    We liked it. Cajun flavors are a great spin on roast that is "new" for us!

    I cooked Cajun Pork Roast for my husband (who loves Cajun food) and myself. The roast turned out great and tasted delicious. I made the roast with a roast that had the bone in it, I cooked it for a little longer than called for and it turned out great. I am definitely adding this roast to our monthly menus. I made a sauce to go with the roast by combining the pepper sauce and steak sauce.

    My roast was about 5 lb. with bone. Baked 1.25 hours longer and pulled it at 160 degrees. Next time I'll let it bake longer uncovered. Moist and excellent flavor. Cooked it on a cooling rack.
