    I marinated the roast for only 24 hours; I think it might need at least 48. Also, it was not as flavorful as it could have been, (despite using a total of 16 cloves of garlic) so next time I will definitely salt and pepper the roast before cooking it. Otherwise, the marinade made it pretty good!  -  11 Apr 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I belong to a group that meets every 6 weeks for dinner and converstation. I served this dish. Everyone loved it from the man who likes things with a lot of flavor(the garlic) to a older woman who tends toward very mild tastes. The only thing I did differently is that I cooked the roast in an oven bag and I think that helped keep it juicy  -  14 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I used a pork shoulder roast. Was hesitant to use so much garlic, even though we love garlic. Use the suggested amount. The house smells wonderful. I just took it out of the oven and UUUM its delicious. GAve the bone to the dog, Mr. Magoo, I think he likes it also. I marinated the roast for 2 days. 2 THUMBS UP !!!!!  -  16 Mar 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
