Slow-cooked dishes are a favorite in our home, and this one is perfect for fall and winter evenings. A pork roast cooks all afternoon with sweet onions, honey, soy sauce and ginger for fabulous flavor. The aroma fills the house with a scent that cries out, 'Welcome home!' —Sheree Shown, Junction City, Oregon

"Way too strong cloves!! And, I would suggest brining the pork roast first. Mine was so dry that it just crumbled apart. Really yucky - we threw away the leftovers."
