    Bev's Note:

    This recipe makes a delicious and flavorful roast. I use about 1/2 cup of maple syrup to baste the roast and add some brown sugar to the sweet potatoes when I mash them. I left the original recipe unchanged here to post for you. I love sweet potatoes with pork! I hope you enjoy this one!

      Bev - this is a winner! I didn't make the sweet potatoes, because I didn't have any, so I made your Carrots & Potatoes Roasted w/ Onion and Garlic instead. I've never had good luck with "beurre manié" (Ok, I admit, I've never made it before, let alone heard of it!) aka fancy gravy, but everything turned out fabulous! I think I started glazing the roast with maple syrup too early because it burned on my pan and I had trouble getting the bits all scraped since I used a pork loin roast and there was little fat, but other than that, it was great. I nixed dh's request for apple sauce with the roast until he had a chance to taste the beurre manié and he really liked it. Since I didn't make the sweet potatoes, I substituted my homemade veggie stock in place of the potato water and it worked really well. This is a great Sunday dinner recipe and I would also serve it to company. Thanks for a recipe that will be in my keeper list!

      Very tasty! I used closer to 1/2 cup maple syrup rather than the 1/4 cup called for. I'm not usually much for gravy, but this makes The best gravy! I couldn't pass on that. I added about a tablespoon of butter to the sweet potatoes, along with a little black pepper, and coarsely mashed with a potato masher. They didn't need anthing more. I will defintely be making this again. :)

      Fabulous with a capital "F". Company worth, and not that difficult to prepare as it turns out. I was surprised that the sweet potatoes had nothing added to them, but they turned out great and the gravy in this recipe is really to die for. Salty and sweet. Meat juices just tinged with maple. Great flavor combinations. And it makes a lot of gravy. Thank you for a dinner that I will definitely be making again and again.
