This is great! I made 1 change - used Splenda Granular for the sugar. I also upped the hot sauce as you suggested. A real winner! Thanks!

This was truly a fabulous pork roast: juicy, tender and flavorful. My husband raved and raved about it, and he generally isn't a big fan of pork. I used Splenda instead of sugar, Balsamic instead of red wine vinegar, added chicken bouillon to the water and used reduced-sodium soy sauce. I also skipped the added salt as well as the hot sauce. I used plenty of sliced onions--probably about 2 medium/large total--and added about 3 tsp. of minced garlic to the onion, as well as about a tsp. of garlic powder to the liquid mixture. I pierced the roast multiple times with a sharp knife before pouring the mixture over it, and cooked it on high for 1 hour and on low for 5 more hours. It was PERFECT. Simple, quick-to-assemble and delicious recipe. I already have shared it once with a friend, and we just had it yesterday! Thanks for sharing. I know it will be a favorite in this house!

"This is a winning recipe"! Easy to put together. DH loved it and said so - me too! We love garlic and I did add 3 diced cloves of garlic to the onions. Instead of water, I used chicken broth. (I wanted to use an open container) Other than that I followed the recipe to the letter. When the roast was done, I put the roast and juice in the fridge overnight and skimmed the fat the next day. (More healthy) After I skimmed the fat from the juice, I used some of the juice & some chicken broth to steam cabbage for a side dish. I heated the pork and thickened the remaining juice, with cornstarch, for a gravy. I added baked patatoes and had a wonderful supper. The pork was juicy, tender, and, with the awsome tastey gravy, cabbage and patatoes. It was a "to die for" meal! This is a keeper forever. Thank you Kelly
