Savory Pork Roast

I made this recipe up after tasting a delicious pre-packaged, no doubt sodium-laden, pork roast at a wedding shower. It took a few tries to get it right, but tasting the results was fun!

I am still amazed at how simple and delicious this comes out!

Savory Pork Roast
3-4 Lb. Boneless Pork Roast
Onion Powder

Drizzle honey over the pork roast to make a nice, even coat. Sprinkle on salt, pepper and onion powder to your liking ( I like a lot of onion powder and pepper on mine). Pierce the roast all over with a small knife to allow the honey and seasonings to seep in. Let roast sit at room temperature for one hour, turning every 15 minutes or so to roll the roast in the honey that drips down.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Brown all sides of the roast in a skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Place roast in a shallow roasting pan on a rack. Place in oven and roast for about 28 minutes per pound. Check doneness with meat thermometer beginning about 3/4 of the way through the roasting process. Internal temp should be 160 degrees when done roasting. Let roast rest on platter tented loosely with foil for about 20 minutes to allow juices to redistribute. Thermometer should read about 165 degrees after resting.

Slice and serve warm.

~Wonderful served with green beans and Au Gratin potatoes or peas with mashed potatoes and gravy.
