"I THINK what I enjoy most about Ukrainian cooking is the smells it creates. This pork roast reminds me of my mother's kitchen—it smells wonderful! My mother canned and preserved in the fall and always used applesauce to glaze the meat. That's probably why I associate the sweet aroma of this hearty stick-to-your-ribs meal with cooler weather."
In the spirit of July Fourth, my sister and I planned a theme menu for our families that included this wonderful grilled roast. Marinating the meat overnight really boosts the flavor. This entree kept us out of the kitchen and was a nice change from the usual burgers and hot dogs.
