  • Absolutely delicious! We also served it with your easy Brussel sprout recipe. Myself, my husband and daughter also loved both of theses recipes!

  • I’m trying this tonight but I could only find 1.5 lb cuts of the pork. I bought two since I’m feeding lots of folks. But do I need to adjust the cooking time down since my cuts are smaller? How long on low?
