Why I Love This Recipe

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.

Ingredients You'll Need

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


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.
