DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees farenheit.
  • Sprinkle pork roast with salt and pepper and place on a rack in a roasting pan.
  • Roast for two hours or until temperature of center of pork registers 150-160 degrees (145 degrees is the new "safe" temp for pork.).
  • Melt butter over roast while it is still in the roasting pan.
  • Remove roast from pan, saving the drippings and juice.
  • Add Au Jus mix and water to drippings and cook according to directions on package.
  • Place bread in the oven (which has been turned off just after the roast is done) and let it crisp a bit. The heat will help to melt the cheese better than just the heat of the meat will.
  • Let roast cool for about 10 minutes, then slice thinly.
  • Pile pork and cheese on bread while meat is still hot.
  • Serve with Au Jus dipping gravy on the side and LOTS o' napkins.
