Tuscan Pork Roast

"I tried this at a local grocery store. It was moist and tasty. I think this would work in the crockpot as well, and plan to try to do that."

  1. this is the first thing I made in my NEW crockpot, and boy, what a great choice!!! this was incredibly tender and the flavor combinations were just so, so good. I added a bit of garlic powder and and used fresh rosemary from our garden, and it was fabuloso!!!!
  2. Very,very good! Internal temp of 165 makes the loin so moist and tender. And when you get a piece of the rosemary in a bite, oh it's heavenly! I used my food processor and it did not make a paste per say. I would stop it and scrape down the sides. When it came to applying the paste to the loin I put a small plastic baggie on my hand. I did not want to smell like garlic at the show tonight. I'm so glad I found Beverly in the Orphanage of the *PAC Fall 2007* game. Great recipe Beverly and I'll be making it again.


<p>I am a mother of 5 children who certainly keep me busy: In my free time I love to read and to cook for my family. I just wish sometimes they weren't so picky... I have a DBF of 7 yrs who is a worse picky eater than the kids. I have been a member of zaar since 2002, but have only in the past 2 years been coming here daily. I am now addicted to this site!! My son comments that I spend so much time looking at recipes that I will never be able to make them all...so whats the point: I love making new recipes, so we rarely have the same thing twice, too often. <br /><img src=&lt;a href= alt= />http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg alt= /&gt; <br /><img src=&lt;a href= alt= />http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /&gt; <br /><br /><img src=&lt;a href= alt= />http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /&gt;</p>
