The classic mix of herbs topping this roast add a flavor to the pork that my husband just loves. It’s his favorite dish! —Jean Harris, Central Point, Oregon

    This rub makes this roast absolutely outstanding! I trusted my gut and reduced the cooking time, and the roast was easily done at the 1 hour 15 minute mark. We didn't care for the gravy - as the sugar in the rub made it way too sweet for our liking. However, the roast was spectacular and I will use this recipe again for the meat.

    Very tasty rub and subsequent sauce. I think 2 hours was a bit too long for the roast I used. I will monitor temperature next time. I would definitely recommend.

    This recipe has gone well when prepared for large fund raiser banquets. It's certainly not hard to prepare!

    My husband loved it and he hates when I make roasts. I will have to make again

    My family, who were never fans of pork roast, absolutely love this recipe. The brown sugar takes the taste of pork to a whole new level.

    My husband went nuts for this. Added carrots and potatoes around the roast.
