Reviewed May. 16, 2014

"My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe! My roast was only 2#, so I cut the recipe in half and cut back the cooking time a bit. (Next time, I'll use the full 6 hours...I like my roasts to fall apart in the slow cooker!) I shredded the pork, used a 20 oz. can of pineapple and served the mixture over noodles...yum! We loved it and I will definitely make it again!"
