I made this recipe this week, with one change: the recipe I had called for only 1/4 cup of chicken broth. It was delicious, and the sauce wasn't too thin. The leftovers made great barbecue sandwiches, too. I appreciated how easy it was, and that it used ingredients I already had on hand.
This is a good idea, but for my family's tastes, it was a bit lacking. Most meat dishes with fruit-based sauces or glazes need a good bit of "savory" to offset the sweetness. On the second try of this recipe I tweaked it, and my family went CRAZY for it: 2.5 lb pork roast, 1/2 jar apricot preserves, 1 rounded TBL of dry onion soup mix, NO added liquid. Seasoned the roast with garlic, seasoned salt, black pepper, and quickly seared in a saute pan; deglazed the pan with a MINIMAL amount of water, added to sauce mixture. Place roast in crock, cover with sauce, cook on low for 4.5 hours. WOW!!! The liquid from the meat brings the sauce to almost the right consistency, but I did need to add about a TBL of corn starch and simmer on high for a few minutes to thicken. Served with home-made dinner rolls, mashed potatoes, steamed green beans. Like I said, as written, my family (all male, all carnivores) thought it was ho-hum, but with tweaking it was "Man, Mom! This is awesome!!"
We really liked this dish! I did a couple of changes though after reading others posts. I seasoned my pork with onion salt, pepper, salt, garlic powder and salt..then browned it on both sides with olive oil. I did 8 oz chicken broth in lieu of 10.5 of condensed chicken broth... and I sliced my oions instead of chopped. I also drizzled honey lightly over the pork roast.
For an extra tang, I add a few fresh cranberries and it is wonderful. I also add potatoes, mushrooms and carrots for a complete dinner. This received rave reviews from family and friends. I have made it four times and again this weekend while skiing.
This recipe was so good everyone, even my 4 & 6 yr olds asked for seconds! I made a few changes that were suggested in other reviews to give it a little more flavor. I seasoned it with Montreal steak seasoning & salt, then browned it in olive oil before putting it in the crockpot. I also sliced the onions instead of chopping them, used 8oz of chicken broth instead of the condensed, and drizzled it with honey!! Will definantly make again!
It was DELICIOUS! My husband cooked our pork roast in the crock pot and added lots of veggies. Yummy!
I thought the meal was great! The pork pulled apart and had a nice flavor. Not as strong as I thought it would be. I used 2 lbs pork, a full can of preserves, and half the can of broth. Good consistency in the sauce!
I made this for dinner tonight for my roommate and I for dinner and is was great. We both had seconds. Added some garlic gloves to the roast. Which is something we don't usually do so that we have room for dessert. We were so full we skipped dessert.
