OUTSTANDING PORK ROAST ~ REALLY GREAT TASTING! This was so easy to prepare! I admit to using 2 large garlic cloves, but then we really love garlic ~ I'd much rather kiss garlic lips than cigarette lips! Thanks, much, for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the Gimme 5 Tag Game]

Made this last night with a 3 pound roast (took about 2 hours) - it turned out delicious with carrots, potatoes and fennel roasted along with it...

Simple and delish.....just like my grandmother used to make. The only change I made was to use onion soup mix instead of beef (since that is what grandma used). I made a gravy with with the juice - just added some water & flour.
