After having a wonderful cherry Brie topping from a local market, I just knew I had to create one for pork. If you're really crazy about cherries, add even more to the slow cooker. —Susan Stetzel, Gainesville, New York
This stuffing, with its pleasant herb flavor, is a nice change of pace from traditional bread stuffing. The crunch comes from sunflower kernels. (Leftovers would be great in the Chicken Jambalaya recipe above.)
"When my son and his wife were married in our backyard, I served this special roast at the rehearsal dinner," writes B.J. Wall from Lanexa, Virginia. "It can be prepared on the grill or in the oven, but grilling enhances the flavors. The fruit salsa perfectly complements the pork's tasty herbal rub."
I added roasted apples, cherries and onions to turn ordinary pork into a "break-away" dish and I haven't turned back since. There is a short time frame between caramelized onions and burnt ones, so pay close attention once they start cooking. —Josh Downey, McHenry, Illinois
My mother gave me this recipe some time ago. It's a winner in our family - kids especially seem to like the spaghetti. It's a different way to serve pot roast...and sure makes the house smell good when it's simmering! Everyone I've shared the recipe with has said how much they're enjoyed it.
Our children wouldn't dream of eating sauerkraut until they tasted it with this tender and juicy pork roast at a family celebration. They devoured it and went back for seconds! Now it's a mainstay in my pork recipe file.
