This recipe was fantastic! Everyone in my family loved it. I was a bit concerned because this was my very first time using a slow cooker, and the directions say "cook on low for 4 hours", whereas in my crockpot (Rival 6 qt oval time programmable) the 4 hour option is in the "high" temp. It wasn't a problem at all. 4 hours was the perfect amount of time for my 2.69 lb pork loin. I followed the instructions to the letter because the ingredients seemed perfect---and they were. For the wine, I used the wine I was drinking that night---a cabernet sauvignon. Also, halfway through the cooking time I did stab the pork a couple of times so that the sauce would seep in. I served this with some mashed potatoes (perfect side dish because there was plenty of sauce left over). I did thicken the sauce a bit after the pork was cooked and had been taken out of the slow cooker. I used 2 tbsp of cornstarch and enough water to dissolve it and remove any lumps. I poured this into the crockpot and stirred for a minute and let it sit in a high temp for 10 min. It was great---a definite keeper!
