This recipe is very quick and easy! My family loved it. I did not use as much ketchup and mustard as called and it was just great! I boiled the roast for 10 min and that seemed to be just fine. Good Luck!

You better like ketchup and mustard if you try this recipe. It did not suit my taste. I was looking for something special and this was not it. It was just "so-so".

This recipe was the best pork roast I ever made. It was very tender and had a nice spicey flavor. I make this for my family about every 2 months.

The roast was "fall apart tender". I merely smothered it with mustard and ketchup and did not use the quantities as assigned. It still came up with a sizable and delicious gravy. Go for it.

Yummy!! I substituted spicy brown mustard and on the advice of others, just brushed the ketchup & mustard on the roast. I also boiled for about 10 minutes as was suggested and it was delicious!!

I made it for a gathering of 20 people and everyone loved it. It was very very tender. I would definetly make it again.

This recipe is fun, tasty, and oh-so-tender! My husband kept asking me what I was doing! Boiling a pork roast??? Ketchup & mustard??? You should have seen his face--especially when he tasted it. I did top the roast with a chopped onion before covering it with foil for the baking--yummy!

My husband found this recipe here and decided to try it. It was delicious! We have made it 3 times now in the past 2 months. The only thing is that it can be hard to get the ketchup/mustard ratio just right. I have to say the best mustard to use with this is just the plain yellow (not spicy brown ). All in all it is a great recipe and we will continue to make it.
