Oven Roasted Pork and Potatoes--Greek Style

My husband surprised me with half a pig!  Of course I had to make this. :D

Oven Roasted Pork and Potatoes
2 batches of the marinade from my Greek Rotisserie Chicken recipe, separated**
Pork Roast, thawed
Potatoes (peeled, cut up, cover with cold water and set aside)
4 cloves of garlic (cut into fours, lengthwise, and sprinkled with salt and pepper, set aside) 

This recipe is so tasty and so other words, my favourite kind of recipe!  Place the pork roast in a pan and cut small slits into the pork and insert the garlic pieces. Pour one batch of the marinade over top, cover the pan with plastic wrap, and place it the refrigerator for about two hours. 

Preheat the oven to broil and place your uncovered pan on the top rack.  Broil the pork until golden and then turn the pork over and pour half of the remaining marinade on top. Once this side has broiled, remove the pan from the oven and set the oven to 350 degrees. Drain the potatoes and pour the remaining half of the marinade over top and stir. Place the potatoes into the pan around the pork, pour the remaining marinade from the potatoes over top the pork, add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water (depending upon the size of your pan), and cover the pan with foil.  Bake at 350 degrees on the middle rack for about 1 hour and then reduce the temperature to 250 degrees and bake until done. Cook time will depend upon size of roast and oven temperature.  I use a meat thermometer to check for doneness (internal temperature of 145F).

**My 'roast', (I'm using the term loosely, it was a quarter of a pig!), was about 15 pounds so I used two batches of the marinade, if you have a smaller roast and a few potatoes, one batch, will do. :D
