Herb and Spice Crusted Pork Roast

I know a lot of folks who serve pork for New Year’s Day. If you want to dress up your pork roast, try using a simple herb and spice rub. They add so much flavor. I made this rub recipe for a pork roast and really loved the way it came out. I added some cinnamon, because I was serving the roast with home made applesauce and I thought it would all work well together. I was not disappointed.



Spice and Herb Crusted Pork Roast

The Rub:

2 T. coarse sea salt

1 T. paprika

1 T. dried parsley

1-2 cloves minced garlic

2 t. fresh grated ginger

2 t. cinnamon

2 t. fresh ground pepper

Combine all the rub ingredients.

1 pork roast- I used a 3 1/2 pound pork sirloin roast- bone-in.

Spread the rub over the roast, pressing in to help it stick. You can do this a day ahead, then just wrap the roast and keep in the fridge until you are ready to cook it. Place pork roast in a roasting pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 2- 2 1/2 hours. Serves 4.

This rub would also be nice on poultry. Maybe I’ll try it on duck the next time.
