This was amazing! So full of flavor. Hubs and kids approved too! I used a big half loin about 4-5 pounds and doubled the rub to make sure I had plenty to cover the pork loin completely. A little extra never hurt anyone! I skipped the tomato since I didn't have any. Instead, for the veggies, I used unpeeled quartered red potatoes, and peeled carrots that I cut up into chunks. The roast was finished before the vegetables. They needed about 30 minutes longer. So after the roast was done I pulled that out to rest and covered with foil. Leaving the veggies in the roasting pan, I melted butter on them and stirred it to coat. Then salt

Camie, I almost got homesick. I have not made this recipe in a long time, but will make it this weekend. You got my Grandmothers Recipe down to one missing ingredient. A couple of Bayleaves. Now to authenticate this German meal even more, you have to have sweet/sour Red Cabbage with it. Guten Appetit (good appetite)

This roast is delicious. Moist and juicy with lots of flavor it was a big hit with my husband and two young boys.
