Reviews forSunday Pot Roast
"I love this recipe, I cook this meal 3-4 times/yr, even when it's not cool outside. I have recomnended it to many.I cook it in the oven @ 250 degrees for 7-8hrs until pork is done, w/everything sealed tightly in heavy duty foil, so it doesn't get dried out & cooks evenly; because my large crockpot only cooks on high This recipe comes out wonderfully moist as if it was cooked in a crock pot. Thank you, for sharing it w/all of us. Lise"
"This was absolutely delicious! We were so hungry I forgot to make the gravy, but the roast and vegetables with the broth spooned over top was amazing. This is a keeper"
"I haven't tried it yet but would it change the taste if I didn't peel the carrots and potatoes? Because isn't that where most of nutrients are, in the skin?"
"Very good. I did add a little salt and pepper to the gravy!!!!"
"Wonderful flavors from this herb-seasoned pork loin and veggie combo! And so tender. I made mashed potatoes for the gravy to nestle in--that's what the guys in my family crave--and just put in extra carrots and onions in the crock. Hubby went back for a second whole plate! I was even more fortunate to have bought the pork loin on sale. WILL make again this coming fall/winter. Thanks Brandy (and Aunt Elvira, of course!)"
"I have prepared this twice. Great flavor and lots of ways to use any leftovers. The pork is fork tender. Many requests for the recipe!"
"This recipe did a great job making the roast so tender and I love when you can have an all in one meal that cooks in the slow cooker. However my husband and daughter did not like the caraway seed so I will not make this again, though I might adjust with different seasoning in the rub to come up with a flavor we all can like."
"I used fresh oregano and that was just too strong. I followed recipe for cutting potatoes, however they tasted gummy when cooked. Not sure why. Carrots were cooked fine though. Wasn't a favorite."
