A flavorful herb rub seasons this moist pork roast that’s perfect for special meals. I also like to use the rub on pork chops or pork steak for timely yet tasty suppers. –Joyce Dubois of Wolsey, South Dakota

"I only gave it 4 stars because I did'nt have sage. I grow my own herbs and the rain we have had lately was too much for the poor little guys. Next time it will get 5 stars"

"I use this on pork chops, not a roast, and I sprinkle it on top rather than rub it in, and because I use it on individual chops, it cooks much faster, but this recipe has become one of our frequently used stand-by recipes, because we all love it."
