MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 23, 2012

"My husband really liked this. I ate it but I really don't like roast of any kind so I'm not one to judge. I changed out the savory for tarragon (his favorite) and skipped the sauce. It made it into my tried and true recipes for him."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 24, 2010

"Has excellent flavor, even though the "sauce" doesn't really seem like sauce. It is delicious. And to earlier comment - no, you do not have to brown the meat because you are cooking it uncovered...it browns in the oven."
