Hubby went nuts for this. Very tender meat.
Easy to make - even served it to company!
My in-laws are up from Florida and I was called into work. I rubbed the spices on the pork roast the night before and placed it in the liner of my slow cooker. I then mixed up the broth and poured it on in the morning. I put this in the crockpot before I left for work and Wow! what a fabulous taste. I served it with a mix of vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli and carrots) and garden vegetable rice. Thanks for a fabulous recipe. It tasted like something you would get at a Five Star restaraunt.
