Although this recipe seemed so simple it came out SOOO delicious! I didn't have any marjoram but I had a spice mix with thyme, marjoram, oregano and some garlic. It worked perfectly. Best pork I've ever made. Wonderful!

This is a super yummy recipe. I love using marjoram with pork so I knew this would be to my liking!! I followed the instructions as listed and serve with wild rice. Will make this again, thanks for sharing your 5 star recipe :D
