Sunday Pork Roast
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 1-3/4 hours + standing
Absolutely the worst recipe ever. The flour stayed caked on top of the roast, as did the brown sugar. The meat was dry and flavorless.
Followed the directions exactly, right to the weight of the roast. It was perfect and my whole family loved it. I served it will mashed potatoes, corn casserole and cinnamon applesauce - which went beautifully with the meat. Was very proud of this meal!

I am making this as we speak. I wanted to try a new pork roast recipe. I am rating this before it's done. The marriage of the spices is perfect.
This was delicious and the whole family loved it. After reading other reviews, I made a couple additions. I added oregano to the rub and fresh, minced garlic to the veggies. I used 1 cup white wine and I cup chicken broth in place of the water. Served with mashed potatoes and the gravy. Pork was tender and juicy but did require nearly 2 hours cooking time.
I am making this now. I roasted for 1 hour and all the water is gone. Nothing to baste with. Does not look done. Added another cup of water and continue roasting. We will see what happens.
Wonderful flavor! I cut the amount of sugar to 1/4 C.
Did not care for the pork roast. Bland. The vegetables took on the bland pork flavor. I wouldn't make this again.
The good parts of this recipe is the easy list of ingredients and the nice gravy it can make. But, timing of this cook is WAY off. I bought a 3.25 pound roast and followed the directions to the letter. I timed all the rest of my dishes to coordinate with the finish of this meat dish and it was so undercooked, that rest of the dishes were cold or overcooked by the time I got the meat cooked thru. I recommend this preparation but cook the meat for 1 1/2 hours if you have more than a 3lb roast. Also, I would add a second bay leaf to give the rub a bit more flavor.
An "old school" recipe that brings back memories. I added large chunks of potato along with the carrots and it was a perfect "feel good" meal for us. A real gold standard. Thanks!
