  1. Cut slits all over the pork roast, and insert a halved garlic clove in each hole.
  2. Place the roast in a large heavy-duty ziploc bag, or a large glass bowl.
  3. Add in the Italian salad dressing and wine (or cider vinegar).
  4. Turn bag to mix and coat the roast.
  5. Seal and refrigerate for 24 hours.
  6. When ready to cook, remove the roast and drain the marinade.
  7. Set oven to 325°F, and grease a shallow roasting pan (large enough to hold the roast).
  8. Place the roast in baking dish and season with seasoning salt and pepper.
  9. Let the uncooked pork roast sit out at room temperature for about 45 minutes to 1 hour before placing in the oven to roast (this is important!).
  10. Bake uncovered for about 2 hours, or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees.
  11. Meanwhile prepare the mustard glaze: combine the apricot preserves, mustard, brown sugar and butter; brush over roast during the last 20-30 minutes of baking.
  12. Delicious!
