This was somewhat "cacciatore" like, so if I make it again I will add a little red wine and some olives during the last 15 minutes or so of cooking. Otherwise not exactly memorable, but still quite good.

I followed the recipe exactly and I was really disappointed. It was ok but I expected much more flavor. I don't think I want to spend any time to tweak it. I will not be making this again

This was fantastic!! The subtle flavors all came together after their time in the slow cooker and made a tender, falling apart roast and a rich, thick ragout full of mushrooms and tomatoes and a hint of thyme. My hubby had two plates and is looking forward to leftovers. The ONLY thing I did differently is to flour the meat and brown it first and deglaze my pan with a little red wine and the tomatoes before I added them to the crockpot. I will *definitely* be making this again!

Served this for 15 people...used 3 4 lb Pork Cushion roasts...also browned meat and deglazed with Port Wine. Added garlic and a small can of tomato juice. Just used regular mushrooms. Served with homemade Spaetzle...gravy was great and the whole meal received rave reviews. Will definately make again.

I gave this one star because I won't make this again. But it certainly wasn't terrible--completely edible really--but not a lot of flavor and not my favorite way to eat pork roast.

This was a great meal. I added the wine like others suggested. I skipped the roasted tomatoes and did roasted peppers, which added a lot of flavor.

This was easy to assemble but didn't deliver much on flavor in the end. I added a tsp of sugar and a little red wine to the sauce, which helped a little. I probably won't make this again.

I was so excited about all the ingredients, but was disappointed with the results. I thought the sauce was actually very bland.

This was excellent! I had a 1.7 pound center cut, boneless pork roast and normally it ends up dry when I cook it. I uses baby bellas (portabellas) instead of criminis, Italian Diced tomatoes, and Tuscan seasoning from Victoria (no relation) and I did not brown the meat. I served it with rice and it was EXCELLENT! I will definitely make this again (and eat the rest over the next few days).
