Reviews for Slow-Cooked Pork Roast Dinner
Sort By :
I used onions from the garden and dried carrots from last years garden and my whole family loved this recipe. The roast was tender and juicy and the gravy was rich and the best I'd had in quite a while.
I almost didn't make this recipe based upon the few negative reviews. I thought it was great recipe. I love slow cooker roast recipes with the vegetables included, then I get my whole meal prepared at once! I didn't find the vinegar to be overwhelming. My whole family enjoyed the meal.
There was simply an overpowering taste of vinegar. Plus when I made the "gravy" it was so thick it looked like tapioca. I'm not sure the ketchup was necessary, either. But, this is just my opinion...
This dish was easy to make. The the meat & veggies cooked up great and I had even put the pork in still frozen. My family & I just didn't care for the seasoning.
The taste of the apple cider vinegar was very strong. I doubled the liquids/seasonings because I added a lot of vegetables to stretch it out to feed several people. The meat wasn't particular tender, even though I cooked it overnight in the crockpot.
