The sauce for this dish makes it elegant and delicious! And it presents so wonderfully, that you would never guess how easy it is to make! My 2 pound roast took way longer than 45 minutes to cook, but it was worth the wait.
Very easy and yummy, great for any night of the week. I had quite a bit of the sauce left over and it was a little sweet but we all enjoyed the meat and there wasn't any left overs but be careful when making the sauce as you need to whisk it continuosly otherwise you will get little white lumps of cornstarch. Thanks Imrendil a very yummy recipe.
