This is delicious, especially with cooked apples or applesauce. Leftovers make great sandwiches!

I found this recipe in The Costco Connection this month and gave it a try today. The rub was mixed together and sprinkled over a cookie sheet. The roast was actually rolled in the rub and completely coated. The meat was allowed to stand about 30 minutes before turning on the oven. Once the oven preheated as directed the meat was placed in the oven and roasted. The rub makes a beautifully delicious crust. This was served with Recipe #454703 and Recipe #228772. Something I will save to make again. Made for It's Tapped - Celebrate The Diabetic Oktoberfest! in the Diabetic Forum.

Very nice rub! I didn't have time to let it sit, but roasted the pork right after applying the rub. It still was very flavorful. Too much pepper for me, but I am a lightweight when it comes to pepper and my husband loved it. Thanks, Carole in Orlando

Good easy rub. The whole family enjoyed since it wasn't too spicy. Some rubs my children won't eat... Thanks for sharing.
