Load up your favorite roasting pan with vegetables, pork, and seasonings, and sit back and relax. The aromas emanating from the kitchen will knock your socks off. This meal gives you a slow-cooked taste without having to wait all day. Or, for an even more hands-off meal, try the slow cooker version below.
Heat the oven to 400°F.
Arrange the potatoes, onion, celery, and carrots in a large roasting pan. Pour the broth and sherry over them. Season the pork all over with salt and pepper and sprinkle with the sage and garlic-and-herb seasoning. Place the pork on top of the vegetables and sprinkle with the Parmesan (press the cheese into the meat). Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 160°F, about 45 minutes.
Let the pork rest for 10 minutes, then cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices and serve with the vegetables and brothy sauce.
Break out the slow cooker: Follow the directions above, except arranging the ingredients in a large slow cooker instead of a roasting pan. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours or HIGH for 3 to 4 hours.
