roast is a cinch too. You can reheat slices of pork roast in the microwave, oven or on the stovetop. To reheat in the oven, preheat oven at 375°F and place sliced pork roast in baking dish with 1/2 cup chicken broth or gravy for moisture. Cover with foil and warm them up for about 10-15 minutes until heated through.

This make-ahead feature of this recipe makes it a wonderful addition to any meal prep routine or as an easy weeknight dinner option. Enjoy!

Tips for Perfect Results

“Coffee in your cup and coffee in your roast, who needs anything else?”

Are you ready to make the perfect coffee pork roast? Here are some tips that will help you to achieve the best results and impress everyone at your dinner table.

Firstly, when making a rub with ground coffee make sure to choose high-quality beans. Dark roast coffee will work better as it provides a more robust flavor.

It’s crucial to remove any excess fat from the meat before cooking. This process will not only reduce calories but also intensify the flavor of the dish. Trim off any visible fat from the pork roast to obtain tender and juicy meat.

For optimal results, allow time for your pork roast to absorb the rub’s flavors. Once you have rubbed your pork roast with coffee and other seasonings, let it sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Overnight is even better! This technique results in a crusty exterior, delectable aroma and rich taste.

One common problem when cooking pork roast is dryness. To avoid this, don’t forget to baste your meat regularly. You can also add a little bit of water to the bottom of your roasting pan before putting it in the oven – this step increases moist heat and prevents dryness.

To cut down cook time significantly, consider slicing your pork loin into smaller pieces before applying the rub. This technique reduces cook time by half or more, which is ideal when you’re short on time.

Lastly, don’t underestimate the importance of quality ingredients like soy sauce or brown sugar. Using high-quality ingredients can create a great depth of flavor that will make all the difference in this recipe.

By following these tips and recommendations, you’ll be able to create a delicious coffee pork roast every time that will leave your guests craving for more!


Now that you’re equipped with all the necessary information for making a cup of coffee pork roast, it’s time to address some common questions about this recipe. Here are some frequently asked questions and their answers to help you navigate any hurdles that may arise as you prepare this delectable dish.

How long does it take to cook a pork roast?

Hey there, to make a mouthwatering roast, let’s start by preheating the oven to 180°C. Next, gently sear the meat in a sizzling pan to enhance its flavors. Then, pop it into the oven and let it cook for 45 minutes per kg. This will ensure that it’s cooked to perfection with a juicy and succulent texture. Once it’s done, let it rest for a few minutes to allow the juices to settle, and then you’re ready to indulge in a scrumptious meal!

How to get the best crackle on pork roast?

To achieve that prized crunchy crackling, high heat is essential. As suggested by Valli Little, an esteemed culinary expert, a blazing oven between 220°C to 240°C for 20-30 minutes is ideal. Following that, it’s recommended to lower the temperature to a range of 160°C to 180°C. Cook the pork until it is just pale white with a hint of pink for optimal flavor.

Do you put water on bottom of pan when cooking pork roast?

To cook a perfect pork roast, you need to use a large roasting pan and preheat the oven to the required temperature. Once you have seasoned the pork to your liking and placed it in the pan, pour 1 cup of water into the bottom of the pan. It’s crucial to ensure the fat side of the roast is facing upwards in the roasting pan before you place it in the oven. Bake the pork roast for 4-5 hours or until it reaches your desired tenderness. Remember to add water to the pan during the cooking time to prevent burning on the bottom of the pan. In my experience, I recommend cooking the pork for the full 5 hours for a tender, pull-apart pork roast.

What size pork roast for 2 people?

The serving size for a boneless pork loin primarily relies on the individual’s appetite. Typically, a 2lb pork loin is adequate to satisfy 2-4 individuals, while a 4lb sized cut will comfortably feed up to 6-8 people. If uncertain about the amount to cook, it is advisable to make a little extra rather than insufficient and enjoy the leftover roast throughout the week.

Bottom Line

In conclusion, the 1 Cup of Coffee Pork Roast Recipe is the perfect dish for a comforting family meal or a dinner party with friends. With its unique combination of flavors and easy-to-follow instructions, this recipe is sure to impress even the most discerning palates.
