Classic Tender Pork Roast

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by The Mad Slovak

I have made this recipe countless times, and I (and others) really like it. I can't recall where it came from, but it has been in my recipe file for several years. It combines just the right amount of seasonings that compliment the flavor of the roast. Hope you enjoy!

Great combination of flavors. Cooking time was perfect. We will be having this again, but I will double the sauce next time because we all wanted more! Made for Fall 2012 PAC game.
