Just as with beef, there are plenty of cuts of pork that are suitable for roasting, but I usually buy the one or two cuts that are the easiest to find and the fastest to prepare.

My most favorite pork roast is center-cut boneless loin. It is very lean, easy to slice, and relatively quick to prepare. The average cooking time is between 1¾ and 2 hours. A juicier, but fatter, roast is the butt or blade end boneless loin, which means it is cut from the shoulder end of the loin.
