This recipe has been in the family for years; nothing complicated about it. It is very easy, and the no-fail method makes it a winner to serve unexpected guests. Family approved over and over again. The gravy that you make from the drippings has an awesome flavor, especially over mashed potatoes. Carving with an electric knife makes serving a cinch.

  • This is a Bone in Center Pork Roast, that roast just as well weather it has the bone in or is boneless. Those pan dripping on the pan makes robust and flavorful gravy. This is a no fail best ever pork Roast you will ever make. Try it and see for your self
    Allow Roast to rest 5 or 10 minutes to redistribute juices, before carving. I use an electric knife it makes the task much easier. NOTE: You can make a nice pan gravy from the pan drippings if desired. Don't forget the applesauce.
