This was one of the best pork roast recipes I have ever tried! I didn't have ouzo, so I used 2 Tbsp vodka & 1/4 tsp anise seed (crushed). I will definitely use the recipe again! 185 seemed too cooked for my taste; I only cooked to 170 and the meat was perfect.

The only thing I did different is I'm going to cook it on the grill on indirect heat for the first hour or so. THen I'll finish it off in the oven!

So far, awesome. Just mixed the seasonings, and wow...the aroma is spectacular (strong, but good). The roast is cooking right now. I did not have the grinder either, so I just spread it after roasting them.

Really good. Used pork shoulder shank with bone - actually took about 4 hours, even though it was only 3 pounds. Next time I will salt the pork first.

This was wonderful, the only thing I did different was put it in the crockpot on high for 6 hours. Also just rubbed all of the spices on the roast, since I don't have a mortar & pestle. It smelled so awesome, I couldn't wait to try it. Don't skip the fennel bulb. We really enjoyed this, one of the best recipes for pork roast.

Wow! I was quite surprised at how good the roast tasted given that it wasn't slathered in some kind of sauce. I halved the recipe as I was using a roast that weighed 3.5 lbs. We used a pork loin roast as opposed to the Boston butt listed in the recipe as that is what we had on hand. In addition to the fennel and onions, we sliced up some cabbage we had in the fridge as I thought it would be add a great flavour. Next time I will add potatoes and make more of the rub to mix with the vegetables as they aren't flavourful on their own (water doesn't add flavour). The toasted spices were ground in our coffee grinder, and then added to a food processor with the ouzo and garlic. This rub is amazing! Our roast was done after about 2.5 to 3 hours. Making this again for sure!
