This roast smells so good in the oven, and is really great thinly sliced for sandwiches the next day.

I thought this was amazing. I didn't have the Caraway seeds though, so had to sub...used half celery seed and half cumin seed. I also added a bit of garlic powder and some black pepper, and used EVOO rather than Veg. oil. And we used the charcoal grill: about half hour one side, flip, another half hour or so, check temp. We planned on having leftovers, but we ate it all right away. It was amazingly juicy and a ton of good flavor. Will be making this on a regular basis. I am going to buy caraway seeds today, so I will use it next time. I am sure it will be just as good! Read More

We did not care for the taste. I felt so strong about this that I had to join so that I could review this recipe. NOT GOOD! I found that the new bottle of caraway seed has a strange taste which accounts for my above review. We have disposed of that caraway seed and my review should be disregarded. Read More

This recipe was absolutely delicious! I put all the spices in my small food chopper & made gravy with the drippings, chicken broth & some flour thickening. No other spices needed except maybe a little pepper. I'll definitely make this one again - next time for company. Read More

I made this with a 2# pork loin. I used the exact spice rub, but I rubbed the pork with olive oil and fresh ground black pepper, than rubbed the spices onto it, wrapped tightly with plastic wrap and kept in the fridge for about 3 hrs. before roasting. I roasted on a rack surrounded with red baby potatoes seasoned with rosemary, olive oil and salt and pepper. I followed the time and temp. and had a tender a juicy roast with perfectly baked potatoes for dinner. I recommend highly. Read More

Excellent. I only took away one star because the cooking time was not enough. The inside was still raw. Other than that it was good. Read More

This recipe was incredibly good and very easy to prepare. Slicing it thinly for sandwiches the next day was a great idea. The caraway crust gave great flavor to the sandwiches; I just added a bit of horseradish/mayo dressing. Read More

The whole family loved this recipe...the coating tasted great without overpowering the flavor of the pork. We had it with potato pancakes and apple sauce...YUM! Read More
