Orange Pork Roast Recipe

Overccoking can cause pork roasts to be dry and tough. But this recipe's succulent orange sauce guarantees that the meat turns out moist and tender.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 8 hours YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 boneless pork shoulder butt roast (3 to 4 pounds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1. Cut roast in half; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place in a 5-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the orange juice concentrate, honey, cloves and nutmeg; pour over pork. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours. Reduce heat to low and cook 6 hours longer or until meat is tender.
