The pork chops are stacked in the crock pot, so I think you could substitute a small pork roast and get pretty much the same results. Have not tried this but have tried the pork chops and they are great! If you use a roast, please let me know how it turns out.

Very tender roast with nice flavor combination.I used about a 2 1/2 pound boneless roast and cooked it on low for about 10 hours. I didn't have any apricot nectar so I used apple juice and peach jam instead of marmalade. I also used a bit more corn starch as my family likes a thicker gravy. I will make it again soon.
Very easy recipe to make. A good way to use dried fruit. Found the recipe to be a little bit to sweet for my family's taste. Would recommend the recipe if you like a sweet tasting meat. Served this dish over rice so you can enjoy the gravy.
