Great recipe idea, I reduced the sugar a bit and used a different variety of pepper. Also I seared the outside it a cast iron pan before using a crock pot for about 6 hours but maybe I should have gone 8. The garlic came out like butter.
It doesn't get any better than this. Who doesn't love applesauce with pork anyway, and the slight hint of apple flavor the juice gives to this roast as it slow cooks is just perfect. Juicy, tender, fall apart, and perfectly seasoned just from the worcestershire sauce alone is all it needs. I serve it as a roast, not sandwiches or pulled pork. Works for bone-in or boneless. I also bump up the oven temp to 225º instead of 200º for the 5 hours.
Oh yeah...good stuff....did it for a potluck couple of weeks back...I did deviate this one time and added some valdalia onions as we love those and thought it would be a great addition and couldn't help ourselves...and used golden brown sugar as that's what we had at the time.
This is really good - it comes out very moist and tender, with a sweet taste.
