Quick Savory Cranberry Glazed Pork Loin Roast
I made this just as written and this is one of the best pork loin roasts I've made. The sauce is on the sweet side and I wouldn't to use it on side but you don't notice the sweetness when its on the meat. My 4 lb roast did take 1hr 15min to cook to 145 at 425. I also didn't baste every 10min as the roast was completely covered with the sauce every time I went to go put some on. I wanted to try this out before I make it for Christmas dinner. I think I may try sugar free apple jelly and add a little more horseradish and mustard but only because I'm trying to watch my sugar intake.

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin
i used apple cider vinegar instead of balsamic. the roast was not that tender and the carrot that i tossed into the pan, tasted like vinegar. i dont think using balsamic would have made it taste less vinegary. i use the pan drippings to make gray, which in this case made it taste like vinegar as well. would not make again

Oxtails with Gravy
I followed the recipe and while it tasted quite good and the gravy was very good, I will not be making this again (and it was a unanimous decision). This was way to greasy. As I'm typing this, it feels like my arteries are clogging. I am ok with some greasy meals. But even boiling for 3 hours, there is still too much fat. And the broth you use for the gravy has the fat you just boiled off (and I skimmed off 1/2 cup of grease before making the gravy. How this meat is so expensive, is beyond me. If I was starving and had nothing else to eat, would be the only way I'd make this again. This is similar to pot roast, which is what I'll make next time. So if you know what oxtail tastes like and are ok with the grease, you'll like this. If you've been thinking of buying oxtail and trying it for the first time, just get a pot roast.
