Excellent! Definitely making this again!, Member Shannon.L

I used a pork loin (not tenderloin) roast that was about 2.75 lbs. I didn't have whole garlic cloves, but I had minced garlic (wet) so I rubbed a bit of that on the roast. It was up to temp when I checked it about 5 hours later. The meat was not dry, and the sauce makes sure there is no dryness going on. After reading other reviews, I decided to cut up a couple small apples (I had Golden Delicious apples) & add them to the liquid I did not pour off when it was time to add the final sugar/cinnamon mix. I made a little extra sugar/cinnamon mix (1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon) & sprinkled some on the diced up apple in the liquid, let it cook for another hour. Definitely don't drain off the liquid, put it in a sauce pan at the end & thicken with corn starch for a nice sauce. I added the diced apples to the finished thickened sauce. I served it over top of white rice, and had mixed frozen veggies on the side. This was very easy & very good!! I'm glad I added the apples, it really went well with all the flavors. I get tired of making the same ol' basic pork loin roast with veggies, same ol' seasoning.....its nice to find a flavorful recipe that's easy to make.
