Herbed Pork and Roast Potatoes

My nephew from Toronto shared this recipe with me a while back. It is very flavorful, and the accompanying roasted potatoes make it a complete meal.

    Very easy to make, the seasonings give a delicious taste to the potatoes and pork roast. Would also be great and more of a one pot meal if yoo added some baby carrots and onions.

    5 stars is not enough stars this recipe should have way more. This recipe has an awesome flavor. my family raved about it and my boyfriend took it to work and it reheated really well. I had a larger roast and had more potatoes so I made extra maranade and it was really tasty.
