A memorable main dish for any special meal, this moist, tender roast has a pleasant spicy flavor. It looks so pretty garnished with slices of apples and oranges and fresh herbs. Guests at our patio parties rave over it and request the recipe. -Pat Stevens, Granbury, Texas

"We substituted french dressing for sweet and sour sauce simply because we didn't have any. It turned out great and our whole family enjoyed it."

"Absolutely delicious and so easy. Kept me out of the kitchen and looked great served to guests. And the leftovers were really good too stir-fried with some rice."
