    Sydney Mike's Note:

    This recipe has been in my files for years, & I fall back on it everytime I want to get back to a basic pork roast! I usually serve it with a homemade apple sauce or a cranberry sauce, but the last time around I made Zaar chef JanetC-KY's Spiced Apple and Raisin Sauce for a nice-tasting raisin sauce!

      Awesome recipe. I think this will now be my go to recipe for a pork roast. I used a smaller roast maybe 2 pounds or a bit larger but kept the seasonings at the written amount because that's how I roll! :) Enjoyed by all and leftovers gone the next day.

      Thank you Syd for another wonderful recipe. This was an awesome pork roast. Quick and easy to make resulting in a moist, tender, juicy, pork. The rub was great, so much depth of flavor, while not being overwhelming. We enjoyed the pork served with mashed potatoes, peas and homemade apple sauce. It was also enjoyed the next day in sandwiches. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely recipe.
