Slow-Cooked Pork Roast Recipe

This pork roast makes a wonderful summer meal, as the oven never needs heating. It's so tender, it just falls apart when served.—Marion Lowery, Medford, Oregon

looking for something different in the slow cooker with my pork roast. This fits the bill. The sauce is sweet and savory... very good!

I have made this recipe several times. My family loves it! The only change I make is to omit the lemon peel and smoke flavoring. Other than that, I keep it as is. I am never sure how long to cook it however, as the recipe says 6-7 hours and also 4 hours plus standing. I usually cook it the full time, but it always just falls apart. I think I will cut back the cooking time to 4-5 hours and see what happens. Delicious!!

Will definitely make this again. It's a good, solid recipe. The meat was so tender--it looked nothing like the photo because it all fell apart! I used fresh rosemary, and it might've been a little strong. Otherwise, great.
