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!"
