Hello! I am a stay-at-home mom to two wonderful children who keep me very busy.

Pork Roast

I have tried a few pork roast recipes, but nothing compares to this one.

It was originally an Emeril Lagasse recipe, but I made a few tweaks.

It is a family favorite!

My family and I love this pork roast recipe! As a family of four, we eat until we are full and we still have leftovers for days!

The gravy is so savory and tasty, you will want to put it on everything. The pork roast is tender and juicy.

Serve it over a bed of rice with a side of green beans. It is so good!

To make the green bean side dish: add a can of green beans, a few tablespoons of butter, diced onions and few strips of bacon crumbled into a saucepan with enough water to cover the beans. Simmer on low for an hour. What a wonderful combination!

Even the leftovers taste good!
