This pork roast is so moist and tender, it melts in your mouth. My son puts it at the top of his list of favorite foods. We like it with mashed potatoes. —Corina Flansberg, Carson City, Nevada

"Made this for dinner last night and the pork loin was very tender and moist and it made a delicious gravy to serve over mashed potatoes. I made recipe as stated except I added some chopped onions under the pork loin."

"Seasoned the roast according to the recipe with the addition of some garlic powder. Put roast in slow cooker on bed of onion slices. Prepared as per recipe. Roast was moist and tender. Delicious! I'd make it again. I did not use the drippings to make the gravy, ran out of time."

"I was excited to make this recipe but was then disappointed in the outcome. The meat was tender but both meat and gravy lacked flavor. I am sure once I doctor it up it will be much better. It's a good base but definitely needs work."

"Lacked Flavor...I read all the comments and really seasoned. I even added fresh garlic and an onion. That wasn't the most disappointing part, the meat was so dry. I only had it on for 5 hours on low. I checked it at 3hr30min and the internal temp was 145 which is perfect. I should of took it out, but everyone said how moist it is so I wanted to be true to the recipe. Such a letdown. The house smelled amazing for hours and I was dying to eat it. I threw most of it away. And that gravy was nothing special."
