Pork roast question

I am making a boneless pork loin roast for dinner. I saw a recipe in the pork forum by Constance. I do not see Constance online right now, so my question is this....She mentions covering the roast with oil, onion soup mix, black pepper. I usually brown my roasts before baking. Do you all brown your roasts or just bake without browning?

I always brown the pork first. It only adds flavor, how can that be bad?

Thanks for you quick reply Andy! That was my thought as well. Time to get that roast browned and into the oven.

I season it and roast it without browning.

I've always browned mine - and quite brown too. Saves some cooking time in the oven and I like mine on the pinkish side too.

You do not have to brown first. But you can turn temps up high for the first 20 minutes, and then turning down. It will have the same affect as browning.

I've never bothered browing first... My roasts always get plenty carmelized on the outside just from cooking to doneness.
