  1. It would have been nice to know which kind of broth to use, before I used beef and ruined my whole pork roast I bought. Got to reading about pork roast and realized you should never use beef. Now my meal for tonight is ruined.

    • did it really ruin it?? The recipe is pretty versatile, I’d imagine it’d taste a bit different, but it’d still be edible. I tend to use either vegetable broth or chicken broth.

    • Meghan, it’s better to not say anything if you can’t say something nice! And by the way, I ONLY use beef broth particularly because it adds more flavor. This is a great recipe!

  2. Meghan, maybe you should have gotten around to reading before hand instead of trying to blame someone who is just offering a recipe they like, really that is pathetic!

    • I used beef broth and it had so much flavor that I added another half cup of water. My whole family liked it. I made it with a side of fried rice.

  3. This is DELICIOUS!! Made it tonight for dinner & this is going in my regular rotation. And thank you for sharing it! Surprised anyone would be anything but grateful for your time & efforts!!

  4. Thank you for the recipe! I made it with beef broth since that is what I had and thought it turned out great and so did my teenage kids and their friends ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I’ve never tried that, but if it were me, I’d only add half Worcestershire sauce. Let me know how it turns out– this is actually in my crock pot again for dinner tonight too!

    • I wouldn’t extend it by much, maybe 1.5 hours or so, but I would sear the roast on all sides in a hot pan with some oil in it before slow cooking. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I LOVE ONIONS. IF I ADD SOME ON THE BOTTOM OF THE CROCK POT FOR THE ROAST TO SIT ON, WILL IT DESTROY THE FLAVOR? THE RECIPE LOOKS DELISH!

    • Hi Debra! So it has a good amount of flavor as is, but I know what you mean- I like onions too! I’d add a more mild, sweet onion and just use half. Tell me how it goes!
