I made this for Christmas Eve dinner. It was great!! The only thing is I didn't make any gravy be cause I didn't have enough fat drippings, but I think it was better without the gravy.
I had a couple of issues here. We love cumin, but the cumin overwhelmed the fruit flavors. Next time, I will cut the cumin in half. I never butterfly/stuff my stuffed roasts. I insert a long sharp, pointed knife lengthwise into the roast from each end. Then open it up a bit to make a pocket large enough to accomodate the stuffing. The presentation is so nice that way and it is way easier too! I did not get any useable drippings out of this. I ended up with slightly burnt glaze in the pan so no gravy. I think I will make a seperate gravy with white wine next time. Very nice recipe. Thanks so much for sharing!
