Did not make the gravy."

"Wonderful meal with great flavor! I did not have fresh herbs so I used dried and it turned out great. I also used red onions and low fat sour cream in the gravy- no one could tell it was lite."

"I have made this several times--I have never made the gravy--we just like the flavor of the roast by itself"

"This was great! would not change this one up. A lot of times I do, but this is perfect. Make enough for leftovers. Used for a casserole too. Just cut up the meat into chunks, Cook up some noodles and Cheese add some of the sauce and some Pork gravy and bake at 350 for about 20 min. Great!"
