    Make this for the first time yesterday, and it was perfect! The pork loin was tender and the glaze is amazing! The meat fell apart so I served it with Hawaiian rolls to make sliders and the glaze on the side for dipping. Really great recipe!

    I made this tonight for the first time, and it was a huge success. I used one cup of red wine instead of the 1/2 cup of water for cooking in. Otherwise, I kept all ingredients the same. I cooked it on low for 8 hours, and then due to a scheduling issue, it sat on “warm” for about an hour. The tenderloin was moist and fell apart so easily during carving. Could easily be a pulled pork recipe. the glaze was outstanding. Will make this one again!

    Bummer Trina! I hate it when a recipe doesn’t turn out. But it sounds like an easy fix. It’s true for beef (the longer it cooks the more tender it is), but chicken can taste like a hockey puck if it cooks to long. It sounds like your crock cooks hot. The newer ones do and you can’t leave some things in them as long as you used to. 5 or so hours may be long enough for your chicken. Just be sure and use a meat thermometer to make sure it reaches an internal temp of 165 to be sure. Happy Crockin’, girl!

    The flavor was good, but the meat was super dry! I cooked it on low for about 7 hours… maybe too long? I have never had meat dry out in the crock pot before… usually it gets more tender the longer it cooks.

    Absolutely excellent! My cut turned out to be two pieces totally 2.6 pounds but it still worked and tasted awesome!

    Really good and so easy! The meat was a little dry even after six hours, but I think my crock cooks hot. The sauce was superb and my daughter loved it!

    Our family loves this recipe. We can’t get enough of it! I have tripled the recipe for large gatherings and it works just as well.

    This is FANTASTIC!!!

    I prepared this recipe for my family and the consensus agreed: it tasted like pork strips from a Chinese take out joint but with a balsamic vinegar aftertaste…..not very appealing. This recipe could use some work.

    Made this today. Everyone loved it, even the kids, who are the pickiest eaters on the planet! I had it on low for about 6 hours, then moved it to warm for the last 2 hours.
