Prepare the pork roast

Pork Roast Ingredients

In order to have a beautiful presentation, you will need to clean up the pork roast.  Cut off any silver skin still remaining on the meat along with any fat.  With a bone knife, french the bones cutting out some of the meat between the bones as well as on the bone itself.

For the binder I used Truff oil, but any olive oil will do.  The reason for the Truff is the additional truffle flavor.  It’s the holiday’s so why not!

Season with your choice of all purpose seasoning.  Be generous with the seasoning patting it in along the way.  Set aside and allow the pork to sweat and absorb all the flavors.

This homemade bourbon sauce is the star of this dish.  It’s what brings it all together.  The bourbon brings the holiday savoriness to the dish while the heat brings another layer of surprise making this the ultimate holiday recipe.  Keep in mind, this will get spicy so depending on your heat tolerance, add smaller amounts of the hot sauce.

In a saucepan, add Truff Hot Sauce, honey, bourbon, stone ground mustard, yellow mustard, soy sauce and some all purpose seasoning.  Simmer over low heat until the sauce thickens.  Set aside while you prep the grill.
