Decent pork roast recipe-- a good change up from using Boston Butt for pulled barbeque. I didn't have any fennel so I didn't use it, and the seasoning was still good. I couldn't find a roast any smaller than 4 1/2 pounds, and 10 hours was still plenty of time to cook it thoroughly and make it tender. I followed advice here and added the potatoes with a few hours left before cooking time was up-- the only problem with that was that there was no way to fit them all down into the juice and below the roast, so they didn't cook evenly. Honestly, I'm not sure what to do about that other than just use less potatoes (the amount that will fit). I guess you have a choice of either a bunch of mushy ones or a few well cooked ones. At the end, I removed the roast and turned the cooker to high, then added a corn starch slurry after it had started boiling to thicken it up. Seasoned well with salt and pepper. This was good served with braised cabbage.
