My Lovely Pork Roast (Rib Tip)

"Made this for some friends this weekend and it was delicious! I used the rib tip because the bone gives it so much flavor and moisture, but the garnishing can be used on any pork roast. Enjoy!"

  1. I did everything as written, except I only had dried thyme and I also added a bit of ground sage. The roast was juicy and delicious, easy to prepare. The times listed in the recipe are right on. I did not have a chance to marinate the meat the full 5 hours, so I am looking forward to the next time I make this recipe with the overnight marination. Thanks for posting
