Honey-Glazed Pork Roast

A beautiful pork roast is one of the easiest (and yet most appreciated) ways to serve a large group. This one, in which zesty lime serves as a counterpart to sweet honey, will be a winner every time. If you're accustomed to roasting pork to an internal temperature of 165F, you should know that the USDA recently changed the safe internal temperature of pork to 145F, which results in much juicier pork!

Directions
1.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl combine paprika and coarse salt.
2.
Place pork in a shallow roasting pan, bone side down. Rub paprika mixture all over pork, pressing in lightly. Tuck sprigs of fresh oregano under the kitchen string tying the roast to the bone. Roast, uncovered, in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes per pound (1 hour 10 minutes to 2 hours).
3.
Meanwhile, place sweet pepper pieces on a baking sheet. Drizzle peppers with oil and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Spread peppers evenly on baking sheet. Place in oven with pork the last 40 to 45 minutes of roasting until peppers are tender and begin to brown. When roast reaches 155 degrees F internal temperature, remove to a cutting board and cover with foil. Let stand 10 minutes.
4.
While roast stands, in a small saucepan combine honey and lime juice. Bring to boiling, stirring occasionally. Boil gently, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Season with salt and pepper.
5.
Remove string from roast. Using tongs, turn roast on its side and pull bone away. Turn roast top-side up and slice. Serve with peppers, honey glaze, and fresh herbs. Makes 8 servings.
