Today I’m bringing you a delicious dinner that cooks to perfection in the crockpot! Don’t you love meals like that? I know I do.  Just a handful of ingredients and you can practically forget about it. I served this pork roast with brown rice and a side of green beans. Healthy, easy to make and minimal effort. Enjoy!

Slow Cooker Pork Roast

  • 1 3-4 lb pork roast (mine was bone-in pork shoulder)
  • 1 cup broth
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 TBSP honey
  • 2 tsp minced garlic

Place roast in slow cooker. Combine remaining ingredients in a 2-cup measuring cup. Whisk together and pour over roast. Cook on low 10-12 hours for that fall-apart, insanely tender type of meat. (Or on high 6-8 hours.)

Prior to serving, ladle out about 1/4 cup of the juice in the crock pot and strain into a measuring cup. Whisk in 2 tsp cornstarch. Add in enough juice to make 1 cup. Microwave on high for 30 seconds and whisk again. Drizzle sauce over meat prior to serving.

  1. It would have been nice to know which kind of broth to use, before I used beef and ruined my whole pork roast I bought. Got to reading about pork roast and realized you should never use beef. Now my meal for tonight is ruined.

    • did it really ruin it?? The recipe is pretty versatile, I’d imagine it’d taste a bit different, but it’d still be edible. I tend to use either vegetable broth or chicken broth.

  2. Meghan, maybe you should have gotten around to reading before hand instead of trying to blame someone who is just offering a recipe they like, really that is pathetic!
