    Very Good
    Overall a great easy dish. Little salty due to the soup mix so I might use less than a full packet next time. - 7/6/10

    This was really good! Served it w/ mashed cauliflower & it was an unbelievable meal. So good it made moderation really difficult! LOL - 2/9/10

    OMG! This is very good! The flavors work so well together! This will definitely be one of my regular recipes. My family really enjoyed it as well. The only thing I adjusted was the cooking time, but I always expect that, particularly with the meat recipes...VERY GOOD ROAST!!! - 8/16/09

    I liked it, I had to change the recipe a little because I did it last minute. I will have to try it again with the canned cranberrys instead of frozen cranberrys. - 7/5/09
