This is definitely a recipe to remember. And it's simple enough for anyone to memorize. The pork smelled wonderful when it was roasting, tasted spectacular, and is elegant enough for very picky guests. Thank you for including a temperature for judging doneness. I found it useful. And thank you for sharing this delicious pork recipe with us.
