ROAST WITH THYME
Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 3 Hours
Makes 6 to 8 servings
5 pounds boneless pork
3 cloves garlic, sliced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon ground black pepper
3 bay leaves
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1. Preheat oven to 325
degrees F (165 degrees C).
2. With a small knife, pierce
top of roast. Force garlic slices into the cuts. Sprinkle the
roast with salt and pepper. Place bay leaves in the bottom of
the roasting pan, and set roast on top of bay leaves, fat side
up. Mix vinegar and thyme in a small bowl, and pour over the
top of the roast.
3. Bake in the preheated oven
3 hours, or until an internal temperature of 160 degrees F (70
degrees C) is reached. Using a baster or spoon, baste the drippings
over the roast frequently while it is cooking. Let the roast
rest for 10 minutes when done before slicing.
