Momma Jen's Pork Roast

Tonight, I made a Pork Roast in the oven and kinda made up my recipe marinate but it turned out good. This is what I did:

Preheat oven to 375

Get a 4 lb Pork Roast and lightly salt and pepper all over. Remove half of the strings around the pork roast (so that when you pour the marinate it will soak all the meat).
Meanwhile, on the stovetop add together (these are approximates, didn't measure) 1 cup of olive oil, 1 cup of dry red cooking wine (the kind in the grocer at the baking isle), 1/2 cup or so of honey vinegerette dressing, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 2 tsp of garlic powder, 1-2 tsp of salt, 2 tsp course ground pepper, 1-2 tsp of Laureys seasoning salt. Stir and heat till boiling and mix well while heating. Put the pork roast in a dutch oven pan with a top cover. Pour the marinate from the stovetop through the roast and then around the sides of the bottom.
Cut in halves 10 or so Red Potatoes and place them potato -side down in the marinate around the meat. Give the whole pot a good sprinkling of large ground pepper and cover with top.
Put in the oven and cook at 375 for about 2 hours, then reduce to 325 for about 20 minutes.
Uncover and slice, letting the marinate juice soak the meat slices and potatoes. The top of the meat browns in the oven while covered. No need to brown the meat on the stove before cooking.

Other options I could have added are onion slices, and rosemary or other herbs with the potatoes or for that matter any vegetable. I cooked some rice pilaf and black-eyed peas , rolls and Sour Cream Pound Cake for dessert and it turned out very good.
