"This is the simplest pork and noodles recipe I know. It takes only 5 ingredients - two of which are salt and pepper. My kids LOVE this!! You'll be amazed at how good this is. I cook the meat in my crockpot, but my mom has always done it on the stovetop. I never believed her when she said it was flavored basically with salt, pepper and beef broth. I thought I was so smart and added spices and garlic, but I found that nothing I tried was as good as her version. As they say, mother knows best....uuggghhh!"

"This was a fantastic dish in the crockpot and makes leftover meat to freeze or use in another dish. You truly don't need any spices aside from salt & pepper!"
"Very simple for a busy week night. I can put this together in a few minutes before I go to work and dinner is (basically) ready when we get home. I served this with buttered egg noodles garnished witrh some sliced green onions and buttered yeast rolls. The seasonings for the pork roast are endless and can be altered to your familys preference."
"We (especially my husband) loved this! I did, however, season it to my family's liking. The recipe rides a lot on the quality of the beef broth. I added garlic to the broth. Near the end of ccoking the noodles, when most all of the broth was gone, I added 1/4 cup of butter, more pepper and some parsley flakes. It was wonderful with steamed baby carrots on the side. Hubby put a dallop of light sour cream on top of his noodles. He wants me to make this again. Thanx!"
"Aggiezoey! This is more than "Delicious"...it's WONDERFUL comfort food! It got kind of chilly and rainy in Missouri today so I threw 2 small pork loins in the crockpot and curled up in front of a movie today. This recipe was loved by everyone in my family and I will be making this often. It really warms your tummy. We found it full of flavor,very simple to make with easy to follow instructions. One review stated that it was too bland...I didn't think so. It was basic,nothing fancy,which always makes it a winner in my house! Thanks!!!"
"I have been looking for some way to use up some of the meat on the big pork roasts hubby crockpots and this did the trick. I used gluten free egg noodles and I also added a couple of handfuls of sauteed fresh peas from the garden. This is a keeper recipe."
"So easy and so delicious! Thank you for this recipe :)"
"I just have to say YUMMY!!"
"Wonderful, tasty, and oh so easy. Was leary of cooking noodles in broth only and not much liquid, but it turned out simply awesome. Very easy, and added to my list of favorite pork dishes!! Thanks for the easy dinner. Leftover were just as awesome and easily re-heated in the microwave."
"Very good. I boiled home-made egg noodles in onion soup mix before adding to the meat. I had never shredded meat before, but it worked good. Thanks for a great recipe."
"I was trying to find a recipe to use up some leftover shredded pork. This is perfect! I mixed some sour cream with some of the broth to make a gravy of sorts, kinda like stroganoff. Served with fried apples and a side salad. My hubby and I loved it. Thanks! :)"
"I made this exactly as written. It tasted very good, but it was a little disapointing as far as how it looked on the plate. DH said it looked like it was missing something. I will make it again (the crockpot cooked the meat just great) but I will thicken the broth into gravy next time."
"I had a left over pork roast. So I put it in some chicken broth. with a onion, garlic and spices.let it cook until very soft. Revoved the meat and cooked the noodles in the gravy, than broke up the meat and returned to noodle and broth. This was very tasty. Thanks Aggiezoey. for a good way to use left over meat."
"This is very tasty and simple. I cooked the porkloin in the beef broth for 6 hrs in the crock pot. I liked the gravy idea, may try that next time. Leftovers were great, too."
"This was really simple to make. I cooked the pork loin in the crock pot. I added Lipton's Onion soup mix to the water to give the pork loin more flavor. My teenage daugther loved this recipe and wants to have it again. It is a good basic recipe."
"I read the comments and made a few changes. Great way to cook the pork, it too about 3 hours, slwoly, in a covered pot on the stove, then I shredded it. Reallyy good. I did use egg noodles, but cooked them separately, and added at the last minute. It still needed some taste, so I made up a packet of pork gravy I had, and a packet of mushroom gravy and mixed them in. Served with green onions on top. Very basic, homestyle comfort food. I bet it will be good leftover too."
"I was so pleased with the pork! What a great easy way to prepare it. I did have difficulty with my noodles. I kept adding more broth (almost 4 cans) since my noodles were sticking to the pan (even with non-stop stirring). Next time I will just make regular noodles and stir some broth in at the end to flavor. This is very good with some sliced green onions on top! Thanks Aggiezoey for posting. Roxygirl"
"The pork came out wonderfully. It fell apart and made shredding simple. I thought it was the best pork I had ever made, and no marinade or special concoction was required! The noodles disappointed me. They were so dry and shiny when they reached the table that I had to poke one to make sure it was actually cooked. Maybe the secret is the type of noodle used by the author, who did not specify. The flavor of the noodles was boring but also tempered the saltiness of the pork for a nice blend. The textures were okay together, but noodles should never be harder than the meat with which they are served. It is not natural. I would make this again with a third cup of broth or even consider adding pork gravy or cream of mushroom soup."
"The roast was good and tasty, and will make for good leftovers. However, nobody in my family liked the noodles. Mostly it was just all around bland."
"This was excellent and very easy! I used a 2 lb. peppercorn pork loin and put it in the crock pot with 1/2 cup of chicken broth (just to use it up) and cooked it for 6 hours. This makes a very large amount. I served it with fried cabbage and onions, green peas and apple crumb pie. Pure comfort food all around."
