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>"

"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 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."
