Everyone's eager to eat after the wonderful aroma of this roast tempts us all afternoon. This is a great Sunday dinner with little fuss. Since I found this recipe a few years ago, it's become a favorite with our seven grown children and their families. -Elinor Stabile, Canmore, Alberta

"as roasts go, this is good. I gave it a 5 star because it IS good, but its not my favorite way to prepare a pork roast. But as the way I usually prepare one has a totally different flavor, it would not be fair to compare the 2. Its a matter of mood really. When Im in the mood for something "summery" this works perfectly, with no changes. Definably worth making again in future."

"Delicious I was also surprised that such a simple recipe could have so much return on flavour. I will definitely be making this over and over again. Company worthy."

"I have been making this delicious roast for more than 30 years. When I first saw the recipe, I thought it might taste like the wonderful pork sandwiches we used to buy when we lived in Rome, Italy - and it does."
