      This is a very tender and flavorful meat course. I got a late start, so must confess I did not use a crockpot, but put it in my earthenware Romertopf baking dish instead. Cooked it at 400 F (only in a Romertopf though!) for 2 hours. The meat was tender and moist, and the flavor was wonderful. I'm sure that in a crockpot it would only be more flavorful as the seasonings would have longer to blend. Thank you Miss Annie.

      3.5 stars as I made it, which didn't follow the recipe exactly. I used a pork roast we had frozen in the freezer (I don't know what the cut was). I also used pineapple juice instead of apple juice and chicken broth instead of wine. Next time, I'll see what apple juice does. Really, though, it seemed to just need more seasoning (particularly salt).

      Couldn't be easier and the results are flavorful and very tender! My family loved it even without the gravy. For leftovers, I shredded the pork and added a bit of bbq sauce for a pulled pork sandwich with layrers of flavor!
