    This is one of the best Porketta recipes to date! Easy to make! Toss it in the slow cooker with potatoes and carrots and you'll have a dinner everyone will enjoy!  -  15 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    The first time I made this recipe, I would have given it 3 stars. The flavor did not infuse the meat as I would have liked. I made it again with a few modifications and it was WONDERFUL! First, I salted the roast before applying the rub. Second, I ground the fennel and dill. Third, I added 1 tsp. of paprika because all the pre-made porketta roasts in the meat section have it. Also, I put it in the slow cooker for 10 hours on low, turning once half-way through. Before serving I cut the meat and let it soak in the juices for about 5 minutes. MMMM. I think the leftovers will be shredded and used in sandwiches.  -  29 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Yum! Thanks for the recipe - My sister's in-laws are Italian and this is their traditional Christmas Day dinner, but they usually order the seasoned roast from a local deli. They use rosemary instead of the dill, though. We always roast potatoes in the pan so they get all crisp and seasoned by the spices and drippings - Delicious!  -  29 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
