MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 19, 2014

"Read the reviews here, looked forward to making this. Looked pretty enough for company, but I'm glad I made it only for us, first. There was very little flavor in this, quite disappointing. The pork was tender enough, but if you make this, either parboil your sweet potatoes, use canned or cook for a lot longer like I had to. My husband said if the had ordered this in a restaurant, he wouldn't order it again."

"This was tasty and easy for a weeknight dinner. I only had whole berry cranberry sauce and seeded mustard, but they both worked out quite well. Will try this again as written."
