Made this for supper tonight and it was delicious! Pork was very tender and flavorful. It was kind of spicy which I liked but you could cut the spices in half if you wanted it milder. I made gravy from the drippings to go over the meat and mashed potatoes and it was very tasty as well.

Tender, flavorful, and delicious. Bonus: easy and house smelled great all day! The only change I made was using stock instead of water, which I always do.

I've got a question: The very first instruction you give is to "Cut roast in half" - is that vertically or horizontally? Perhaps if I knew why, I'd understand it. Please explain. My bet is that most people just ignored it.

This was okay, but nothing special to anyone in my family.

This was really moist and we really liked it. I would not put as much spices on the top though, it seemed too much and too strong.
