    justcallmetoni's Note:

    New to slow cooking, I recently came across this recipe while perusing a cookbook from Mom's collection. Though I have not tried this yet, I'm keeping it here safe for when the time comes. I'm guessing that the honey mustard can be replaced with a combination of equal parts dijon mustard and honey.

      This is truly delicious! It is the rare EASY crockpot meal that is suitable for company! We love it and have made it several times. I use about 1/4 - 1/2 c finely chopped onion in place of the dried onions. Also, since we usually don't have honey-dijon mustard in the house, I substitute 1 T honey and 1 T dijon for the 2T honey-dijon. These substitutions work out just great. Thanks for an awesome recipe!

      I'm really sorry, but these flavors just didn't seem to go together for us. (I completely omitted the orange zest b/c of others' reviews.) My roast was very large, so I doubled the topping ingredients except the cranberries and the onions. Still, the onions were overpowering (and I love onions)! Part-way through cooking, I peeked and noticed that everything looked so dry. I added some water. I'm glad I did because when it was done I had enough broth to make gravy - which ended up being the best part of the dish. The leftovers sat in the fridge for several days before I finally pitched them. With so many great reviews, I just can't figure out what went wrong.

      I'm such a novice...I used pork tenderloins and totally overcooked them, but it was still delicious. Next time I'll try it with a roast.
