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.

Love the recipe - served it at my first pool party of the year and everyone enjoyed it.

I made this two nights ago and will absolutely be making it again. I used more spuds than called for, deglazed the pan with chicken stock. I didn't have any poultry seasoning so I used a little each of sage and thyme. Six hours was just the perfect amount of time in my cooker. I let the roast sit for ten minutes before slicing. Thanks for a keeper, Lennie.

I love a good pork roast and I love sweet potatos so I just had to give this a try and I'm glad I did. This is a wonderful mixture of flavors. I made it just as the recipe called for and shared it with my neighbors last night. Four 5 stars were the results. We absolutely loved this. About the only thing I would do to this the next time would be to add maybe 2-3 more cloves of garlic. This was a perfect hit. Thanks you for a recipe I know will made many more times.

I wasn't fully pleased with the way this dish turned out. The meat was bland. I liked the sweet potatoes and onions, but my husband thought there should have been more onions. The dish was properly cooked after 8 hours, but 7 might also have been sufficient (the potatoes were quite mushy and the meat was slightly dry). There was quite a lot of superfluous liquid left over. I think that some improvements could be tweaked out of this, but since family members didn't like it, I don't think I will try.
