Pot roast is one of those recipes that’s been around forever. You mama probably cooked a mean pot roast, and so did your grandma! Are you wondering how they got that amazing taste by just throwing some meat, and veggies in a slow cooker? I’ve got the low down!

The Solar Oven Method for Cooking Pot Roast

My pot roast cooked beautifully in the solar oven. I’m so happy with this method of cooking. I can’t wait until next summer. I’m going to wear this thing out! I love to cook pot roast. It ‘s a simple dinner with all the things I love.

I basically used the same recipe I use to cook it in my slow cooker. Although the time may vary in the solar oven. It will take around 5-6 hours. Try to pick a day that’s not cloudy. Clouds will drop the temperature in the oven. Also, use a baking rack to elevate the pan. Heat rises, and it’s better for heat circulation.

Pot Roast Solar Oven Recipe

Yield: 1
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 5 hours
Resting Time: 3 minutes
Total Time: 5 hours 23 minutes

Remember to watch the sun as you cook in your solar oven and adjust the oven as necessary. You want the oven to always be directly in the sun!

Ingredients

  • 2 lb. Pork Loin (whole – You can buy a pre-seasoned one if you like)
  • 4-5 cups Beef Broth
  • 5-6 Carrots (chopped)
  • 3 stalks Celery (chopped)
  • 1-2 Onions (chopped)
  • 4 Garlic Cloves (chopped)
  • 1.5 lbs. Potatoes (chopped bite-size)
  • 1 Pinch pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce

Instructions

  1. Preheat your solar oven.
  2. Place pork loin fatty side up, into a large stock pan.
  3. Add broth and veggies evenly around the pork loin.
  4. Add salt, pepper, and Worcestershire Sauce.
  5. Place the lid on the pan.
  6. Using oven mitts, place the pan in the solar oven. Make sure it is sitting on a baking rack, it must be elevated!
  7. Remember to place the thermometer inside the oven also!
  8. Try not to open the oven very much, as that will decrease the temperature.
  9. Set a timer for 30 -45 minutes to check on the oven. The sun will move and you will need to adjust the direction of the oven. Also, keep an eye on the temperature.
  10. After 4-5 hours check the internal temperature of the meat. FoodSafety.Org says 145ºF and let rest for 3 minutes for roasts. 
  11. Once you reach the desired temperature, use your oven mitts, and carefully take the pan out of the oven. Remember the oven is HOT!
  12. I like to slice the roast thin and then place it nicely back into the pan.
  13. It’s ready to serve. Enjoy!

Solar Ovens to Choose From | Just Two Recommendations!

I have a SunFlair Solar Oven, and I love how portable it is. I’ve always wanted an All American solar oven too, just to try it. I’ve always heard amazing things about their product though. So I’m pretty sure it’s also a great option. However, it’s way more expensive!

Check The Temperature!

Don’t forget to check the internal temperature of the meat. When cooking a large piece of meat, it’s very important to make sure you bring it up to temperature in order to kill off some of those germs! FoodSafety.Org says 145ºF and let rest for 3 minutes for roasts. I have a digital thermometer that I love but you can also get one of those handy dandy super tech thermometers that can link to your phone (probably with the help of an app, IDK). Those are pretty cool, but…a little on the expensive side.

A downside I’ve seen using a solar oven is that I have had so many days that were overcast, rainy, cloudy, and/or storming. Ugg! How many days is the weatherman going to keep me from my new cooking tool? The first sunny day came in a couple of weeks even though the forecast called for cloudy and possible rain (ALL WEEK), it was sunny.

I marched outside and preheated my oven. Then I got to work in the kitchen. I was excited that I finally got to use my solar oven again! As I was cutting up veggies, I thought oh I’ll have dinner all set and don’t even have to worry about doing it later. How nice!
