Reviews for Savory Pork Roast
"I have made this a couple times and we really enjoy it. I also add olive oil to the spices as a previous reviewer had recommended. If you have any leftovers this is great, thinly sliced for cold sandwiches."
"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?"
"It's the best I ever had."
"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."
"I used it as is and it was great have used this at least 4 times"
"Delicious! DH asked me to repeat this one, so it is now my "go to" pork roast recipe."
"We love this recipe. What a great tasting roast pork. Had with baked potatoes and a vegetable. Definitely recommend.5/11/15 - Just an update. Tried this recipe again after a very long time and it still wows me as to how good it really is. To sunnysum, if you come back to check, my roast did NOT have enough drippings for gravy but I had just made my own. Also, my roast was NOT dry as I used a meat thermometer and it was perfect at the pork stage."
