I realize everyone is looking for Thanksgiving recipes right now, but since I recently made this and it was such a success at home I wanted to share my newest slow cooked roast pork recipe.
Turkey needs a sidekick, a partner, a comrade, right?
To hell with ham.
I’m not the biggest pork fan, but every now and then when it’s cooked right, I adore it.
Especially on tacos.
Well….ok, mainly on tacos. Oh – wait, and barbecue. Forgot about that main food group.
But the sauce that I used on this pork made it so decadent that I might just have to make it again very soon. It makes a great marinade, gravy and/or dipping sauce and the pork falls apart.
Did I just use the word decadent? I think I did.
Slow Cooked Pork Roast
1 two-three pound pork roast
1 onion, sliced
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil
3 tbsp hoisin
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp garlic, minced
2 tsp ginger, minced
1 tbsp onion powder
1/2 cup chicken stock
Combine all ingredients except for the pork and onion slices, whisking to combine. Put the roast with the onion in a slow cooker and then pour the sauce over. Cook on low 6-8 hours.
Cut and serve with your fave side dishes – mashed potatoes, rice, stuff into tacos or make sandwiches.
Now, before you zone out and super-fast scroll down to the picture, please pay attention. Pay Attention Please. I made wasabi mashed potatoes – WASABI. I want to use profanity at this moment to get my point across, but I will contain myself.
Ok, I’m over the profanity thing. Well, maybe for a minute or two.
Anyway….that’s a post that will come very soon but it’s definitely not rocket science.
In the meantime enjoy the pork roast!
