I love this herbed roast so much that I make it as often as I can. It's wonderful for special occasions, particularly when served with sweet potatoes and corn muffins. —Edie DeSpain, Logan, Utah

"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."

"If you follow the cooking instruction and bake till it reaches 160 degrees and let rest ( should then rise to about 165 degrees) you are sure to have a non moist piece of pork. The Gov't. revised this measurement in 2006 to 140 degrees and rest to 145 degrees. Since this recipe first appeared in 2002, they get a pass."
