Reviews for Pork Roast with Plum Sauce
"I love this "planned overs" idea! Use the leftover meat from this recipe to make a pork stir fry the next night! Saves time and money, always a good thing!"
"The taste of this reminded me of Christmas, is must have been all the thyme, which I liked. I used her suggestion of apricot preserves and I used fresh ginger. What a knock-out wonderful flavor! And tender."
"My husband does not care for fruit and meat combos, so I simply didn't make the sauce. Next time I will make it with much less thyme...the amount the recipe called for was overpowering. Otherwise we thought it was pretty good."
"i wondered about all the thyme in this recipe and i was right, yuck! do you guys test these things?"
"i almost never make the same recipe twice, but i made sure to file this one away. we loved it."
