Seasoned Pork roast

Let me apologize in advance for the missing picture of the finished roast. This recipe has long been a family favorite and requested my many. I have been trying to blog about it for some while. Unfortunately it is so easy that I often forget to grab the camera. Today I remembered, but by the time dinner was ready the troops swooped in and dinner was gone before I could snap a picture of the roast. Oh well maybe next time.

  • 1-2 lb pork roast
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp horseradish
  • fresh ground pepper
  • sea salt
  • granulated garlic

  • Mix the honey, ginger and horseradish in a bowl. If this looks like a lot it is. I double the recipe and cook a three pound roast. Set the honey mixture aside.

    Season the roast with fresh ground pepper, sea salt and granulated garlic. You could use garlic salt if that is what you have on hand.

    You will want to cook the roast for about 40 minutes per pound. When there is about thirty minutes left smother the roast with the honey mixture. Finish cooking. Remove the roast from the oven and let it rest for about 10 minutes. Slice and enjoy.

    Around here we can pick up the full pork roasts for about $1.75 lb. That makes for a pretty thrift dinner. Yummy too!


    1. Delicious! Try using maple syrup sometime in place of the honey, it gives it a really good flavor!


    Thanks for stopping by for a visit! I look forward to your thoughts.
