Cindy Steffen from Cedarburg, Wisconsin shares one of her family favorites for cold-weather comfort. “This recipe takes less than five minutes to assemble and is delicious.” TIP: “I like to serve the roast with rice, then use the tangy sauce as a gravy for both,” Cindy shares.

"Unbelievable! I did alter by adding pork neck bones in the bottom of the slow cooker (bones make better gravy, discard after cooking) lightly browned the roast and placed it on top of neck bones. Added salt and pepper,garlic powder and thyme on top of roast. I agree that 2 T. cornstarch is plenty enough to thicken the gravy. Yummy!"

"<p>Wonderful flavor and so easy. My boyfriend doesn't like mustard so I added some onion, pepper, rosemary and garlic to help hide it. It was delicious. Will definitely make it again, perfect for our low-sodium diet.  The gravy was delightful. Started out with 2 tblsp corn starch as other reviewer suggested and ended up using the full 6 tblsps. Can't wait to get to the leftovers.</p>"
