Wow! Thank you for featuring my recipe! :) I check on the reviews occasionally and it was a nice surprise to find it here. I'm slightly baffled when folks comment on how they had to add liquid or oil or sear the outside of the roast to make it come out moist. Cooking to the proper internal temperature and letting it "rest" after baking will yield a moist roast no matter what is done to the outside. I rinse the roast and pat it dry with paper towels.

With the rosemary, garlic and pepper it should still be very flavorful. DO NOT use salt substitutes; they are high in potassium which is a no-no for kidneys. You can find lots of good recipes if you do a search for "kidney diet recipes" or go to the kidney foundation website, or others like it. Good luck!
