Recipe by Babybuttons

This is my Dad's specialty when it comes to cooking, (meaning he is only good at a few things). He got this recipe out of our local newspaper many, many years ago and over the years his had tweaked around with it and has perfected it his way. So I'll share it will you and I hope you all enjoy it like we do.

I made this for a dinner party a few weeks ago. None of our guests had ever had it and it turned out so good! We used all pork and marinated it overnite with onions and garlic in a ziploc bag. Excellent and TENDER!!
