Reviews forTender Pork Roast
"It was dry and I added brown sugar to add to the taste, but still dry. I wouldn't recommend."
"Excellent and easy to make!"
"Wish I had read all the reviews carefully before I cooked the roast today, but I just went by the overall 4 star review. The excess dryness and salt were exactly as stated in the negative reviews. My roast was 4 pounds, so I figured it would cook at least 8 hours on low, but then tested it at 7 hours. It was already too dry to slice, it resembled pulled pork. I thickened the sauce, and it was not edible due to the amount of salt. To salvage $20 worth of meat, I added broth to the sauce to cut the salt, re-thickened it, and served limited amounts of it over the meat on a bed of rice pilaf. After diluting it, it did have a nice flavor, but I probably wouldn't try it again."
"Wow, I am surprised to see some reviews that are so negative. I have made this numerous times and LOVE it!"
"Wonderful! Even the kids enjoyed it. We only used 1/2 c of the soy sauce an tomato soup."
"this was the DRIEST roast I have ever made."
"I didn't care for this AT ALL. Used low sodium soy sauce to keep the salt content down, it didn't make a difference. Maybe it was just me, cut into cubes and used it in a casserole next night."
"I didnt like the taste"
"I thought the combination of tomato, soy, sugar and mustard would result in a savory sauce, although I did think that was a lot of soy sauce. While the meat was very tender and tasted good, the sauce was so bitter and inedible...I tossed all the sauce! I would try this again because it is so quick, but I would reduce the soy sauce to one quarter cup and hope the meat still got tender. Did anyone else have this problem? I thought maybe I had read the recipe wrong."
"I cut my roast into about 3 pieces. It was a small roast. I used condensed tomato soup and low sodium soy sauce. Baked it in the oven. We loved it. My husband says I have to make it again. He brings it up every few days that I need to make it again."
