Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Would you suggest cutting slits in the top of the roast if you are going to cook it in the slow cooker, or would you just rub it in like the recipe says anyway? I think this dish would go great with some broccoli or a salad and a healthy fruit dessert for afterwards. Maybe a few of the cloud bread slices as a low-carb side to finish the meal out and give it a filling tone.

Hi there! The Test Kitchen does not recommend cutting slits into the roast because the moisture will escape and dry out the meat. Enjoy!

I don't really care for pork, but this was great!

This one of the best diabetic recipes that I tried and will make again and again

Hello! - Yes, you can cook this pork roast in your slow cooker. We suggest cooking for 3-1/2 to 4-1/2 hours on low heat, or until meat is no longer pink in the center. Enjoy!

can you put in crock pot
