Picnic Pork Roast Marsala Recipe

Friday, May 13, 2022
This Picnic Pork Roast Marsala is fork-tender and with just a few ingredients one of the best tasting affordable meats you can make to feed a large family.

We love all kinds of pork roast and you can use a pork butt, or pork shoulder as well as this picnic cut of pork for this recipe.

This recipe requires garlic, marsala wine, and a few basic vegetables for an all-in-one-pan family meal.

While baking the meat and the juices are sealed in and garlic is inserted inside the roast by slicing small slits as it makes it way into the most delectable sliced pork you will ever sink your teeth in.

This delicious roast is perfect for weeknight dinners and leftovers are great in sandwiches or with the addition of barbecue sauce for a whole new meal using this roast the next day.

When I have a busy day ahead I just pop the roast in the slow cooker with all the ingredients and let this amazing appliance do its magic.

Adding a few vegetables to the large baking pan with the roast will be a complete meal and ready when you get home from your busy day.

Our family loves the roast with garlic mashed potatoes and corn on the cob, those are their favorite sides so I tend to make those more often to keep them happy.

Pork Roast Made Easy



The roast is a super easy and super flavorful plus for those who want a nonalcohol version just substitute apple juice.


If your family loves potatoes add some to the pan they will roast perfectly with this juice but you will need to add more liquid as it cooks so it won't burn or stick.


Try adding sweet potatoes, onions, or another vegetable you prefer in the pan for your side dishes also.


I have always loved the taste of Marsala but if you're not a big wine fan, just use beef broth.


You may also prefer making some Garlic Roasted Mashed Potatoes for a side dish.


I love using my slow cooker for this recipe also, and this is easily converted to add to the slow cooker for a cooking method.

  1. In a large 13 x 9 oil sprayed pan pour the balsamic vinegar into the bottom.
  2. Add the picnic roasted into the pan.
  3. Cut slits and stuff the holes randomly all over the roast with sliced garlic.

  5. Generously sprinkle with salt, pepper, granulated garlic, and herbs.

  11. Remove the foil off for browning for the last 1/2 hour you can take the foil off and turn up the heat to 425 degrees to brown the top.
