Mustard-and-Herb-Crusted Pork Roast
An overnight brine locks in flavor and moisture for this bone-in variation of pork roast. We like bone-in because it imparts extra flavor as the meat roasts, but keep in mind it does take a little extra time to cook.

We love that Tyler’s rack of pork recipe comes with options. If you’re in a hurry, you can cook the rack at a slightly higher temperature to speed things up. If you have the time, though, cook it low and slow — the meat will be extra tender and juicy.
