This juicy roast lends itself to variation, as apricot preserves would also work well. The flavors blend together perfectly to create a subtle hint of Asian flair. — Jeannie Klugh, Lancaster, Pennsylvania

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.
