Pork Roast Provencal Recipe

This is my daughter's favorite meal and she always requests it for her birthday dinner. I give credit to my mother for teaching me to become skilled in the kitchen.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Bake: 2 hour YIELD:8-10 servings


  • 1 boneless pork loin roast (2-1/2 to 3 pounds)

Combine 2/3 cup of broth, lemon juice, oil, onions, bay leaves, thyme, salt and pepper; pour over roast. Seal bag or cover; refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally.
