Reviews for Pork Roast with Mashed Potatoes and Gravy
"This was very good. The only thing I did different was to use 1T each of cornstarch and cold water to make the gravy a little thicker."
"The pork was nice and tender and the gravy was delicious!"
"Came out so tender and juicy, just wonderful! The only thing I'll change for next time is to include less vinegar, just because my family prefers it that way. Other than that, very yummy!"
"This recipe makes the most tender most moist pork I have ever had !!!! Next time I make it, I may tweak the ingredients a bit, but it is absolutely wonderful!!!!"
"my husband and I just love this recipe. Turns out great every time. Gravy is a little thin so added more cornstarch."
"I would make this again with one exception - I'd leave out the cider vinegar. The gravy was really tangy. My son loved it but my husband wouldn't eat it at all. I did like how easy to prepare it was. The meat was very easy to slice, but a little dry without the gravy (which was tangy)."
"It was better on the second day! When I first pulled it out of the pot, the cider vinegar was a little over powering, but still good. The next day it was even more delicious! It also makes great sandwhiches!"
"This was fabulous!"
