  1. I have only tried three recipes from your site, but I must say, I am very impressed! I don’t always expect amazing meals from websites since I only trust a few sources and have found many sites and cookbooks to be hit and miss, but I have been extremely impressed with every meal I have tried thus far from your awesome site! I just wanted to say thank you from a new user and keep up the good work! This pork in particular is going to be added to our regular recipes.

    1. Angela, if it were me, I would serve it on a bed of steamed or roasted veggies. You could certainly serve it over rice or pasta, as well.

    1. Daniela, I would give this one a little more time than just overnight (perhaps the morning before you plan to cook it, you put it in the fridge to thaw), since it is a large piece of meat.
