Pork Roast With Thyme and Garlic

Yes, still working on recipes I made for Easter... Joe's not a fan of ham, so I wanted to make a pork roast too. It was the hit of dinner! I personally felt like I put too much garlic in it, but the family politely said it was fine.

Recipe from All Recipes

* 5 pounds pork roast, trimmed
* 5 cloves garlic, sliced
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 tablespoon ground black pepper
* 3 bay leaves - omitted
* 1/2 cup cider vinegar
* 1 teaspoon dried thyme

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
2. With a small knife, pierce top of roast. Force garlic slices into the cuts. Sprinkle the roast with salt and pepper. Place bay leaves in the bottom of the roasting pan, and set roast on top of bay leaves, fat side up. Mix vinegar and thyme in a small bowl, and pour over the top of the roast.
3. Bake in the preheated oven 3 hours, or until an internal temperature of 160 degrees F (70 degrees C) is reached. Using a baster or spoon, baste the drippings over the roast frequently while it is cooking. Let the roast rest for 10 minutes when done before slicing.
