An excellent, flavorful, moist roast! From the rub to the glaze, this roast is packed with tastes that will delight your senses! Very simple to prepare, using Carrie Ann's excellent directions. This recipe will go into my "Company Worthy" file ;). Thanks for the great supper tonight, Carrie Ann!

This recipe is great! The rosemary/garlic/pepper treatment alone added great flavor and smelled wonderful, but the mandarin oranges and the sauce give it a beautiful presentation and adds even more delicious flavor. Definitely a keeper. I'd be proud to serve this to guests.

I think I've died and gone to heaven! This recipe is phenomenal. At first, I was a little skeptical about such an array of ingredients together for the glaze, but that composition is the secret sauce. I am looking forward to preparing this for my mother-in-law because this will blow many of her wonderful recipes out of the water! The meat is succulent and the unique flavor leaves your mouth salivating for more. Thank you for posting it!

This is a very yummy recipe. A tad sweet, I thought, so next time I'll be reducing the honey. I must admit though, that my marmalade was very sweet and I used orange juice instead of orange juice concentrate (since I don't have that). So that might be the reason. It looks very nice. We had it with potatoes but I think Thai rice would have been a more complementary choice.Also brokkoli or sweet peas as veggies might take a bit from the sweet taste. Besides the colour combination would look nice on a plate, since my roast had an almost red colour. Very nice recipe. Thanks for sharing.

Absolutely fantastic roast. Made this for Easter dinner and my husband went on and on about how good it was. Didn't change a thing. Very easy to prepare.

If you want to make an impressive meal, I suggest you try this. We were blown away. The spice combination has a wonderful smell and flavor. The oranges and glaze add another dimension to the flavor that is superb. The meat was so moist. Thanks for the recipe and easy to follow directions.
