Mandarin Pork Roast

"I've taught university-level English for more than 40 years, but cooking is my first love. I especially like to plan and serve elaborate meals for my friends. This spectacular roast is juicy and tender with delightful seasonings and a beautiful glaze. -Grady Walker, Tulsa, Oklahoma"

My family didn't like this at all. I made it according to the directions and didn't change a thing. Will not make this again as I'm not even sure where it could be changed.

One of the best pork recipes I've come across. The only thing I did difference is that I used a pork roast without the bone. It was juicy, flavorful and everyone had second helpings. A defini...

This is amazing! I made it back in 20002 for the first time and my family fell in love with it. My son loved it so much that he asked me to cook it for his wedding (yes, we catered it ourselves)...

This is the best pork roast ever! My family made it after seeing it in the Taste of Home magazine and we fell in love. Not only does it taste wonderful, but it looks very impressive too.
