"When I lived in Chicago used to go to Cicero for a treat like this, served with steamed dumplings and mashed potatoes. Use the drippings to make an incredible gravy."

bone-in pork roast
salt and pepper to taste
I first let the spices "merry" for 24 hours. After browning the roast, I cook it using apple cider beer in the pressure cooker and served it with spatzle and cooked apples. Skim fat and reduce liquid for gravy. It's wonderful and is now my husband's favorite pork roast recipe.
I'm not a fan of caraway seeds so I'm not sure why I made this. Something different, I guess. DH liked it better than I did. Just too "caraway-ie" for me.
I cooked my roast in the crockpot and it turned out great. The gravy was also pretty tasty.
After years of unsuccessfully trying to duplicate a traditional Bohemian Pork Roast with gravy & dumplings Christmas dinner I had with a family of Bohemian ancestry back in the early 1970's, I stumbled across this recipe. I prepared it this Christmas along with gravy made from the pan juices and Spaetzle. My quest for the perfect Christmas Pork Roast from my past has now been ended. The only change I made to the original recipe was the addition of garlic powder in the rub. It was a huge hit with my family and I thank you so much for helping perfect my Christmas dinner. I will use this recipe for the rest of my life and hopefully pass it on to my children.

An easy to make, melt-in-your mouth, moist and delicious pork roast. Did make the gravy and it was wonderful!
I grew up in the aforementioned town of Cicero and this recipe is right on the money! A taste of the sadly disappearing Bohemian restaurants found on the Cermak Road of my youth.
I followed the recipe except after browning the roast, I removed it from the pan and added the caraway seed with 1/2 cup of water, simmered it down and then wrapped the juice with the roast in tinfoil and put it on the grill for 2 hours. This was the best pork that I have ever eaten. We put some corn on the cob, unshucked on the grill which was a nice meal idea. This winter I will try it in the oven.
