"I have cooked pork roasts that were four pounds and started off frozen in a slow cooker. Perfect temperature every time. Way over what the minimum temp required even."

"A question: I am always leery of cooking pork in a slow cooker. Does the pork internal temps get high enough to keep meat safe????"

"This recipe as written would glaze the meat. If you put it in the slow cooker you would infuse the meat with flavor, and then could use the corn starch slurry to thicken the gravy it will make. You might want to pan brown the pork first to sear in juices."

"Can these ingredients be placed in a slow cooker for 4-5 hours, instead of the oven?"
