“When I lived in Chicago used to go to Cicero for a treat like this, served with steamed dumplings and mashed potatoes. Use the drippings to make an incredible gravy.”

Original recipe yields 4 servings



  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Heat a roasting pan over medium high heat until hot. Rub the roast with the marjoram, salt and pepper. Brown all sides of the roast in the hot roasting pan. Sprinkle caraway seeds over all and pour in enough water to come halfway up the sides of the roast.
  3. Cover and place roast in the preheated oven. Bake for 1 1/2 hours, or until an internal temperature of 145 degrees F (63 degrees C) is reached, about 30 minutes per pound. Remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes before carving.

I first let the spices "merry" for 24 hours. After browning the roast, I cook it using apple cider beer in the pressure cooker and served it with spatzle and cooked apples. Skim fat and reduce liquid for gravy. It's wonderful and is now my husband's favorite pork roast recipe. Jannette



I cooked my roast in the crockpot and it turned out great. The gravy was also pretty tasty.



After years of unsuccessfully trying to duplicate a traditional Bohemian Pork Roast with gravy & dumplings Christmas dinner I had with a family of Bohemian ancestry back in the early 1970's, I stumbled across this recipe. I prepared it this Christmas along with gravy made from the pan juices and Spaetzle. My quest for the perfect Christmas Pork Roast from my past has now been ended. The only change I made to the original recipe was the addition of garlic powder in the rub. It was a huge hit with my family and I thank you so much for helping perfect my Christmas dinner. I will use this recipe for the rest of my life and hopefully pass it on to my children.
