Chili Rubbed Pork Roast

"This is one of those recipes that once you try it, it becomes one of your all-time favorites. I gave this recipe to a chef at one of the Hotel/Casinos that I worked at. He actually laughed at me. Then one day, he approached me and told me that he'd tried it, and that it was one of the very best recipes that he's ever tried. So,ya never know! You may laugh too, at a couple of the ingredients. Just close your eyes and make it. You just may be in for a big SURPRISE!"

  1. Every once in awhile, we are fortunate to stumble on a showstopper dinner. Fluffster, this roast was awesome, and truely stopped the show. Simple to make with guest quality results. We followed the recipe to the letter, and will not change a thing the next dozen or two times we make this. Thank you so much for posting.
  2. Deeeelicious Fluffster! I seasoned the pork roast using seasoned salt and coarse black pepper, I also stuffed fresh garlic cloves in the roast, the drippings from the roast mixed with the glaze ingredients was so very good, thank you for another great recipe my family really enjoyed!


I would like to welcome you to my recipes. I have been with since 10/05. My beloved husband, Tom, passed away 3 years ago. My world stopped. It's taken me all this time to find my way back to life without him. I have been so blessed to have found my second, once in a lifetime. I've met an amazing man who is so good to me. We moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to Bullhead City, Az. in February, and we love it here. I have worked at Bally's and Paris hotel.casinos, in Las Vegas. I have seen some very famous entertainers, including Liza Minnelli, Penn and Teller, Ray Liotta, Dr. J (Julius Erving), Frank Sinatra and his wife Barbara Marx. and many, many more. Cooking is my passion, and I am slowly, but surely beginning to venture into the world of baking. To me, cooking is so much easier because baking is so much more exact. I love to make Italian and Mexican food the best, followed by Chinese and last, but by far the least, good old American food! How can you beat chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy?? I love to find several recipes and put my own spin on them and create a new recipe.
