Reviews for Holiday Pork Roast with Ginger Gravy
"this recipe is good with chicken wings"
"Will definitely make this again. But, didn't use the sage; we don't like sage. It was delicious!"
"This is a very good recipe. It helps to read all the words in a recipe. 2 carrots are plenty for what they are used for."
"I will definitely not make this again. No one liked it and it probably was the sage in combination with the other ingredients."
"Very good...but I recommend more carrots. 2 medium carrots will not feed 16 people."
