Juicy Oven-Baked Pork Roast Recipe


1. Pork roast

  • 1 kg pork roast
  • 6 medium potatoes
  • 1 large white onion

2. Marinade

  • 250 ml apple cider vinegar
  • 100 ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 50 ml water
  • 4 tablespoons Chilean chili paste
  • 3 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  1. On a clean cutting board, trim excess fat from the pork roast using a sharp knife. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine apple cider vinegar, olive oil, water, Chilean chili paste, oregano, paprika, garlic, salt, and pepper. Stir to mix, immerse the meat, ensuring even coating. Cover with plastic wrap and let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes (ideally overnight).
  3. Wash and chop the potatoes into wedges. Place them on a tray, add a drizzle of olive oil, oregano, salt, and pepper to taste. Toss with clean hands to coat evenly and set aside.
  4. Cut the onion into 4 parts and distribute the slices to form a bed on a large baking tray. Place the marinated pork roast on top and arrange the potatoes around it.
  5. Bake the pork roast in a preheated oven at 180°C (356°F) for about 90 minutes. Baste the meat with its own juices every 30 minutes to prevent drying. Remove from the oven and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  6. Serve the juicy pork roast immediately, accompanied by roasted potatoes and onion to taste. Optionally, serve with a portion of fluffy rice and pair it with a glass of Chilean red wine.
