Slow-Cooked Pork Roast
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 6 hours + standing
This was delicious! Looking over the previous reviews and in order to use what I had on hand, I did make a few changes. I didn't have apple juice, so I added applesauce - about 3 tablespoons. I also didn't have enough fresh lemons for the zest, so I added zest along with the juice of one lemon. I also added about 2 or 3 tablespoons of brown sugar and about 1/2 of an onion- sauteed. I did use the liquid smoke as well. Excellent!
Delicious! Will be making this again. No changes needed.
I made this tonight for the first time and will definitely make it again!! It was delicious and the whole family loved it. I omitted the liquid smoke but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. My roast was larger, about 5.5lbs. I did not double any ingredients - there was plenty of liquid to the roast. I think this also helped in making the roast tender but it did not fall apart. I cooked it on low for 6 hours and left it on the warming temp for 30 minutes. I poured the remaining juices from the pan over the leftovers to ensure they stay just as moist and tender. I think the next time I make this I will saut? a shallot for the sauce and add a little brown sugar. I think the shallot will add to the already great flavor.
I used pineapple chunks and mashed them a bit. I used just one can and added a cup of water. I followed the rest of the recipe. I served rice on side, using the juice in crockpot, on the rice. Was a nice blend of flavors.
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.
