I made this once before and forgot to rate it. It was a 5 star recipe then as it is now. It's cold and rainy here today, and although spring is here, I'm in the mood for comfort food and something slow cooking. This is an excellent roast. The house smells so good all afternoon, and it makes yummy sandwiches the next day. I'm also baking apples so the house should really smell great.

Wonderful flavor, moist, easy, and delicious. I loved being able to smell the delicious herbs all afternoon. We all came to the table with great expectations and were not disappointed. Thanks for sharing this keeper.

This recipe made a wonderful pork roast. I used sage and rosemary fresh from my garden along with the garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil. I didn't have any fennel and I forgot to put the wine in. The aroma while cooking was wonderful. I had a small pork roast for two and it only took 3 hours to cook. This will definitely be a recipe I will be using again and again. Thanks for submitting this.

This makes a truly wonderful roast! I followed the instructions exactly, except that the roast was completely frozen and so it took 8 hours. Thankyou for the ultimate busy day recipe!

OMG!!!This roast is very similar to a porketta..Nicely seasoned all thru..I used a 4.5 pork loin bone- in roast.I didnt have fresh herbs so used 1 1/2 Tblsp each of sage and rosemary. I made 2 "long slits all across length of roast and used 1 1/2 tsp seasoned paste in each slit,used leftover paste for outside rub.It was a juicy and tender inside with a nice crisy outside .My DH says he wants to have this again,so keep the recipe close at hand.. Leftover roast makes great cold sandwiches.With hard rolls,butter and mustard. UMmmmm.Alan, all your recipes Ive tried so far have been wonderful..I want to make your BD cake soon..Thank U....Susan

Excellent and easy. Turns out really moist and very good. I thought it might dry out, baking it so long, but it wasn't at all. It's so easy just to prepare and stick it in the oven for 6 hours!
