Serve this delightful pork roast with rice or mashed potatoes and veggies. We like leftovers with gravy, served on buns the next night. —Patricia Defosse, Wilmington, Delaware

"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."
