I did a variation with canned cherry pie filling and added seasoned salt to brown a pork roast with. Cooked the pie filling with 1/4 C soy sauce, 1T Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 C brown sugar, 3 T lime juice, 1 garlic clove, 1 tsp ginger, 1 large sweet onion and 2 T brown gravy mix. Slow-cooked for 6 hours.

I made this to go over ham steak slices. I combined all of the ingredients in a saucepan on the stove & cooked it on simmer until the cherries were soft. It was excellent! Will definitely make it again.
