Ingredients

  • 4.5- pound boneless pork loin
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 10 garlic cloves peeled
  • 5 cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spray the inside of a large, oven-safe Dutch oven with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Sprinkle a few of the onions in the bottom of the pot followed by a few garlic cloves.
  4. Place the pork on top of the onions, and sprinkle remaining onions and garlic around the pork.
  5. Whisk together the stock and flour, and pour it over the pork without completely submerging it.
  6. Mix the seasonings, and liberally sprinkle them over the top of the pork.
  7. Cover the pot with foil and place the lid on it.
  8. Bake for 3.5 hours and remove from the oven.
  9. Stir the gravy, and place back in the oven. Cook for 30 more minutes or until the top is nicely browned.
  10. Remove from the oven and carefully transfer the pork to a serving platter. I used turkey lifters to do this so I could get it out in one piece.
  11. At this point, you can either slice or shred the pork. You could even just leave it in the pot if you don't need it to look "fancy".
  12. Serve the gravy drizzled over the top or on the side. If desired, you could sprinkle some freshly chopped Italian parsley on top.
