I really liked this one. I may try other complementary fruits besides cherries.

Not bad, but was missing something. Perhaps some allspice and onions?

LOVED THIS!!!! I used two 1 lb pork tenderloins and I cooked them on high for 4 hours and it was perfect! I would reccomend using a spice bag for the rosemary because it was a mess having to separate it from the cherries. I also added more cherries to the reduction sauce. I can't wait to make it again!

i only had one roast that was 1 1/4 pounds. It tasted good but I think I cooked it to long as it dried out.
