Reviews for Ranch Pork Roast
"We made this yesterday and my husband really liked it. I did take the advice of the previous reviewers and doubled the rub ingredients. It was a 2 lb pork-loin but was very round vs long so it took about an hour and 15 minutes to reach the correct temperature. We served it with butter noodles with parm cheese. The pork came out very moist and flavorful. I used penzey's spice ranch mix."
"I too doubled the rub, and this turned out beautiful! I don't have a roasting pan with a rack, so I sliced potatoes, onions, and celery, laid them in the pan and put the roast on top, fat side up. I then baked it uncovered at 450 for 10 minutes, then lowered the temp to 250, and baked it slow for about an hour and 15 minutes. Beautiful color and very moist!!!"
"I've turned to this recipe several times for my family of 4. This is delicious and moist. I double or triple the topping though because I dont think the amount called for is enough and i like to have a little extra to serve with the meat."
