Pork Roast with Garlic ----- Recipe from a very dear friend

Prep :10 minutes .. Bake:1 hour 30 minutes .. Makes 8 servings

1              bone-in pork loin roast (5 pounds)
1/2           medium green pepper , finely chopped
1/2           thinly sliced green onions
1/2           cup chopped celery
8              garlic cloves , minced
1              teaspoon salt
1/4           teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 . With a sharp knife , cut a deep pocket between each rib on meaty side of roast . In a small bowl , mix the green pepper , green onions , celery and garlic ; stuff into pockets . Sprinkle salt and cayenne pepper over the roast .
2 . Place roast in a shallow roasting pan , stuffing side up . Roast at 350* for 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours or until a thermometer inserted in pork reads 145* . Remove roast from oven ; tent with foil . Let stand for 15 minutes before carving .

The memory of Ruby Williams lives on in this always perfect roast . She grew up in a family of 11 children , which meant her mom made basic simple foods most of the time . But not on holidays !
