Picture is about what mine looked like. Made this for company. Had a real craving for pork and got a very nice looking tied roast. Served with #43846 Apple Tarts for dessert. Will make again, as soon as the butcher comes up with a good looking roast again. This will be a regular.

This recipe makes a nicely flavoured roast. The vegetables had great flavour and there was only the roasting pan to clean up which is a great bonus. The only problem I had was that it took quite a bit longer to cook my 5 pound roast than the 90 minutes. After 150 minutes the roast was at 160 and the veggies were still tender crisp.I will certainly make it again but will allow for more cooking time.

The roast was very tender and moist with excellent flavor. It was 160°F right at 75 minutes but the vegetables weren't done yet. I removed the roast and let it sit before slicing it while I let the veggies cook longer. (I switched over to convection and they were done in about 15 more minutes.) Next time, I'll cut the veggies into smaller pieces rather than just the quarters the recipe calls for. We thought the herbs & garlic were fantastic on both the roast and vegetables. I used the leftover roast in a 15-bean soup that I made the next day.
