This pork roast and sweet potatoes make a nice meal. I made the recipe as directed and marinated the pork roast for 8 hours. The pork was nice and tender as were the sweet potatoes. The marinade did not seem to penetrate the meat though as we really could not taste the seasonings once it was cooked. I think this pork roast would benefit from a sauce to serve on the side or over the cooked pork. Made for ZWT9 - Caribbean, August, 2013.
