I started cooking this roast a few seasons ago and it is such a big hit at Thanksgiving, I actually crave it!
I do not remember where I found this recipe, however it is now part of my recipe book with recipes that I treasure. What I love about this dish is the simplicity of it, there is really not a lot of ingredients, and it cooks under two hours. Who can ask for anything more, especially when you have so many things to cook for the holiday.
-2 tablespoons and 3/4 teaspoon fresh rosemary
-1 tablespoon garlic salt
-3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
-1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
-4-1/2 pounds boneless pork lion roast
That is it for the ingredients, simple, right?
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C)
2) In a large. plastic rectangular container with a top, mix rosemary, garlic, salt, thyme & pepper. Place pork roast in the plastic container, seal with top. and toss & turn until completely covering with the garlic salt mixture. I let it sit in the refrigerator for about an hour, then I transfer it to a medium baking dish.
3)Cook the roast for one hour in the preheated oven, or to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F (70 degrees C)
According to my notes this has been adjusted to serve 9 people, which is about two slices per person.
