Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Over the winter, I had purchased a variety pack of meat from a local CSA. One of the items was a Pork Roast. Since it was my first time buying anything from a CSA, I wanted to do something a little different with it, to give the meat a chance to shine through and not be to covered in a sauce. That seemed the  best way for me to judge the quality of this meat and see if I wanted to purchase more.

I finally found a recipe that seemed to be what I was looking for. It had nice flavor, but wasn't to heavy. It was delicious! The meat definitely shined through! Served with Maple Glazed Carrots and some Garlic Smashed potatoes, the meal was complete.

Slow Cooker Pork Roast (adapted from

1 large onion, sliced
2 1/2 pound pork roast
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. black pepper
1 c. hot water
1/4 c. sugar
3 T. cider vinegar
2 T. soy sauce
1T. ketchup
1/2 t. garlic powder

Season roast with salt and pepper.  In large pan, brown roast all both sides.  Arrange onion slices evenly over the bottom of the slow cooker.  Place roast on top of the onions.  In bowl, mix together remaining ingredients. Pour over roast.

Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours, or high for 3-4 hours.
