Reviews for Rosemary Pork and Potatoes
"Delicious! I'm anxious to try the Asian recipe with the leftovers."
"I love this if you double the spices but not the oil."
"This was GREAT - AWESOME - YUMMY!!! My husbnd, who believes that it is a sin to serve any meat or potatoes without gravy, even ate it as is. Although I made gravy for him and it went totally untouched. That is the highest compliment he would ever pay to food."
"This is just delicious. The pork roast was so juicy and tender. Even my picky 5 year old loved it!"
