This is the meal I have become famous for, and it is so simple. The garlic and apple flavors really compliment the pork. It's great with steamed fresh asparagus and roasted red potatoes. —Jennifer Loos, Washington Boro, Pennsylvania

MY REVIEW

"I liked the flavor but it was dry. Maybe I shouldn't have cooked it as long just like many of the reviews stated."

MY REVIEW

"I followed the exact recipe and was disappointed. The roast did not have much flavor. There was no hint of garlic or Apple at all. I cooked it for only 4 hrs on low because of other reviews and it was still too long and turned out dry. It's frustrating to wait that long for dinner and not be happy with it."

"Amazingly both of my very picky kids love this pork recipe. I brown the roast first and cook it for about 5 hours depending on size. Super easy and delicious."

"I did brown the roast on all sides; did not cut it in half. Cooked 4 hours on medium. Turned out great, and also used leftovers as pulled pork sandwiches."
