I just made this recipe for the first time today. I saw this recipe and loved it and wanted to try, only to find after getting it going that it had such negative reviews but decided to go with it anyway. I followed the recipe to a T with the exception of adding some pepper and it was excellent! :) My husband and I LOVED it and our daughter did as well. It was tender (falling apart) and FULL of flavor. I used the jellied sauce like the recipe says. When I do pork roasts I tend to poke the meat all over with a fork before putting it in...this may be why mine had a lot of flavor as opposed to the others who tried it. All in all - excellent! Paired with some oven roasted potatoes, delicious! :)

You need to use whole berry cranberry sauce and cut out the cranberry juice. I used juice and jest of 1 whole orange.

This recipe is not what I thought it would be. It didn't really taste very good just a tad like clove and slight sweet taste. I wish it had more sustenance and was seasoned a little more. I will say that its very easy but I was definitely let down and so was my family.

This was easy to make and turned out really good. I used whole cranberry sauce, a bit of orange juice instead of cranberry juice and no added sugar. Put on low in the crock for about 8-9 hrs. and it came out very tender. Not an overpowering taste but just a hint of flavor.

Like another reviewer - the recipe looked great and I was surprised by the negative reviews. I followed the recipe as stated - no substitutions. Pork was fork tender and the sauce was so tasty. I'm planning on making this recipe again for a late holiday supper meal. It was so easy in the crockpot

I made this today. I didn't have the juice so I used water and added a half can extra cranberries. I used regular mustard. I didn't have dry mustard. I added more cloves. It came out so tasty. Very good. The roast fell apart. I forgot to take a picture of it though.
