"This is wonderful!!!! Followed the recipe, but I did not make the gravy, though I'm sure that would be good, too. But I just sliced the pork, put it on the plate with the veggies, and spooned the juice over it. One of my new favorites!!!"

"All cooked well through. I didn't do the rub overnight as I had no time to do that. It was good, but it did lack some salt and some taste to it. Would not be my #1 recipe choice."

"I didn't do the rub overnight, because I didn't realize that was in the recipe. I don't know if it would have been more savory if I had. I thought this was still really good. Especially after I dumped a ton of salt on my individual serving. Hubby and child did the same and liked it. The pork came out super tender."

"My pork still has two hours to cook. I cut a slice and it is a little dry. why does john l939, hockeygmgp and sue zappa talk about cutting roast in half. I do not see that in the directions. with two hours to go and I hope it gets as tender as people say, because it is not there yet. will let you know. thanks, Sukie"
