“This dressed-up pork loin is so easy that you only have to spend a few minutes in the morning preparing it,” notes Laura Cook of Wildwood, Missouri. “It’s a family favorite because it is so tasty, and a favorite of mine because it’s so fast and easy!”
I sampled this tasty pork roast in a commercial cooking course I took years ago and saved the recipe. Later, I converted it to family-size, and it's become a favorite.

"I love this herbed roast so much that I make it as often as I can," says Edie DeSpain of Logan, Utah. "It's wonderful for special occasions, particularly when served with sweet potatoes and corn muffins." It makes a lot, so you'll have leftover pork for the two reader recipes that follow.
Meet the Cook: Many pork recipes were too spicy for me, so I decided to try this sweeter alternative. That was 18 years ago, and it became a family favorite. It tastes great the day after in a cold sandwich, too.
Today, our two daughters make this roast often. We also have eight grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren.

This is one of the best pork recipes I've ever tried. My family looks forward to this roast for dinner, and guests always want the recipe. The flavorful rub and a glaze sparked with orange juice are also outstanding on pork chops.
Mom would prepare this delectable main dish for our family, friends and customers at the three restaurants she and Dad owned. The herb rub and vegetables give it a remarkable flavor. —Sandi Pichon, Memphis, Tennessee
I can't say whether leftovers from this eye-catching roast are good, because we never have any! I've been making this flavorful main dish for years and have never been disappointed.
