In Storm Lake, Iowa, Pat Botine surrounds this moist pork roast with a pretty combination of carrots and onion. It feeds a family of four with plenty left over for dishes later in the week. And since the creamy gravy is served at the table, the leftover pork is easy to use.

"The family loves this recipe. The pork comes out nice and moist and the gravy is delicious. The only thing I do different is that I add potatoes with the carrots and start the gravy using the fat from the drippings with flour, then add the sour cream and the rest of the broth. I probably also used a bit more butter for browning and sauteing.

I highly recommend this recipe."

"This was a delicious pork roast, and easy to put together. I cooked it in my counter top oven and it worked perfectly. I like the fact that it's truly a roast.....slow cooking the meat seems to force a lot of the juices from it, leaving the meat almost dry. I was going to use some of the leftovers to make another dish, but we ended up just slicing and eating the meat over the next two days! Next time I think I'll cut the butter down to 2T. to brown the roast, and not make the sour cream sauce, as there was a lot leftover."
