Herb Crusted Pork Roast

This year this is our Father’s Day meal…why? because my sweet husband made this recipe for me on Mother’s Day, and he has since crafted it to be his own and one of his favorite recipes of late. A lean pork roast rubbed with herbs and salts to create and fresh, juicy savory piece of hunka hunka burnin’ love.

We personally like to serve it with potatoes and gravy (it’s a kid favorite) and some healthy healthy veggies. (Down below I served it with Twice Baked Potatoes (yummy) ) BUT you can serve it with anything. Rice, quinoa salad, or just A salad. or how about put it on TOP of a salad…. endless possibilities, its customizable.

First of all, this is our very favorite roast, I talked about it before on this Slow Roasted Carnitas Recipe .

The Pork Sirloin Roasts come in a 4 pack (this is just one) for about $15. Buy them at Costco. Borrow a friend’s card and stock up when you go into town. They are AMAZING, they are worth it.
