I used a 4 lb pork roast and cooked on low for 6 hours. It was quite good. The sauce is sweet but not too sweet. It's like the old standby pork and applesauce. I will make this again.

Recipe didn't say what size pork roast or what size crock pot so I had to kinda guess. I used a 3 pound roast in my 5 qt (I think that's what size it is) crock. There was a lot of the cinnamon sugar mixture and I was afraid it would make the pork too sweet so after rubbing it on the pork I put the rest over the apples and then put the pork on top of them. I think that turned out pretty good.

Made as instructed. Only had 2 apples and it was absolutely FANTASTIC. Turned out very moist. Served with butternut squash risotto and roasted brussel sprouts. So easy and delicious!

I made this last night and incorporated some of the comments. I used about a cup of applesauce and one apple, as well as an onion. I used on Tb of brown sugar and a splash of apple cider vinegar. I coated the roast with a little bacon grease. My husband really enjoyed it, and he generally hates cooked fruit.

I used the version with less sugar and with onions. The "sauce" of onions and apples was fantastic over the pork. But, the roast was very dry. I don't think I'd do pork loin like that again - maybe a fattier cut would come out not as dry.

I also added an onion to the apples and changed to 2 Tbsp. of brown sugar. My family enjoyed this recipe and I would make it again

This was good, but would have been wayyyyy too sweet for us if I had used 3/4 cups of sugar. I used 2 Tbls of brown sugar, and it was perfect. I also added one onion and seared the pork loin before adding it to the crock pot. This is definitely a keeper recipe.
