    I was expecting more from this recipe, given the rave reviews. The onion marmalade was fantastic, though I would personally like less ginger to be involved. The roasted sweet potatoes were also great. The pork, however, did not stand up flavor-wise to the marmalade or the potatoes. There was absolutely zero flavor other than saltless pork and a vague nutty flavor from the ground pecans which needed something to boost it. Rather than complimenting the pork, the onion marmalade only causes it to taste even less flavorful. This was an easy recipe with a beautiful presentation. I will make it again, but will definitely alter the seasoning of the pork -- maybe add some sage and salt?

    This was FABULOUS! My family loved it. The recipe was a bit time-consuming but not difficult. I cooked the pork a LOT longer than suggested in the recipe because it was still pink even though the pieces weren't any thicker than what is in the photo. The pork was still very tender. I also left out the bacon from on top of the potatoes.
