Ingredients:

3 lbs. pork roast
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
ground black pepper
1/4 cup water
1/8 cup cooking sherry
chopped parsley
1 bay leaf
1/4 cup bourbon

Directions:

Place the pork roast fat side up in a roaster. Rub the roast with lemon juice. Mix together the brown sugar, flour, paprika and salt. Rub this mixture all over the roast. Generously sprinkle with ground black pepper.

Combine water, 1/8 cup sherry, and 1/8 cup bourbon, and pour over the roast. Place a bay leaf in the pan and sprinkle the roast with parsley. Baste heavily and often.

After 1 1/4 hours, pour the remaining bourbon over the roast, and continue to baste until you are ready to serve roast. Bake approximately 2 1/2 hours or 45 minutes per pound.
