This was very bland! I even added some cloves, but it didn't help much. The meat was tender.

MY REVIEW

I thought the flavor was a little weak, I added a few whole cloves to give it a bit more zip, I think the broth added too much liquid and diluted the apricot taste.

MY REVIEW

Why didn't mine turn out good? My roast was way overdone and I only cooked it for 5 hours on low. I'm going to shred the rest and heat it with bbq sauce. At least it won't go to waste.
