Wonderful! I was skeptical how good this was going to be, because the ingredients are a little weird. But I trusted in the excellent reviews (and kittencal's fantastic recipes I have made in the past) and made it. I ran out of time this morning and didn't get a chance to brown the roast before putting it in the crock pot. I basically just mixed the ingredients together and dumped them over the (still partially frozen!) pork roast and turned it on low. It still was magnificent! Thanks for another keeper recipe. This is going in our favorites!

Easy and delicious! I was skeptical about the sauce, but followed the recipe with only one change and the hubby loved it! I didn't have bottled french dressing so I used E-Z French Dressing and it turned out well. The garlic stuffed inside is wonderful! Thanks again kitten for a great recipe. I'll continue to count on your contributions for a guaranteed yummy dinner.

This was excellent! We used a pork sirloin roast and served it like pulled pork BBQ sandwiches- shredded the meat and served on a bun. We skipped the browning and the sifting of the soup. We just put the pork in the slow cooker, mixed the dressing with the cornstarch, added all the other ingredients and stirred, then poured it over the meat. Will definitely make again. So easy and so good.

This was not a success for me - the flavors and smell did not meld well together for us. We had to throw away the loin. Will not try again.

I have to say this was not good. I tasted it and it had a strange flavor. I had to wash off the roast and throw out gravy. The meat was barely salvageable. Sorry for the negative comment. But tried it and just didn't like it.

Thank you Kittencal, this was deeeelicious. I didn't have time to brown the meat or poke with garlic, so I mixed all the sauce ingredients together and poured it on top of the meat in the crock and cooked away. (I didn't make any changes in the recipe except minus the garlic cloves and upping the powdered garlic a bit.) Just putting that out there for anyone who might have to skip the browning step -- it still works out great. Next time I will be sure to brown and poke, and there will be many next times!

Sorry Kitten, I usually LOVE your recipes, but this one did not work at all. <br/>It all fell part, looked adn tasted burned, and just was eh. <br/><br/>I had to throw it out. <br/><br/>I blame partially on my crock pot- I think it runs a bit hot but I only had it going for abt 4 hrs on low.<br/><br/>Next time I will do the oven- as I feel I have more control.

This was absolutely delicious. Of course I did not have all the ingredients on hand, so had to substitute. I don't ever have French dressing, but used up the last of some Fat Free Italian that had been floating in the fridge for way too long, and the last of some Honey Mustard dressing that had been there way too long, also. And I didn't have garlic cloves, so I just added some extra garlic powder. My husband commented that it was the best meal we'd had in quite some time. That's a big compliment! I'm saving this one in my recipe box!

Okay, so like most everyone else, the ingredients were a bit odd to me. I like odd, so I gave it a whirl. Oh my goodness, it was delicious!!!! Thank you very much for helping my family enjoy dinner!!!!
