This recipe was so simple that I kept on passing it up - didn't seem much different than a lot of other roasts that I make. Well I was wrong - this gets 5 stars along with some of my other pork favorites! Made no changes other than to put the seasonings on the meat and wrapped the meat in plastic wrap for a few hours (I do that with a lot of my roasts if I have time so that the flavor seeps in). I also put slits into the roast and inserted slivers of garlic in the slits (which I always do with pork roasts - my preference). I decided to follow Vini's cooking directions exactly and my 3 lb. pork roast was cooked PERFECTLY!!! Just slightly pink - as it should be!! Soooooo moist. Also decided to make the gravy as Vini suggested rather than doing it my way which is work intensive and sometimes can be a disaster if you are cooking other things at the same time. Vini's gravy was EXCELLENT - Novice chefs will love his recipe for gravy - you can't go wrong! Since it was Columbus Day and everyone had to work except for me I made this roast and all the trimmings - mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, Stove Top Pork Stuffing, Asian style green beans, the last of the summer tomatoes, and apple sauce. Well we feasted that night - and just like Thanksgiving - we enjoyed the leftovers the next night since the meat remained so moist! Thanks Vini!

Vini, I don't know how you came up with this recipe... but we think it is most definitly 5 star. I had a 3.25 # roast and checked at 90 minutes, and it was to right temperature. We are cutting carbs so I left out the cornstarch and went for some more flavoring for a "gravy". I added some broth and some red wine vinegar and boiled it a few minutes with the left over juices and added water. I served by slicing (very important to let it "rest" for about 10 minutes before slicing) into 1/2 thick slices and pouring the thin sauce over and letting it set in the juices covered in a warm oven while I made side dishes. Wow! moist and great flavor. Thank you, for probably the best recipe I have tried(And I have tried QUITE a few) on this website.

We thought this was excellent. I was running late and didn't make the gravy, but it was delicious without. I will definitely make this again (next time with the gravy). I also added some potatoes to the pan to roast along with the pork.
