Well, I tried this a few months ago and wasn't too impressed, so I decided to give it another shot today and see if I could improve it. I used this recipe in the crockpot, and doubled the amount of sauce (except for the pepper, only used 2 teaspoons). Placed it in the crockpot, added a 1/2 cup of water to the bottom and cooked on low for 8 hours. Pork wasn't as tender as I'd hoped, but I think that was my mistake - the cut of roast was too thick to tenderize in 8 hours. The sauce tasted pretty good, especially after I boiled the drippings and added some cornstarch for a gravy. Yum. I had added potatoes under the pork with a layer of onions on top, hoping they'd soak the flavor of the honey mustard, and, unfortunately for me, they did. Folks, honey mustard and potatoes do NOT mix, so don't do what I did. Ended up tossing out the potatoes and saving the roast. Stick to the recipe and double the sauce and it'll turn out great.
