This is an easy-to-make delicious dish. I did sear/brown the meat in my cast aluminum slow cooker insert which works beautifully--one pot cooking! I also made the gravy in the same pot--gravy is simple and very tasty. Add steamed green beans and mashed potatoes for a well-rounded meal.

Unbelievable! I did alter by adding pork neck bones in the bottom of the slow cooker (bones make better gravy, discard after cooking) lightly browned the roast and placed it on top of neck bones. Added salt and pepper,garlic powder and thyme on top of roast. I agree that 2 T. cornstarch is plenty enough to thicken the gravy. Yummy!

we enjoyed this sauce/gravy very much the cook time for me was 3 1/2 hours so just watch the temp of the meat instead of whats suggested

This was very tasty and easy to prepare. I love slow cooker recipes. When I can be cooking a great meal and able to do other things at the same time I am a happy lady.

<p>Wonderful flavor and so easy. My boyfriend doesn't like mustard so I added some onion, pepper, rosemary and garlic to help hide it. It was delicious. Will definitely make it again, perfect for our low-sodium diet. The gravy was delightful. Started out with 2 tblsp corn starch as other reviewer suggested and ended up using the full 6 tblsps. Can't wait to get to the leftovers.</p>

Excellent flavor, however DO NOT use 6 tablespoons of cornstarch. That's way too much 2 tablespoons is probably enough.

This was delicious and I served it over buttered noodles. The only change that I will make next time is to increase the cooking time to 5 hours as my roast was just slightly pink on one end.

I read the reviews beforehand and decided to put in a few slices of a fuji apple because I saw others were adding apples. I also added dried cranberries at the same time. They are awesome in the gravy and give it that extra flavor with the pork. I will be making this again! It was so yummy!
