Reviews forSlow-Cooked Pork Roast Dinner
"I like this recipe very much. I liked the gravy but it is very sweet. My husband does not like meat dishes that are sweet tasting but I thought I might sneak it by him. I blamed it on the apple cider vinegar and didn't mention the sugar LOL. If you have family members that are picky about it, you might pass on the sugar."
"I made this exactly as stated. The house smelled magnificent all day as this was cooking. The pork fell apart it was so tender. We shredded it in our plates and dipped it in the gravy. Which I might add was superb. I added this to my recipe box and book marked the page as well. Thank you for an easy recipe that was flavourful and eaten by my teenage son who isn't thrilled with eating meat."
"Being an old man living alone, I cut everything in half. It was the absolute best port roast I have ever cooked. The gravy at the end was wonderful. Definitely a super keeper."
"pork was very tender and full of flavor. I skipped the last step and did not make the gravy at the end to save time. My family thinks it turned out great even without it."
"Great taste. Due to husband's sensitivity to vinegar, I only used 1 T of Balsamic instead of 3 T of cider vinegar. It did the trick, he didn't notice it & LOVED the roast & this is a man who doesn't hand out compliments willy-nilly. Also used fresh baby carrots, unpeeled Yukon Gold potatoes, & Brown sugar. Crock pot on high for 6 hours & 2 on low. Was super tender! Next time I will double the sauce for gravy to have plenty for warm ups. TRY THIS ONE!"
"Oh my gosh, is this good!!!! Wonderful flavor. Making it again!!!!"
"I used onions from the garden and dried carrots from last years garden and my whole family loved this recipe. The roast was tender and juicy and the gravy was rich and the best I'd had in quite a while."
"I almost didn't make this recipe based upon the few negative reviews. I thought it was great recipe. I love slow cooker roast recipes with the vegetables included, then I get my whole meal prepared at once! I didn't find the vinegar to be overwhelming. My whole family enjoyed the meal."
"There was simply an overpowering taste of vinegar. Plus when I made the "gravy" it was so thick it looked like tapioca. I'm not sure the ketchup was necessary, either. But, this is just my opinion..."
