"The beer -- I like to use Molson Canadian, but any brand will do -- is the key to this simple but delicious slow cooker recipe. Add your favorite spices to give it a different flavor. This recipe is very flexible! And best of all, the leftovers can be used for pulled pork, stew, or sandwiches." — Childe

I used a porktenderloin that was packed already marinating in a garlic/lemon seasoning. I used more vegetables than the recipe called for, so it took a little longer but the tenderness of that loin gave 'ME' GREAT REVIEWS!!! T H A N K S ! ! ! ! ! !
I made this dish as directed...it was very bland and not pleasant to eat. The directions were sketchy...I put it on HIGH for 4 hours and it was a good thing I did...the potatoes were just past cooked...I would not recommend this as it was written.
As the author stated, this is a great base recipe to tailor to your liking! I slightly increased the amount of veggies and added 1 chopped celery stalk celery, 1 quartered red apple, and for herbs I added 1 tsp dried thyme, 1 tsp dried rosemary, 2 bay leaves and 1 Tbsp dried parsley (fresh herbs would have been better). For the beer, I increased the amount to 8 fl oz and used Rickard's Red (I'd prefer to use Rickard's Dark, but we were out). I cooked it on high for 4 hrs instead of on low. Extremely flavorful, tender, and convenient. My family and I loved it and will make it again. I highly recommend this recipe and encourage tailoring it by adding herbs/spices you like that compliment pork.
It wasn't bad, I just didn't care for it. The meat was very tender. Just didn't like the flavor much.
This tasted just like every other slow cooker roast type thing. I will say I felt like it was a perfectly good waste of beer :0(
This is a great recipe. I added a few more spices to give it a bit more flavor!
I made this as directed using Wierbacher Winter Ale & added more veggies, garlic and sea salt as well as 1 can of Hunts diced tomatoes. It was pretty good. I nice base recipe to explore options and a great way to use up some of your least favorite brews included in a sampler pack! I only gave it 3 stars because it did need some tweaking to make it just right for us.
i loved it! i salted it when served but that is pork for ya! thank you!
