This roast pork loin recipe with potatoes is a snap to prepare and cook. The pork roast is rubbed with basic seasonings and they it's roasted to perfection with potatoes. I use fingerlings or small whole new potatoes if they're available. Red-skinned potatoes or Yukon gold are good choices as well.

Serve the roast with steamed vegetables and a salad for an extra-special family meal. This roast makes a great Sunday dinner.
