Italian Pork Pot Roast

Ingredients
2
tablespoons fennel seed, crushed
2
tablespoons dried parsley, crushed
4
teaspoons dried Italian seasoning, crushed
1 1/2
teaspoons garlic salt
1
teaspoon ground black pepper
3
pounds boneless pork shoulder roast
1
tablespoon cooking oil
3/4
cup water
5
carrots, quartered
6
small potatoes, peeled (about 1-1/2 pounds)
1
large fennel bulb, trimmed and cut into wedges
1/2
cup cold water
1/4
cup instant flour (such as Wondra)

Directions

  1. In a small bowl combine fennel seed, parsley, Italian seasoning, garlic salt, and pepper; set aside. Untie pork roast and unroll. Trim fat. Rub with seasoning mixture. Retie roast.
  2. In a Dutch oven or large pot heat oil. Brown pork roast slowly on all sides. Drain fat. Pour the 3/4 water over meat. Roast, uncovered, in a 325 degrees F oven for 1-1/2 hours. Arrange vegetables around roast. Cover and roast for 50 to 60 minutes more or until vegetables and meat are tender, adding additional water, if necessary. Transfer meat to a serving platter; cover with foil. Let stand for 15 minutes. Remove strings and carve. Using a slotted spoon, transfer vegetables to a serving bowl; keep warm.
  3. For gravy, skim fat from pan juices; strain juices, if desired. Add water to juices, if necessary, to make 1-1/2 cups. Cook pan juices in Dutch oven or large pot over medium-high heat until bubbly. Combine the 1/2 cup cold water and the flour; stir until smooth. Gradually add to the hot pan juices, whisking until smooth and bubbly. Cook and stir 1 minute more. Serve with roast.
