I made a double recipe for a dinner party of 11 people and could have just done a single recipe, but I'm enjoying the leftovers! The pork was moist, tender, and flavorful. I followed the recipe as written except that I substituted dried rosemary and the flavor still came through. It took just under two hours to cook two pork loins side-by-side in a large roasting pan.The veggies weren't as pretty as I'd like, but they tasted SO good. Next time I'll roast them on their own first instead of sauteeing to get more color. I almost skipped the apples because they were a lot of work, but I'm glad I didn't because they were the hit of the party. I made the veggies and apples the day before to save time. The day of the party I just dumped the veggies in the pan with the pork and put the apples in the crock pot on low to reheat. Just add a green vegetable and rolls for a complete dinner. This is the cheapest dinner I've ever made for that many people and I'll definitely do it again.
This is an excellent recipe! I cook it often & my family loves it. Only thing I changed was using only half the size of the roast as a 5 lb roast leaves just too many leftovers.
I'm making this recipe for the third time, and it was a hit both of the previous times that I made it. Great combination of flavors, and fairly easy to make. Excellent dinner for company with everything in one roasting pan. I served with salad and rolls - delicious!
I made this yesterday for my husband and we both really enjoyed it. The only changes I made were to use a smaller pork loin (for the two of us) and I added sweet potatoes to the root vegetables. Next time, I'll also add regular potatoes. And, I did not make the candied apples. Served green beans as a side dish. Can't wait to enjoy the leftovers for tonight's dinner!
This is great dish with two important changes: 1. Do not make the roasted garlic, there is no use for it and the flavors are deep without it. 2. Sear the roast on all sides before spreading the roasting mixture on it. With these changes, it is a five-star recipe.
