Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Pork Roast with Garlic & Herbs

  It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s!

Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me.  I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers.

So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is PORK ROAST with GARLIC & HERBS!!

There’s nothing more satisfying than a pork roast dinner in the fall and winter months. Pork and garlic are so delicious together.  Add rosemary and thyme, and you’ve got yourself a savory mouthful.  🙂  Try this recipe and see if you don’t agree.

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s.  Happy eating!

  1. I love pork roast! My husband cooked pulled pork for the first time in a crockpot this weekend (we usually do it outside on the grill), and I’m using leftovers to make pulled pork enchiladas tonight. Can’t wait!
