Honey-Mustard Pork Roast

Family and friends are surprised when I tell them this impressive-looking roast is easy to prepare. I simply marinate the roast a few hours, then pop it in the oven. While it bakes, I whip up the sauce to serve alongside. —Grace Brennfleck, Clairton, Pennsylvania

    We did this recipe a little different. We prepared it in the slow cooker and it was fabulous! I used all of the ingredients above and let cook over low heat for about 6-7 hours. The pork was SO tender. It literally fell apart after cooking. I also threw some potatoes and carrots in the cooker. The entire dish was great. The sauce was very flavorful. Almost like a honey mustard pulled pork mixture. My family requested that this become on a frequent rotation.
