Each time we made this delicious dish, with its savory sauce, in our test kitchen, it disappeared within minutes -- we think the same thing will happen at your party.

Cook's Notes

For a party, put the roast in the oven in the afternoon so it's ready as guests arrive. Make the pan sauce just before serving.

    This recipe sounds amazing, however I really don't like rosemary and only tolerate fennel (sorry). What would you recommend I use instead?

      Leave out the fennel and use ground rosemary if you don't like the leaves or a combination of ground rosemary and thyme. Otherwise get a roast beef!

    This is very similar to how my nonna and my mother slow roasted their bone-in pork shoulder roast--minus the fennel seed. So flavorful and tender. I'll have to try this gravy next time. Rosemary and garlic is just a match made in heaven for pork.

    Cooked roast pork without pan sauce and it was succulent, juicy and absolutely delicious. Next time I will reduce the amount of fennel seed as it was somewhat overpowering.
