Instead of using canned mushrooms, I used a gluten free cream of mushroom soup. The roast turned out great with roasted potatoes.

I made this one in the crockpot and it was amazingly tender. Perfect texture if you want to use leftovers to make pulled pork. The accompanying sauce was pretty good too - even my super-picky 8 year old liked it! Personally I thought it could use a bit more spice to it; next time I'll try to kick it up a bit and see what happens

I made this as written. It was tender and my husband enjoyed it but I did not care for the flavor myself. Maybe it was the ketchup? I would not discourage others from making it, though. It was just not to my taste.

I did this in the slow cooker and used the whole can of chicken broth. I also used fresh mushrooms and added them at the begining. I cooked it on low over night. It was great,
