Mandarin Pork Roast Recipe

Mandarin Pork Roast Recipe

I've taught university-level English for more than 40 years, but cooking is my first love. I especially like to plan and serve elaborate meals for my friends. This spectacular roast is juicy and tender with delightful seasonings and a beautiful glaze. -Grady Walker, Tulsa, Oklahoma
