"Delicious! Cooked on low in slow cooker for 8 hours. Since there are only two of us, I heated up the leftovers with barbeque sause for sandwiches the next day."

"We loved this recipe! I altered the cooking method slightly to accommodate our more active lifestyle by cooking this on high in the slow cooker for 3 hours, then on low for another 3. It turned out juicy and delicious. My picky-eating 6 y/o stepson called it "spectacular.""

"I gave this 5 stars because the flavor was excellent, and the gravy was so flavorful and delicious. However, the cooking method did not work well for me. I turned it down to low and covered it as it said to do, but after an hour, I stuck the meat thermometer in it, and it didn't even register! Pink juices ran out! That was a disaster. It was late, and we were hungry, so I nuked it as a last resort. So next time, I think I would follow the same recipe but bake it in the oven in the sauce in a glass casserole dish covered with a lid and then make the gravy as directed. I think the meat has a better chance of cooking more evenly all the way through, staying moist, and not getting overdone on the bottom. Fabulous recipe, though! I will definitely make it again, but baked instead of cooked on the stovetop."

"The pork was moist, tender and full of flavor. The gravy was absolutely delicious. I would definitely make again, but next time, might add a little pepper to give it a touch of heat."
