Reviews forGarlic-Apple Pork Roast
"Ok, so I'm guessing that you could use just about any kind of jelly and this would still be good. I didn't have apple jelly, so substituted a half jar of white wine jelly along with mixed berry preserves. Yum!"
"This recipe is very good. I did make minor changes. I marinated the roast overnight in apple juice and garlic. Disagreed before putting into crock pot and instead of water used more apple juice. Added more flavor - very yummy!"
"This was a big hit for our holiday dinner. I used about 2/3 the amount of jelly called for, so it wasn't quite so sweet. But everyone loved it, and my planned leftovers got eaten the first night too! It came out looking just like the photo."
"I liked the flavor but it was dry. Maybe I shouldn't have cooked it as long just like many of the reviews stated."
"I followed the exact recipe and was disappointed. The roast did not have much flavor. There was no hint of garlic or Apple at all. I cooked it for only 4 hrs on low because of other reviews and it was still too long and turned out dry. It's frustrating to wait that long for dinner and not be happy with it."
"Tried this recipe yesterday and it is the ABSOLUTE BOMB!!!!! We loved it and will now become one of our top favorites! Thanks for sharing!"
"I did brown the roast on all sides; did not cut it in half. Cooked 4 hours on medium. Turned out great, and also used leftovers as pulled pork sandwiches."
"I browned the pork first, used apple cider instead of the water, and fresh parsley. Only cooked it for four hours, using a 3.87lb roast. Perfect !!!"
