Old-Fashioned Pork Roast

A lightly sweet coating keeps the pork roast tender and moist. With just four ingredients, this roast is great for everyday dinners but looks impressive enough to serve guests.

    This is a fantastic recipe! I made it for my husband, who tends to be a picky eater, and now it is his favorite meal!SC

    I prepared it to a medium, then let it set for a few minutes. So juicy and tender.
