Herbed Pork Roast with Onions and Mushrooms Recipe

THIS favorite recipe was one of my dear mother's, and each time I serve it, I'm filled with warm memories. This was our family's celebration roast. Mother served it on birthdays and holidays. The combination of herbs enhances the drippings as well, so I use it to make a flavorful gravy. -Ruth Bethurum, Ozan, Arkansas
