Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast
I made pork loin last week and it really made me want to try other recipes involving pork. I found a pretty pork rib loin at Teeter over the weekend, so I thought I'd give this recipe a shot. The other great thing is that you can cook it in the slow cooker, which makes life much easier. It also makes your place smell delightful :) My only alteration of this recipe was the cooking time. The original recipe said to cook on high for 3-4 hours, but I checked the pork loin about 2.5 hours in, and it was already well done. I would suggest checking the temperature about 2 hours in, just to see where you are. As usual, this is great for leftovers! Ingredients
1 large onion, sliced
2 1/2 pounds boneless pork loin roast
1 cup hot water
1/4 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon ketchup
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 dash hot pepper sauce, or to taste
Arrange onion slices evenly over the bottom of the slow cooker, and then place the roast on top of the onion. In a bowl, mix together water, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, ketchup, black pepper, salt, garlic powder, and hot sauce; pour over roast.
Cover, and cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours, or on High for 3 to 4 hours.
