So, I picked up the roast and a bottle of my favorite sauce and headed home. That weekend I made it for the first time, and it was delicious! So much so, I had a special request from Hubby for it again this week. If you have a dutch oven, you'll definitely want to try this- your pork roast will turn out so tender you won't believe it!
