"Dry as dry could be. Way too sweet and not enough flavor."

"I am an elderly care giver and the first time I made the recipe for a couple I used to care for. Not only did they love it I also made it for my family and they loved it as well. I have made this recipe several times and am not a big pork fan, however this makes me reconsider. I plan on making it for my brother's family while visiting in Maryland."

"This recipe was so good I wouldn't be surprised if I got a proposal from my boyfriend tonight! I took one of the reviewers advice and reduced the remaining sauce with smashed pears and spoonful of brown sugar to a syrup. Poured that on top and AMAZING! Recipe was super easy-which I need more of in my life."
