Interesting combination of spices, which produced a flavorful pork. The house smelled really good while this was cooking, but I think I got my hopes up because the flavor just didn't do it for me. Nothing wrong with the recipe, just a personal preference, I guess. My family really loved it.

Made this the other night. Used lemon pepper and granulated garlic in place of lemons and garlic cloves, but otherwise followed the recipe as written. VERY flavorful, and baboo loved it. I thought that the cloves were a little intense, so the next time that we make this (and we will) they will be reduced slightly.

Wow!! My family really enjoyed it. The aroma was fantastic while it was cooking. I served this baked yam, fruit salad and corn on the cob. I also cooked my yams in the crockpot. IT was so hot today that it was nice not to warm up the oven. This is a real keeper.

I was a little leery of the cloves, but made the recipe according to instructions. It was absolutely delicious! The lemon is very subtle, but a really nice addition. I made gravy from the juices and served it with homemade spaetzle.

I tried this recipe for something different and the pork was so tender and juicy! The herbs were all present in the taste and as it cooked overnight, in the morning the entire house was smelling delicious that could not wait until dinner later that day to consume it all! I saved this as a fav for sure!

Although this was good, I would omit the cloves next time. Fall apart tender and nicely seasoned (except the cloves)

This was good! I placed the roast on potatoes and carrots in the bottom of the crock pot. I added a teaspoon of Penzy's Sunny Spain lemon pepper (no salt) seasoning to the rub mixture. I also placed a fresh sprig of rosemary under and on top of the roast. I made a gravy with the juices but much preferred eating it with crab apple jelly...that really completed the flavors and made it so yummy!

This was delicious! I didn't use as much garlic, and next time will probably use only half the amount of ground cloves. Having barbecue pork sandwiches with the leftovers tonight. Very moist and tender

This was really nice. I did plan on browning my meat before I put it in the slow cooker however time didnt permit this so I just stuck it in. It still turned out great so I wont bother next time either. I did also consider extra garlic (because we love it so much) but then decided to stick to the 6 garlic cloves in the recipe and I'm glad I did because the garlic flavor was perfect. I didnt put the cloves in as I dont really like them. At the end I thickened the juices with cornstarch to make the gravy but I wont do this next time (just my taste I guess). This was even better the nexy day on sandwiches, I will make this again.
