Rosemary Pork Roast

Tender and full of flavor, this lovely roast is an impressive main dish for a Christmas dinner or any special occasion. The aroma as the roast is baking, enhanced by rosemary and garlic, is mouthwatering. While it is in the oven I decorate my dining room table.—

    Very dry even though I was careful to not overcook the loin.

    This is a standby in our household. Leftovers make wonderful sandwiches!

    This pork roast is absolutely wonderful! The flavor is amazing. I did find that it's easy to overcook this, so pay attention to that meat thermometer. I've made this for Christmas dinner for the past several years, and everyone always enjoys it.
