    I adapted this recipe from one I found in one of those booklets you buy at the check-out in the grocery store. Love the garlic hit!

      Fantastic flavours!! We loved it and I will put the recipe in my hard copy. The only thing that didn't work was the timing. I kept a very close eye on it cus I didn't want the pork fall apart stringy or the yams mushy. Mine only took 4.5 hours on low!! Cooked perfectly with all holding their shape and lovely slices of pork. Had I followed the instructions as written we would have had soup for supper. I had very small baby yams so I just peeled and cut them in half instead of cubing them. I didn't have any poultry seasoning in so I replaced it with paprika and I did add a half teaspoonful of red pepper flakes. Thanks for a keeper.

      This was the first recipe where I'd used sweet potatoes that didn't have marshmallows and/or pecans all over it, and I loved it! I tossed everything in the crockpot, cooked it on high for about 4 1/2 hours, and it was delicious. The only thing I didn't have that the recipe called for was poultry seasoning, and I have no clue what's in poultry seasoning, so I just tossed in some rosemary, thyme and Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning. Easy to make, and tasty to eat - definitely a keeper! Thanks for posting, Lennie.

      I love sweet potatoes and figured they'd be perfect with a pork roast. We liked it, but didn't find it to be outstanding. I did like the addition of the poultry seasoning.
