This seasoned pork roast, attributed to Italian miners who came to work on Minnesota’s iron range, is a favorite in Minneapolis and points north. The seasoning of fennel and oregano can be traced back to Italian porchetta, roast pig. This flavorful roast makes a simple feast when served with lima beans, mashed potatoes and stewed tomatoes.

  • 1 tablespoon fennel seed
