Slow Cooked Balsamic Pork Roast

Recipe acquired from http://www.theblondcook.com.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 8 hours

Yields: 6 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 (3 pound) boneless center cut pork roast
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon fresh minced garlic

Instructions:

  1. Place pork roast in your slow cooker (fat side up – note; I trimmed my fat off).
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients and pour over pork roast.
  3. Cook for 6-8 hours (mine cooked for 8 hours) on low setting. Note: I ladled the juice sporadically throughout cooking.
  4. Serve and ladle juice over roast before serving.

Difficulty Level (1 lowest-5 highest):

2 (only because you have to gather and mix all ingredients, but overall pretty easy-peasy!

Personal notes:

I followed this recipe exactly aside from the note above about the fat. I served this over mashed potatoes and ladled some juice over it. I also sautéed some mushrooms and placed those on top and I served with a side of asparagus. Two thumbs up from hubby, he can’t wait to get the leftovers in a burrito.

Enjoy!!
