Ingredients

  • 1 3-4 lb pork roast

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 TBSP honey
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp cornstarch

Instructions

How long does it take to cook a pork roast in a slow cooker?

  • Place roast in slow cooker. Combine remaining ingredients (except cornstarch) 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.

How do you cook a Pork Roast in an Instant Pot?

  • Place Pork Roast roast in Instant Pot. Combine remaining ingredients (except cornstarch) in a small bowl, increasing broth from 1 cup to 1 1/2 cups. Whisk together and pour over roast.
  • Lock lid on and set Instant Pot to Manual High Pressure for 65 minutes (for a 2-lb Sirloin Tip Roast that was fall-apart tender. Add 10 minutes per additional pound of pork roast.)
  • When timer beeps, let it Natural Pressure Release.
  • Remove lid and ladle out about 1/4 cup of the juice and strain into a measuring cup.
  • Whisk in 2 tsp cornstarch. Add in additional juice to make 1 cup.
  • Microwave on high for 30 seconds and whisk again. Drizzle sauce over meat prior to serving.
