Roast Pork and Potatoes Recipe

Publisher Photo
Meet the Cook: We used to raise our own hogs. This recipe was given me by a fellow farmer who also had pork on the dinner table a couple of times a week. I'm a dietitian at the local VA hospital. Cooking, of course, is one of my top pastimes! My husband and I have four children and one grandson. -Denise Collins, Chillicothe, Ohio

"Made this recipe on New Years' Day. I knew it would be good just from the introduction of Meet the Cook and it was. We all enjoyed the dinner. Thank you for the recipe."

"Delicious! My family loved it. I also added fresh mushrooms and soy sauce. I did have to double the seasoning mixture to cover the meat and vegetables properly. Also, I needed to bake it for about 30 minutes longer than stated in the recipe. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing."

"so moist and tender possibly the best pork roast I've ever had. Only thing I might change is instead of putting the seasoning on top of the roast I might put it in a large baggie and massage it into the roast for better coverage."
