Parmesan Roast Pork is a well-seasoned, quick and easy main dish recipe. Keep the ingredients on hand for a fast last-minute dinner. If you'd rather grill your roast pork, see Grilled Parmesan Pork Loin. Make sure you have a center cut boneless roast no larger than 2 pounds. The bone-in or tied types take much longer to cook.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes

Yield: 8 servings


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 2 tablespoons chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 (2-3 pound) boneless center cut pork loin roast
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


To roast the pork: preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In small bowl, combine olive oil, thyme, chicken broth, salt, and pepper. Roll pork in this mixture, then roll in both types of Parmesan cheese to coat.

Place pork on a roasting pan and sprinkle with any remaining cheese. Roast, uncovered, for 40-50 minutes until internal meat thermometer registers 155 degrees F. Remove pork from pan, cover, and let stand 10 minutes before slicing.

I would make this again, Guest Julie

My whole family enjoyed this recipe and it was so easy. I used grated romano, instead of parmesan and I didn't have any chicken broth on hand, so I just used a little water. The cheese made a nice crispy crust on the outside of the pork roast.
