The meat was dry and tough. I couldn't find apple jelly and so used apple butter, but otherwise followed the recipe. Sauce was fine - the meat just wasn't good. Very disappointing. Anything that is in the crock pot all day should NOT be tough. The follow up recipe for the Spanish Rice, though, was actually really good.

This roast was a cinch to prepare, and was so flavorful and tender! I used a bone-in pork roast as that is what I had on hand. I will use the leftovers to make pulled pork. I think the sweetness from the apple jelly will add delicious flavor to the barbecue sauce. Easy and scrumptious-will definitely make again! VFE

Love this! I did increase the garlic - double - no vampires in this house and added a bit more salt. By 8 hours it shredded for me, but that's ok, it was still really tasty

I followed the recipe as written, but it only needed to cook for 4-5 hours. The meat was very tender, but this was quite bland.

Very easy and tasty. Quite a lot for our little family of three; it will last for weeks. I don't usually like pork, but I'm finding that if I cook it in the slow cooker, I really like the texture and flavor.

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.
