Reviews for Apple-Dijon Pork Roast
"That was absolutely fantastically tasty,will definately be cooking this one again thanks for the recipe Cindy.. Fred ,Northampton United Kingdom.... :-) :-)"
"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!"
"we enjoyed this sauce/gravy very much the cook time for me was 3 1/2 hours so just watch the temp of the meat instead of whats suggested"
"This was very tasty and easy to prepare. I love slow cooker recipes. When I can be cooking a great meal and able to do other things at the same time I am a happy lady."
"<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>"
"Excellent flavor, however DO NOT use 6 tablespoons of cornstarch. That's way too much 2 tablespoons is probably enough."
"This was delicious and I served it over buttered noodles. The only change that I will make next time is to increase the cooking time to 5 hours as my roast was just slightly pink on one end."
"I made this as is, without changing a thing, and even my pickiest daughter loved it!!! Will make again and often!"
"I read the reviews beforehand and decided to put in a few slices of a fuji apple because I saw others were adding apples. I also added dried cranberries at the same time. They are awesome in the gravy and give it that extra flavor with the pork. I will be making this again! It was so yummy!"
"Wonderful! I added a sliced apple along with thinly sliced onion for more flavor. I did also season my roast and brown it on all sides for more flavor prior to slow cooking."
"everyone loved it! I added a little garlic and salt/pepper. Served it with roasted apples sprinkled with cinnamon and green beans."
"Didn't realize until I was ready to prepare that this was a slowcooker meal. I ended up making it in the oven and it was good but I think it would probably be better prepared correctly. I thought it was going to be overwhelmingly mustard"y" when I saw the amount of dijon required but I liked the flavor."
"Delicious! I used pork tenderloin for a lighter meal and it turns out great. I also throw in two sliced granny smith apples near the end of the cooking time. Turns out great!"
"This was so good! My kids even enjoyed it. I am not a big mustard fan so I only put 1/2 cup and it was the perfect amount of flavor."
"My family thoroughly enjoyed this meal."
"This was very good. I added rosemary, and reduced the dijon to a heaping tablespoon. I also added carrots and potatoes.(they took alot longer to cook, so next time I might pre-cook the veggies a little)"
"This is delicious!! I did not have apple juice so I sliced an apple. Will make this again!!"
"Just made this dish today. My husband loved it and said it's the best thing I've ever made. I used a 6lb roast (bone-in boston rump roast, because it was cheaper for a roast that size opposed to boneless!) and the meat literally fell off the bone when I took it out of the crock-pot. The gravy was delicious as well. This one is a keeper!"
