Photo looks like a pork loin, however I made it with the pork rib roast. My family was impressed. It was fall apart tender with an amazing taste.

We had the best food for Christmas dinner, but no one could stop talking about this pork. My brother-n-law said it was the best meat he had ever tasted. Two thumbs WAY UP!
