YUM. This is a future top 10 recipe I'm sure. The flavor combination is excellent. Loved the herb combination and the sauce is to die for. I could not find havarti cheese so I used swiss and used fresh orange juice in place of the concentrate (since I already had an orange for the zest) but other than that made as directed. I did have some technical problems as I guess I didn't get the roast tied tight enough and most of my cheese leaked out, but just scoped it up and put it on. Thanks so much Nick's Mom for a wonder and make again recipe. Did I say YUM?
