This one is my old stand-by when company comes over. It’s easy, elegant and delicious. I never have to worry whether or not it will turn out or if folks will like it. If they are pork eaters, they will love this. The flavors are not Bam! in your face, but nonetheless, they make themselves known.
Your house will smell amazing while this roasts! I usually do not have to worry about the leftovers because they are so good, my family eats them while standing in front of the open fridge. Slices of this roast make great sandwiches.
