I had a pork roast in the freezer and was looking for a Zaar recipe that I could try, anything using the crockpot is always appreciated. The sauce with the added cloves gave a nice flavour, and I did serve it with mashed potatoes. Thanks for posting.

Excellent!! So easy, and delicious - an impressive dinner. I browned my pork loin before placing in crockpot; cooked tender in about six hours on low. I used 1 tbsp. cornstarch/1 tbsp. water. Served the sauce over the sliced pork, accompanied with green beans and cornbread stuffing. A keeper! PS -> This sauce would be great over leftover Thanksgiving turkey.

Easy to make but very uninteresting flavor. Two tablespoons of cornstarch makes paste, not gravy.
