Reviews for Pork Loin with Potatoes
"This roast was very moist and flavorful. The garlic added a pleasantly strong taste along with the fresh herbs. We aren't too fond of mushrooms but found the gravy a delicious addition to the roast and potatoes. Will make this often!"
"The pork loin was delish however I added water to bottom of pan and covered last hour. It was moist and served with mashed potatoes. This will for sure be made again in our household !"
"So delicious, a nice change from the traditional roast beef with mashed potatoes and gravy! The leftover pork also made very tasty sandwiches the next day!"
