Recipe type: Slow Cooker
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6-8
  • 1 boneless pork loin roast, 4 to 6 pounds
  • 1 clove garlic, halved
  • salt and pepper
  • 1⅓ cups brown sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Wash pork roast, trim excess fat, pat dry, and rub with garlic halves.
  2. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then prick the roast all over with a fork or skewer.
  3. In a bowl, combine 1 cup of the brown sugar, the mustard, and vinegar. Rub all over the roast.
  4. If desired, add any vegetables to the bottom of the pot that you want to cook with the roast, such as carrots, potatoes, asparagus or peas. (The flavors of the vegetables and meat will intermingle while slow cooking.)
  5. Place roast in crock pot/slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for about 6 hours (check internal temperature for doneness).
  6. Combine the remaining ⅓ cup brown sugar with cinnamon; spread the mixture over the top of the roast.
*Lift the lid of your crock pot approximately 30 minutes before serving and check if the sauce has thickened. If it's not thick enough, pour a flour (or cornstarch) mixture into the pot and stir well. Replace the lid and turn the heat up to high for the remaining 30 minutes of cooking time. Turn the heat off after the meal has finished cooking and allow it to set for 5 to 10 minutes. The sauce will thicken upon standing.
