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!

  1. Holy Pork! This dish looks incredible! I’ll steam some white rice to pair this up with. I’ll do something about this craving now… 😉
