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

"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."

"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."

"We loved this and I usually don't change recipes but this one reminded me of another one so I added some things. Half an envelope of onion soup mix, 2 tbls of brown sugar and 2 small apples sliced. I also used thick boneless chops instead of the roast. I did drain out the apples but leaving them in to make the sauce would also be good. I served them with white rice. Very yummy."
