  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 2 teaspoons garlic-pepper blend
  • 2 teaspoons lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1 boneless rolled pork loin roast (about 5 pounds)
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic-pepper blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest


  1. Combine the garlic salt, garlic-pepper and lemon-pepper; rub over roast. Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until a thermometer reads 145°.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine the basting sauce ingredients. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Brush over roast occasionally while baking. Let roast stand 10 minutes before slicing.
