    We loved this so much, I made it twice in one week. We devoured it! Just check the roasting time. I thought it seemed a bit off. I checked the roasting chart in my cookbook and cooked it at 425 degrees for about 35 minutes. Also, recipe doesn't specify, but make sure you drain the marinade before roasting.  -  04 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe turned out great. I didn't have sherry so I used apple juice, nor did I have apple jelly but added apricot jam. All the flavors worked nicely together, and the meat was so tender. I used the leftover meat and sauce in stir fry the next day....delish!!  -  08 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
