"I have made this several times. The only change I make is to add 1 tablespoon olive oil to the ingredients to make more of a paste. I have also put this on chicken breasts. They were also delicious."

"Are there enough drippings to make gravy? If so, has anyone made gravy from the drippings?"

"Thanks to TOH's recipe-a-day emails, my husband and I THOROUGHLY enjoyed this last night!!!! I made it exactly as stated, and it turned out juicy and VERY flavorful. I was worried I didn't have enough when I was adding the rub to the meat - but when tasted, it was perfectly seasoned! I served it with Mashed Sweet Potatoes (with ginger and cinnamon maple syrup mixed in) and crescent rolls. A total hit and we're excited for leftovers tonight!"

"This says Savory pork with sweet potatoes. Where is the recipe for the sweet potatoes? They make you click on a rating in order to make a comment. If they don't want people to take away from the recipe, they should let you submit a comment without clicking the stars."
