    VERY GOOD! I've made it with pork loin as well as pork tenderloin. Great flavor. I made it in my slow cooker and it was great! And to Janet, who didn't want runny sweet potatoes, they weren't runny at all. It's a puree, like mashed but maybe not quite as thick.

    At first I thought this seemed a bit disgusting, but with a loin roast in my fridge that needed to be cooked for a family lunch, I tried this--in my oven since I don't have an instant cooker and didn't need think I really wanted to use my pressure cooker--a roast always benefits from some browning. I roasted the pork at 350 degrees and threw the potatoes and onions in the same pan--no broth at all, but lovely roasted sweet potatoes, onions, and a handful of garlic cloves. OK, it took an hour in the oven and I didn't puree anything. It was delicious. I still think runny sweet potato sauce is a less than wonderful idea, but the lightly charred roasted sweets were delicious and the cajun seasoning was terrific. I'd give it 5 stars, but for the instant pot instructions and runny sweet potatoes--I'm thinking that mashing them with a little butter would be nicer. I didn't need to put dinner on the table in 30 minutes, and sometimes using my pressure cooker isn't all that much of a time saver. I didn't have to worry about the food in the oven and was able to concentrate on other things while it roasted.
