If you like pork roast you should try the pork roast Franconia style with a dark beer gravy. This recipe is authentic and proven and comes from the German region Frankenland or Franconia. The Franconian region is located  in Bavaria, north and south of the Main River. There is a lower and upper part which is called “Oberfranken and Unterfranken”.

This pork roast has a special gravy as it contains beer and bread. For sure this pork roast is the best served with dumplings as they make them in the Frankenland. Happy Cooking!
