My family loves this recipe!! They ask for it often!! My son is studying in Rome right now and he requested this meal for when he gets home in December, the same with my son in Honolulu!!The only changes I make to recipe is to increase the amount of sauce/gravy. I do this my using an entire bottle of sparkling cider and the appropriate amount of soy sauce.

If I make this again, I'll make a few adjustments. I ended up with a crowd for dinner and had very little leftover, so apparently it was good! Unlike other reviewers, I thought the herbs were an appropriate amount. I could not find "sparkling apple cider", so I used apple juice. I think this led to a sauce that was too thin and didn't hold up well, so I would try harder to find that or substitute cider rather than juice. I didn't save any of the sauce for leftovers, and the pork got dry when we tried to eat it the next day. It seemed to be too many apples along the side, I cut that back - I ran out of room in the pan anyway! No one really wanted those anyway. I loved the amount of garlic. Smells delicious! Served with fresh applesauce (which was better than the apples roasted with the pork), roasted sweet potatoes, and green beans for a great company dinner night!
I cut the sage, thyme and and salt by 1/2. The cooking time for a 3 1/2 Lb. Pork roast turned out to be over two hours (meat thermometer used). This was well worth the extra time. Everyone had seconds and commented that this was the most flavorfulpork roast that they had ever had. I will make this again soon.
Had some people over when I made this recipe, was hoping to have some for leftovers the next day but they ate it ALL!!! Love this recipe! Perfect for fall!!
THis was a awesome quick and Easy dish!! The whole family loved it!!
