Loved this one! I added 1/4 c of white vinegar for extra tang and cooked mine on the grill. Best pork roast I've made. Thank you!

Wonderfully moist and flavorful. Mt family isn't a port roast fan, but this recipe won them over. When I make this, again, I'll go on the lower measure of red pepper flakes as it really gives it quite a "wallop" of hot

My family loves this recipe. It's become a favorite that I try to make once a month. I've followed it just as it's written with the exception of the anise seed, which I substitute with fennel. LOVE IT!
