    Dear all,

    I have a 7 lb. pork cuisine roast that I am stuffing.  It is not tied, but rather in 2 long pieces.  I know that the internal temperature must be 165 degrees for pork.  But I am not sure how long it will take to cook.  I've done a similar 4 lb. roast that was tied, which I cooked at 400 degrees for one hour, turned the oven off, and let it sit for 20 minutes.  It turned out perfect.

    Can anyone opine on how I should adjust the cooking time and temperature (if at all) for my 7 lb. roast?  I've asked several butchers and they have been of no help thus far.

    Thanks!

    Not sure what a pork cuisine roast is.  From what you describe it sounds like 2 tenderloin strips.  Very tender cut of meat, but will be like rubber if you cook it to 165.  For this cut I sear each piece on the outside then stick in the oven at 350 until it reaches internal 145F.  It shouldn't take more than 30min.  Take it out, cover and rest it for 10-15min and it will reach 150.  Serve with a gravy.

    I agree with the 145, even if it is loin going past 145 will dry it out.
