  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 2lb pork loins (or a 2lb pork roast - I use the loins, Char used a roast)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (I use sea salt - it's more flavorful)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Large ziplock bag

Directions

  • Blend the spices in a small bowl.
  • Cut 5 deep slits across the meat.
  • Stuff some of the spice blend into each slit.
  • Rub the rest of the spice blend into the meat.
  • Put the meat into the ziplock and refrigerate overnight.
  • In a greased pan, bake uncovered at 325 degrees until thermometer reads 160-170 degrees.
  • Serve with mashed potatoes, sauerkraut and whatever else sounds good. It goes very well with a chilled Chardonnay.

Notes

My mother-in-law used to make this roast every New Year's Day and it was delicious. Unfortunately, she recently passed away...but I guess that makes these kind of recipes even more special to us.
