Slow Cooked Pork Roast

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.

ATTN: This.Is.Comfort.Food.


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!
