Spice and Herb Crusted Pork Roast

I was going through my pantry and found a jar of applesauce I had canned last Fall. I remember my Mother always serving applesauce with a pork roast so I decided to cook a roast I had in the freezer. I wanted to spice it up a little so I put together this rub recipe. I added the cinnamon because I thought it would go well with the applesauce. 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. 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.
